A Week in Ontario

Family time in Toronto, Muskoka, St Catharines and Welland

overcast 22 °C

My son, Doug, invited me to come for a visit and of course I was quick to accept. On my first day in Toronto we had a barbeque at his house with my oldest grandchildren Tanya and Shannon and their families as well as grandson Chris and his partner Miriam. Shannon just got engaged to Ryan who has shown up on some of my earlier Blogs so that added to the festivities.

The next day Doug and I drove to his cottage in Muskoka where we joined my daughter-in-law Linda and granddaughter Carolyn. Unfortunately the weather was grey and drizzly but on the occasional breaks we ate on the deck, went for a walk and a boat ride. That gave lots of time for pleasant conversation, reading and watching DVD's in the evenings.

Back in Toronto it was my great pleasure to take Tanya and Shannon out to lunch one day and their Mother, Wendy on another. Then I borrowed Doug's car and drove to Niagara to visit my sisters-in-law Bev and Fran. I always enjoy doing that. So ended a terrific family vacation. Oh, one thing, Doug found it nerve wracking waiting for me to get back from Niagara........as bad as waiting up for teen-agers!

IMG_2035.jpg Visiting St Catharines always makes me nostalgic so I took this picture of the house my grandfather, Albert, visited when his grandmother lived there. Isn't it lovely? Imagine she was my great-great Grandmother.
