I managed to make it to my brother's house where I was to pick up my camera (in the back yard in the barbeque) and then found my way to the 407 and the 400. Once I got a short distance up the 400 I decided to stop at an Onroute (service center) and have a picnic lunch. To celebrate further I took a selfie - to share with family and friends on facebook.
Of course stopping for lunch then got me stuck in cottage country traffic but I still made good time and got settled into the hotel with loads of time.....
Huge room for one person no??? and the bed??!!! a whole village could have fit in it I swear !!!! I met up with eldest daughter and her partner for dinner and we feasted on good Chinese food ......... had a wonderful chat ....... and then we came back to the hotel - they went to the pool and hot tub and I went up to my room to watch some TV and veg.
Saturday morning I was up with the birds - went to the hotel gym - had breakfast and then headed out with my camera to explore Barrie. Those pictures I will save for another day........
And then of course Saturday afternoon was the wedding. It was beautiful (despite the cold and rain) but then aren't all weddings beautiful!!??
Sunday morning I had hoped to have a final breakfast with the family - but no one was up and about and I got restless so by 10:00 I was on my way down the 400 in the pouring rain.
I have to admit it was a fun adventure - BUT - it was good to come home!
