Wheatley May 10-12, 2013

A wonderful week-end was had by all. We did lots of hiking and went to Point Pelee National Park. I was able to get my first picture of an owl. How exciting! We had a few great meals and cousin Joanne's ribs were delicious. :o) and yes we did return the borrowed item back to the LCBO in Wheatley. I was a little shocked when it started snowing just before we headed home. I didn't think it was that cold!!! It was a white knuckle drive home for Duncan as he battled the wind gusts up to 70 km all the way, but we made it home safely.  The sun would shine at times and at others we were in a snow storm. I will update with more info later but I know some of you look for the update on Tuesday so I will add more soon.
