Doing laundry and hanging it outside to dry was not an option this day, but a Bruce Peninsula Road Trip seemed like the thing to do ! I rang up my girlfriend, BJ, who was up for the trip and it was a go ....
Once I had picked up BJ we headed on North of the Checkerboard. I can't think of what time it was when we reached our destination, but I have to think it must of been somewhere around 10:30 am? By this time we had made it up the Peninsula just before the turn off to Miller Lake.
BJ and I really enjoyed meeting this lady. It is so nice to see there are still lots of lovely nice people out there, is it not? It overjoys me when I have the benefit of meeting such individuals. There is still lots of hope out there in this big old World, is there not?
I had never been to the Saturday Farmer's Market at Lion's Head. This was our next plan of action after first turning off Hwy 6 onto Cherry Hill Road to see ....
The Studio was closed this day, so I am thinking Bobbi might have been at her new location in Clavering, located further down South on Hwy. 6 between Wiarton and Hepworth. Another time I will catch up with Bobbi I am sure.
Onward we continued towards Lion's Head where we arrived down by the water on Forbes Street to where the Farmer's Market is located.
Hopefully the next time I go to visit the Lion's Head Farmer's Market the weather is a tad more warmer then it was this day .... brrr. I will then be sure to take my time to find out a bit about each individual vendor. This Market is every Saturday from 9 am til 12 noon running from Spring until Thanksgiving Weekend.
Once our browsing had came to an end with a happy feeling of contentment, we thought we should have ourselves a cup of Java to take the chill from our bones. We headed on down the street to ....
Since it was around lunchtime (I think?) BJ and I decided a bowl of soup would be a good idea too.
After an very enjoyable lunch, BJ and I headed out once again only to come across another little spot we thought we would like to "check out".
We made a mad dash back to the Van, as the rain was coming down in torrents for the ? time again today.
I am thinking we made it back South of the Checkerboard after 3 pm when I pulled back into BJ and Paul's driveway.
When I had pulled into the driveway I had noticed the flag up on our mailbox. I must have been too busy yesterday to check if there had been mail. I retrieved it to find there was HAPPY MAIL there for ME !!!
I had barely been home long enough to let all our Checkerboard Aussies out, about and in, wash up a few things in the kitchen sink, and check out all my Friendship gifts when it was time for me to hit the road again... and it was only after 4 pm or so? Breathe... I must remind myself to breathe.
*Sigh* arriving back home for the ? time today .....
Wowsers ! what a way to start off the first day of Fall 2012 ! I really enjoyed having a little bit of time out for myself today on the break away "Road Trip", spending some time with a friend, and just doing a bit of what I like doing, out and about.
I best be soon calling it a night here so I can hopefully get a good night's sleep, as one never knows what tomorrow will bring, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
