(warning: I took a lot of pictures today again)
Bill and I were awake and up by 7:30 on Saturday, Jan. 16th. I was hoping to get out for my walk by 8 but then I remembered that I was lazy last night and too tired to wait for my pictures to upload. For some reason, they were dawdling. So, I sat and finished publishing by 8:30 while Bill went down for his coffee.

Then, I went for my walk. It wasn’t 2 miles but it was nice to be out enjoying the beginnings of the sunny day. The sun wasn’t prominent all the time but it was nice to see it through the trees and over the rooftops. Who knew how long it would last! I walked down towards the campground along the river, not completely sure if I’d go the full gamut around.
Decision made as my feet kept on going my normal route. I did good getting out there today, almost talked myself out of it a couple of times. 😊 Coming back up towards the main street, I met a different lady with a beautiful husky. Well trained too, as he/she didn’t pull on the leash to come see me. I wouldn’t have minded; they are gorgeous dogs with eyes that seem to see into your soul.

Instead of going up to Queen St. I took one more detour back towards Water St. and came home the same way from which I started. It was long enough. I was ready for my tea when I returned but not because I was cold. It was a cool -4/26F. I just needed my tea. My upper left thigh still aches, and I could feel it as I walked. You’d think with the exercise I’m getting that it would improve. Strange, but I’ll survive!
The morning disappeared somehow. In there, I’d had my shower and we actually curled up and had another bit of sleep. Bill was up late finishing his book The Patriots Club so no doubt he was still tired.
At 12:45, we got up and went down to make brunch. I’d decided on toasted bacon, cheese and tomato sandwiches. A nice summer-type lunch since I had the tomatoes and we hadn’t had them for a long time. They were good too!
Bill wanted to take Black Beauty to fill her up so we drove to Hanover after dishes to do that. Gas and diesel prices are up a bit but we remember when they were $1.25/litre so won’t complain too loudly. We paid $1.02 today at the Pioneer and he added points to his Journie rewards at the same time.

We were behind a sanitation disposal truck
We took a tour around looking for something we’d heard about and then headed for home. Bill drove down the country road where he goes to Billy’s and it was nice to see new scenery.

For the afternoon, there was more relaxing, reading, dozing and enjoying the day together. On the way back from our drive, I asked him to take me down Victoria St. where the Book Barn is so I could drop off the next 3 books we’d finished. I’m almost done mine, so we’ll have to see what’s left to read. If only I could get to the Suite where my stash is!
My sweetie took me gravel running today 💓 He showed me very cool things to take pictures of A Convent??? on Bruce County Road 1?
Wow, things you never knew
I wish I'd got a picture of the building at the back
Next time, this time I was too blown away
It's a beautiful spot, out in the middle of nowhere
Supper tonight at 6 was reheated meals from the previous two nights. We each had potatoes, a veggie and roast beef from Marty’s. Reheating in the microwave is fine but it doesn’t stay hot for long. I ate what I could but still couldn’t finish all of the leftover baked potato. I was full. Bill finished off the Jell-o for his dessert and we were both content for the night.
|I shared some beef with Bill too|
With a mystery movie at 9, Bill went in to join Wes and Susan. He brought my ‘new’ chair up from the games room so I could be comfortable watching a movie of my choice in our room. I haven’t seen which one is next so will let you know tomorrow! This was a really nice, quiet day.
I have to give credit to a blogger friends,

An aerial shot of just a small section of Quartzite....it is estimated that up to 1 million people visit here each year in their RV's
Wish we were there!!
Thank you for your visit.
