As I told you on Monday, we spent the night at Helen’s in beautiful Woodstock, Ontario.
I was up around 6:30 a.m. and made myself a coffee with the Tassimo. The sunroom was waiting for me to welcome the singing birds. Helen and Ruth showed their heads from under the covers around 8:00 a.m., and we sat down to a great breakfast of cereal, toast, yogurt, strawberry rhubarb jam and peanut butter with juice and coffee.
Then Ruth and I were off to the 401 to Guelph to check in with Jean Julian where we will stay tonight.
We went to lunch at the With the Grain restaurant to meet up with Alberta, Pauline and Gwen. I found it was quite hard to visit with five people at the same time, and the restaurant is converted from an old house and the acoustics were not good, so I let the four of them visit while I took pictures and did some writing.
I had an egg salad sandwich, and it was good, but it pales in comparison to what I had at the Two Chicks Cafe in Sauble Beach. So far, the Two Chicks Cafe takes home the absolute FIRST prize for all the egg salad sandwiches I have had on this trip. You might remember that I wrote about the two chicks going to the Two Chicks Cafe earlier in our adventure, and it was one of my favourite Wi-Fi stops when we were at Sauble Beach.
After lunch, we drove to the Basilica as everyone had been talking about the renovations that have been made to the church. It is now very elegant.
The highlight of my visit there was while I was trying to get a picture of the whole church, a young fellow by the name of Chris was riding his bike down the 60 steps to the front of the church.
We left there for a visit with Tom and Elinore Hulland for a few minutes and then went off for dinner with Ruth’s sister Velma.
