Happy Zero nine everybody.
Zero eight saw us bounce around from one part of the Canada to another. And we're still bouncing!
Theresa and I left Sioux Lookout a week before old St. Nick saddled up the reindeer, and headed south-east, our first stop was Thunder Bay. Although far from tropical, we enjoyed our walk along the lake shore, as well as the delights of T-Bays bookstores. Snow-shoeing with our friends was great fun, as were the pot-luck suppers and secret Santas.
We then drove for 20 odd hours through the icy domain of northern Ontario's frozen interior, whizzing through a few small communities en-route before ending up in Casselman in the far south eastern region of Ontario. We spent about a week with Theresa's mum and enjoyed the annual delights of French-Canadian culture, festive dining, fine wines and freezing rain. We threw in a whirlwind visit to Ottawa, Canada's national capital, a quick visit in Lachute (Quebec) to see some of Theresa's French relatives, some poutine (french-fries with gravy and cheese curds), and an overnight stay with friends in Osgoode (ON).
Theresa and I had a mellow New Years Eve in Pembroke at a lovely Thai restaurant.
On the move again, we are sending you greetings from yet another motel in Cochrane, while we wait out a snowstorm.
Happy New Year. D + T.
