Thursday 14th July 2011……moving east a little ways!!!

Said my goodbyes to Joy and Colin around 9.30am this morning and I must say what a great time I had with them and cannot say enough about how kind they were thanks!!!!

Colin led me out to the highway and had given me instructions how to get onto the big Highway 401 on the outskirts of Toronto I had heard about this highway it was like 42 lanes well maybe   a little less  but it was busy and I had vehicles flying by me on both sides but with Colin’s directions I made it through with only one wrong turn which I quickly corrected.

Sorry there are no photos as my camera is toast so I shall go to Costco tomorrow and yet again plead and try and get it replaced!!!!

By 3.30pm I was pulling into my destination

It was a great walk and the city is very clean lots of green spaces and seems like a really modern and energetic community!!

Back home I was in for a treat Scott had been telling me about desert….BBQ donuts….now I have never heard of this before but what the heck I love donuts and I like BBQ…..

It was a family affair with Scott getting help from Heather and Becky!!!
