Our Eastern Adventure Part 1

We left Winnipeg last Sunday morning right after Brodie finished his elite run. Our border crossing was very quick and uneventful and we powered through to Menomonie Minnesota where we crashed for the night. We hit the road Monday morning at 6am determined to make it to the Canadian border before dark so we would not have to spend a scary night in Detroit or Flint Michigan. We spent Monday night in London Ontario before heading up to visit Sean and Catherine in Meaford on Tuesday.

We were so blessed to have incredible weather all week and our dogs got along famously with Phoebe, their newest four-legged addition to the family.

They live on an amazing 100 acre parcel of land with pastures and a wonderful forest. Every day, sometimes twice a day, we walked all the dogs off leash on a 3+km loop (I’m sure they did 3 or 4 times that distance). They were in puppy heaven running, wrestling and just being free to roam.

For our last two nights we stayed in a house right beside the Meaford harbour. This was my view as I walked the dogs in the morning

On our last full day in Meaford we got to visit Sean’s fire hall (he is a volunteer firefighter) and watch him as he helped out welcoming the public to family fun day as part of Fire Prevention Week.

Catherine made us a scrumptious Thanksgiving dinner, in fact she spoiled us all week with so many wonderful vegan meals

We went for one last family dog walk this morning before we headed off to our next stop. Look at the amazing fall colours.
