Southern Ontario

Southern Ontario is such a lovely place to visit.  The weather has been super this summer for riding motorcycles.  This past weekend we were riding with some good friends from Bright, Ontario - Dunc & Diane.  We were riding north and came through the little village of Wellsely when Wynn spied an adult sized tricycle. Now, this was something!  You see, prior to this day, we had been searching everywhere, to no avail, to try and find one for my 83 year old mother.  It was in pretty rough shape but when told it was only $10.00, Wynn said, "Sold!"  Wynn is pretty good at fixing things up, so we made arrangements to pick it up the next day. 

Continuing on, we rode to Mount Forest where they had a summer festival going on.  There were lots of old cars to see and a display of motorcycles as well.  I found some wonderful cream that is all natural called "Bee By the Sea" with Sea Buckthorn.  It is supposedly good for radiation burn (& age spots.)  I bought some for my brother Bill who is taking radiation treatment for rectal cancer.  I'll have to get some when I get home and try it for my 'spots' later.  I found it on the website and there is a distributor in Victoria.

There was also a fair as part of this festival, so we decided to check it out. The big drawing card was a square dance, and before you think I am square, it was with tractors.  That's right!  I said tractors!  If you have never seen this, you really should check it out.  There are 4 tractor pairs, (8 in total).  One of the drivers in each pair is dressed like a girl and both are in regular square dancing attire.  A lady is on stage calling out the moves and they drive around to the music.  It is truly fun and something the whole family would enjoy.  How they can move those tractors so quickly and turn so sharply is amazing.

After the 'square dancing', we took in a beef barbecue and decided to head on home.  It was a good idea, too, as there were lots of detours along the way.  All in all, it was a very fun and profitable day.
