DAYTRIPPING

My friend Michelle and I have done some great Daytripping since last Friday and I even Judged a Horse Show over the weekend too. We went over to Marine City, Michigan on the Ferry at Sombra ON. and had a great day looking around Antique shops and visiting a great Quilt Shop that had their Open House going on. It was called "Quilting Dreams". We had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant. Michelle and I both love seafood chowder, so our lunch was a bowl of seafood chowder and a perch sandwich. Absolutely delicous! We walked the town and visited all of the Antique shops before getting back on the Ferry and heading back home to Canada.
Another day, we went to the Aberfoyle outdoor Antique Market in Aberfoyle, Ontario. I was in all my glory. You could spend hours just wandering around looking at all the great antiques and we did just that. We both found a few treasures to take home too. After we left Aberfoyle, we headed over to New Hamburg, Ontario and visited a little Quilt/Gift shop in town, then had a wonderful lunch at Meme's cafe. Here are some pictures of our excursions. We had a great time.

  2. I love the Aberfoyle Flea Market. You need to get there early to take in everything. Looks like you had a great time. Daytripping is one of my favourite things to do!
