October 14 to October 20

October 14, 2012
Had breakfast at Burger Hut. Washed and put china away. Worked on the computer. I lead a dull life. Looked at knitting books and on the computer and started a sweater for myself in a dark burgundy. Cool and rainy.

Up at 7 :( and picked Harry & Carole up at 8 . Some stop and go across Toronto. Arrived at Caesar's in Windsor around 2:30. We stopped once for lunch and a second time to change drivers as Harry knew the way. We checked in and did the looong walk to our rooms. The rooms are lovely, king size bed and a fridge and safe. We went for a swim in the pool, did some slot machines and went to the buffet for supper. It was terrible! All the food stations are circles so it is very confusing. Some of the food was not hot and other things had been under heat lambs so long they were dried out. Went to play on the machines for a bit and then went back to the pool for awhile and went to bed early.

Left around 9 am stopped at a Tim Horton's for breakfast on our way to the St. Bernard's Capuchin Monastery in Detroit. It is the home of Venerable Fr. Solanus Casey who was a porter for the capuchin's in several monasteries and is known for his kindness and cures. It was a well laid out building with great story boards and pictures of his life and beautiful gardens. The Church has a beautiful hand carved altar and wood organ pipes. We were happy to be back in Canada even though we enjoyed the trip. We had lunch in our room and after a quick nap we went to the pool again. We waited in line for an hour at a hole in the wall cafe and had to throw out the soup it was so awful! Harry gave me his ticket to the show which was great. It was called a Tribute, A Salute to the Superstars” and featured impersonators of Rod Stewart, Garth Brooks, Neil Diamond and Tina Turner. The MC was a comedian and did hid stand up between Garth and Neil and he was very good too. Lost some money afterwards and went to bed.

We got organized and went to McDonalds for breakfast and hit the road for home. We stopped to change drivers and John took over and we had very little trouble getting across Toronto. Exited at Ajax and went to a Subway for lunch and took the back route home arriving around 3:30. had my coffee fix and got caught up on mail and messages.
