Went to 9:00 am Mass and worked till 1:00. Went to Staples to get paper for the Church and bought a Mini Keurig and the mini filter to go with it. Met my new Dr. Sue Pakenham who is a niece of Arn & Karen Patterson. Left my glasses there so had to buy new ones at the Dollar Store. Went to Dairy Queen for an early supper.

We were at the parking lot at 7:15 to meet the bus. Tom & Joyce and 2 other Norwood couples met us there. We picked up more passengers in Peterborough along with our tour guide Lyle. Another stop in Lyndsay for more passengers and a coffee break and 2 more passengers at the McDonalds on hwy 12. We arrived in Gravenhurst around 11 am. and boarded the Winnona II for our 3 hour boat cruise which included lunch. There was another bus load there from Hamilton and our lunch tickets got reversed so we ended up with the first sitting. The lunch was fantastic. roast turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and fresh carrots and cauliflower. Desert was an apple crisp. Very very good! We weather was windy but not cold and I spent most of the cruise after lunch outside on the front deck. We then bused to Johnston's Cranberry Marsh for a wagon tour and explanation on growing and harvesting cranberries which was very interesting and informative. We spent time in the gift shop and bought a few things such as jams and jellies and chocolate covered cranberries. Back on the bus to Orillia for supper at A & W and then home with drop offs for passengers along the way. Home at 9:30 and very tired and went strait to bed.

Sean's birthday. Joan picked me up and we went to watch the parade with Matthew & Beth and family. Met Brendon, Luke and Kendra there. I spent the day at the fair and looked at all the exhibits and photos and watched the horses. Cool and very windy.
