Today we left Richfield Springs for Windsor, Ontario. During the 8 plus hours of driving, we passed through some beautiful countryside.

Cocoa was a little unsettled again today so I took her cat bed out of the carrier and let her wander around the back for a while. She eventually went to the bed and slept most of the way.

I had forgotten how beautiful it was through the Niagara Region and around Burlington and Hamilton. We were in heavy traffic so we did not get a chance to stop to see Steve's brother Pat and sister-in-law Laurie - it is likely that Pat would have been at work as it was about 3:30 when we went through the area.

We arrived in Windsor at about 6:30 PM - 10 hours after leaving Trish and Mike's place. With traffic, the trailer and construction, along with the need to stop more often with the cats, the trip took two hours longer than expected.

After arriving at Maureen's place, she took us out to eat at one of her favorite eateries, Monaco Grille Méditerranéen - where we had a nice supper. The food was good.

When we got back to Maureen's, Katie and Kelly were there to greet us along with Max, Tobi, and BooBoo. Max is their pet Rottweiler who is more of a horse than a dog. He is still a puppy at just one and a half years old. He was brought up with Tobi, their pet Shitzu so Max thinks he is a lap dog like Tobi. BooBoo is their cat (Trish also has a cat BooBoo).

Gonzo and Cooca will not be meeting Max or Tobi...they are going to spend their visit in Amanda's room downstairs where the dogs can't get to...no question that Max would be a little overwhelming for them.

Tomorrow we are going to go visit my great nephew Brody (10 months old today) and niece Crystal (Brody's Mommy). We have not made any plans beyond that.

For now, we are off to have a good night sleep. More later!
