We have spent the last five days staying with Ali's relatives in Alliston. We had an excellent time - has very beautiful scenery and was really relaxing. We arrived on Friday night to a feast fit for a king! We spent the evening eating amazing home cooked food, drinking nice wine and laughing a lot! We then slept in a proper comfy bed for the first time in 3 months! On Saturday, it was a beautiful day so went for a walk around the area and saw some lovely sights. There was a beautiful golf course attached to a massive hotel and lake. We were very tempted to steal a golf cart and take it for a joy ride to remind us of camp! Saturday night we again had gorgeous home cooked food, nice wine and plenty more laughs! Sunday was spent down at the waterfront, watching all the yachts and catching the sun! Oh yes and Auntie Pat had fun with an ice cream - he he! Monday was labor day, which signifies the end of the summer season and means that everyone goes back to work on Tuesday. We had a parcel to send home today so we had fun packaging that up trying to get it as small as humanly possibly in order to bring down the cost of sending it home. Actually, Ed and Elmore had fun doing that while Auntie Pat and I watched with amusement! We spent the rest of the day relaxing on the deck, drinking and eating lots! On Tuesday Elmore had to go back to work so Auntie Pat took us into town where Ed got his first haircut since we left home and got flirted with my the Canadian hairdressers who were all gooey eyed and weak at the knees because of his sexy english accent! We were surprised his hair remained normal judging by her shaking hand! When we got back we had our final meal - a lovely vegetable casserole cooked by Auntie Pat. We have definitely been looked after well! We then went to the airport to catch our flight to Winnipeg. Auntie Pat and Elmore almost came through security with us but we had to say goodbye. We have had a fantastic time staying with them and were sad to leave. But its ok cos they are going to come to stay on our canal barge in a couple of years so we can repay their hospitality!!!
