A Weekend Away!

Mr. B won an award at work "The President's Club" Award, so we went on a trip with 8 other couples (including the company president).


Our day started at Chudleighs Apple farm.

We picked an apple or two and then ate lunch.

Then we walked around and looked at the farm animals (aren't they cute?)

Someone making a donkey out of herself.....


I like llamas!

Then we traveled on to Stratford... did I tell you that we were in a party limo? Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of it.....

Then we checked into our hotel room, then went out for dinner. My meal wasn't all that photogenic, but Mr. B's scallops were!



Then we traveled down the street to the festival theatre to see Camelot. I'm not a big musical fan, but I love the story, and I really enjoyed watching Geraint Wyn Davies as King Arthur. (I've had a secret crush on him ever since Forever Knight, lol)


The next day we went out for brunch and had a bit of free time in Stratford. I found a fabulous clothing store, Resonance, and could have spent many hours and thousands of dollars in it. I'll be back there for sure...... There was a beautiful coat that I didn't buy... but I'm still dreaming of....

Then we waited for our limo back to Toronto. And we waited and we waited and we waited. The limo driver (not the one from the day before, a new one) had picked up our luggage at the hotel, and was driving our luggage back to Toronto. WITHOUT US! Sheesh.

But look what I found while we were waiting.

Justin Bieber's star. He's from Stratford. So hey all of you young ladies... I touched the star that Justin Bieber touched. I am so cool.

So we made it back to the big city a few hours late. But it was worth the trip :)

Ahhhhhhhh you saw Geraint Sun Davies!!! Jealous!! SWOONS. I *LOVED* Forever Knight. I went to a FK convention at a hotel in MA in '93? '94? Any ways, GWD, sadly, was not there but Deborah Duchene and Nigel Bennett were. Both were very cool. I will never forget Nigel strolling around the hotel carrying a rose and singing to himself. It was awesome.

So glad you had such a lovely time!!!

How nice to have a bonus trip! The farm looks like fun and Camelot is one of my favorite musicals (I, contrary to you, DO enjoy musicals). What did the limo driver say when he came back to pick you up?

It looked like one of those fawns was actually full grown in comparison. Was it? Haven't seen a spotted deer before so wondered...

Looks like a fab trip - perfect end of summer tour!

You are a totally cute donkey, and no, you are not cool. Justin Beiber is silly.
What a nice treat you guys had!! I'm hoping you have a trip to Denver.....
