To relax after a stressful week and the fact that today is Ed and my 28th wedding anniversary we went on a day trip. Even the weather co-operated --- temperatures just above freezing and no precipitation. As part of the adventure was to be geocaching we invited Rob and Ellen to join us (I think Rob enjoys geocaching, at least he seems to).

After we hit the road, we decided on our actual destination --- Owen Sound, a city about 45 minutes drive north of us.

Just outside of Owen Sound is Inglis Falls. Ed and I have driven past it a number of times but the opportunity to stop never presented itself but today it did.

The photos don't do it justice, it was absolutely beautiful. There was lots of water flowing over the falls and lots of ice and ice cycles on the rocks. Without sun you get a nice almost black and white photo.


We tromped around the park looking for a geocache. Zaph didn't seem to care about the geocache he was just enjoying tromping through the snow in the bush.

We stopped at a fifties diner for lunch. The decor was fun and the food delicious. After checking out the breakfast menu we plan on going for breakfast one day. I can't wait to try the Elvis special --- grilled peanut butter, honey, banana, bacon sandwich.

The ferry MS Chi-Cheemaun that goes from Tobermory to Manitoulan Island winters in Owen Sound harbour. As the water was very still, Ed had some fun with photographs.

Is this up?

or is this up?

Owen Sound has a large light display (a mini Hildago for our Texas friends). As it is dark before 5pm these days we hung around Owen Sound long enough to see the lights.


We had a fun and successful day --- 11 geocaches found (Ellen found the only one she helped the guys look for.
