Busy Weekend

On Friday a girlfriend from high school / university stopped for a visit on her way to her parent's place in Southampton. Her husband was with her but only stayed for a few minutes as he was going to ride his bike the rest of the way to Southampton, about 50 km. For him that's not a long ride ---- he competes in Iron Man competitions. From Wikipedia "An Ironman Triathlon is one of a series of long-distance triathlon races organized by the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) consisting of a 2.4 miles (3.86 km) swim, a 112 miles (180.25 km) bike and a marathon (26 miles 385 yards, 42.195 km) run, raced in that order and without a break." I'm still amazed to think that Tom does Ironman as I don't remember him being athletic in university.

Saturday it was off to the Steam and Antique Tractor Show in Paisley.

There were old cars

lots of old steam engines

and of course lots of old tractors.

The highlight for us is the "parade". The tractor on the left (no smoke) was having a problem so the tractor on the right (smoke) passed him.

Sunday we drove down to my mom's house in Burlington, dropped Zaph off and headed to Featherstone Estate Winery with friends for brunch. Yummy ...... four types of wine and three courses (rose to start, white with the soup, red with the steak main course, and desert wine with the double chocolate tart). It was a beautiful day to sit on the front porch and enjoy a wonderful brunch. Niagara on the Lake wasn't far away so we decided to go there to walk of some of the brunch.

The fort on the US side

Lots of people were enjoying a beautiful summer day .... one of the few we've had this year

An interesting "boat house"??? with a great view of the water.
