My apologies for the lack of recent posts. We have not had internet connection since Friday. But now I am at our son’s house in Toronto, having dropped off Ted, our friend who volunteered to drive with us, and now waiting to pick up Sheila from the airport in a few hours. So, I have some catching up to do!
The 4th day offered a great reward, one day before reaching our final destination in Prince Edward County. We made good enough progress to be able to spend the night with Dan and Jemma, good friends from Langley. In fact, our timing was absolutely impeccable! After nearly 4,000 kms driving across the country, we turned into the side road to their cottage at exactly the same time as they did after having flown from Vancouver and being driven from the Toronto airport by Dan’s father. So we were all able to get in the boat together and save Dan a trip back to pick us up.

In addition, we were treated to wonderful hospitality by three generations of the Werner family in the lovely, rustic family cottage which has been in the family for over a century. Here are a few shots from our brief stay:
