Back to Work

Well, all good things must come to an end, and one has to work to make a living. Takes some time to get back into the swing of things, and to ease into blogging again, thought I'd share some fun and cool photos from our driving trip through Southwestern Ontario. It's summer, and I'm sure these are images we can all enjoy. Burgers, ice cream, cool cars, the beach and baseball. Am I missing anything here?

Photos courtesy of my Nokia N93, and I'm just flashing a few here. Lots more if anyone's interested. Enjoy, and then get back to work!

Classic burger joint at the Leamington ferry landing for Pelee Island. Looks like something out of Happy Days....


Such a charming, quaint place....


I know what you're thinking...

Not those Cone Heads --- these Cone Heads...


RM Classic Cars. If you're into vintage cars, you'll probably know about them. This is truly one world-class operation, right in the heart of Blenheim, Ontario. Huh? Who knew? Incredible place, and well worth the visit. Here's just a taste of what we saw on display. They sure don't make 'em like they used to, but if you have a couple of million to really impress your friends, you've come to the right place...





Sunset on the beach at Grand Bend....


Last stop - the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Marys. I'll bet you didn't know we had one, eh? It's pretty small, but worth the visit. They're actually fundraising now to build a bigger facility, and they're waiting to take your call now. I'll also bet you didn't know that the first recorded baseball game took place nearby in 1838. Learn something every day.

Oh - next stop - Cooperstown this Friday. So in the space of a week, we'll have visited both HOF's. The main difference? No way you can get a parking spot under a shady tree 10 feet from the front door of Cooperstown --- but you sure can in St. Marys, pretty much any time of the day.

Babe Ruth display. Did you know he hit his first professional home run here in Toronto?


Vintage Blue Jays and Expos jerseys...
