The actual drive to the border was nothing, two hours. We were in Canda (yes I know) before we knew it! Bravie was able to see why I didn't think we needed to bring a portable potty for her, there were trees everywhere. No deserts to be seen. *snort*
Here's some pics of the cottage. I just loved the area, reminded me lots of our cabin on the lake in the UP.
I think Bravie is pointing out a polar bear or something. *rolls eyes* She's not real good naming animals.
Bravie and Lightsy did make me a lemon meringue pie for my birthday and it was wonderful. *smooch*
What did we eat.... oh duh! Saturday night we did a raclette (sp?) for dinner. Was tons of fun! While Bravie and Lightsy made the pie, I cut up chicken, veggies and some yummy cheese for us to use on the raclette. (Bravie and Lightsy cut up some stuff too. *grin*) The raqlette was basically a fondue styled grill. The grill sat in the middle of the table and you just threw whatever you wanted to eat on. It also had these little trays on the bottom that you could make cheesy garlic bread, or melt cheese and stuff on your cut up baked potato. It was lots of fun!
After dinner a couple friends of Lightsy's and Dusterboy's came out and visited with us. They were very very nice. I sure hope we didn't embarrass Lightsy. *grin* We tried to be on our best behaviour while the company was there.
The drive home on Sunday was full of football. Yes football. I have Sirius. We listened to both of our games.
Monday I had to take Bravie back to the airport. *pout* Before I did though, I showed her Lake Michigan and around my little town. *grin* I tried to tell her before I was a hick.
If asked to, I would drive up there again in a heartbeat. Lightsy was too wonderful not too go back to. I love her. *sobs*
Oh and Lightsy? did I mention that BF has a good friend of his in Barrie? They go hunting together all the time.
