We are in Leamington Ontario visiting Dave’s family. We had a busy, fun Canada Day. I started the morning with a walk down to Lake Erie with my sister-in-law Shirley. We are staying with Dave’s brother Paul and my sister-in-law Shirley, who made us a lovely dinner our first night here.

There was a band playing, short speeches by dignitaries, lots of great food and a chance to visit with friends and relatives. Several of Dave’s aunts were there too and we met a number of Dave’s highschool friends whose parents are also residents of the home.Then we were off to the Erie Shores Golf and Country Club where Dave’s brother Paul is a member for a round of golf.
