Trip to Chesterville, Alexandria, Apple Hill

Yes, we left at 9:30 a.m., and arrived home by 7 p.m.,

Chesterville to donate items to the museum, visit the LCBO (where JB worked in the 70s), and visit the war memorial (93 km, 75 minutes)
Alexandria for lunch, see below. (40 minutes, 54 km).
Apple Hill for the Bee Meadow Fundraiser (20km, 20 minutes).
I shall try to post these a few at a time! It was a grand day, with lots of things to view there and back.

There were a few worrisome events: the car passing us on the right in the gravel, as we turned left; the cyclists crowding the traffic lane; the motorbike who pulled out in front of us.

My pet peeve, cyclists clogging the roads.

Alexandria for lunch: Georgian House Gourmet Cuisine

It was wonderful. I had venison, hubby had a dairy-free, yeast-free, beef wrap! An amazing setting, under big trees. Our server is also from Chesterville, where hubby spent his early years.

Very French town, with its proximity to the Quebec border.

Vulnerable Road Users 

Vulnerable Road Users, include young people on motorcycles! We watching him carefully, as he pulled out in front of us, as we were driving. He hugged the centre line, then tried to pass a car on an uphill, while the car was turning right into a driveway.

That's a full day of an outing. You have to give us cyclists a break. I know I'll catch it for this comment. The law puts everybody in a corner on this one.

Cute bear. I always hate to see motorcyclists riding between cars on the freeway. - Margy
