Hi Everyone! I’m on a working road trip with Chuck in Canada. This is my first trip to Canada and though we have both been working we have had a great time as we drive across the from Toronto to Lake Huron. I’ve been in Paris and London on the trip had some fantastic food. Here im on the outside patio of KANU a wonderful resturant in the town of Paris. This is the Grand River behind me…it was a beautiful place. I had spent the day in the hotel room writing on my 1800 novella and had written about 3000 words so I was tired, (Chuck had spent the day working with his clients and they suggested KANU) It was a wonderful place to reward ourselves after a long day (but a very productive day! I loved getting all those words written
We chose the pot pie and love it.(on reason being that we’d already had several meals consisting of rotissarie chicken, a specialty of Canadians and I was ready to try it in a different way!) It wasn’t traditional Texas chicken pot pie and we enjoyed experiencing the difference. And isn’t it beautiful the salad and vegetables were all locally grown and so fresh. Just as great place with an awesome view.
We left Paris and headed to London the next day and I found my latest book HER HOMECOMING COWBOY on the shelves. SO cool to see my book in Canada. Of course I knew it was there I just enjoyed seeing it on the shelves and the fact that it along with most of the Love Inspired books was very nearly sold out. As we moved along to Chuck’s next stop we were on the coast of the great lake. Lake Huron. And as I am with each great lake that I see I’m amazed by the vastness of the lake. Its like standing on the shore of the ocean. Even the town of Grand Bend where we were was like a beach town. It was nice to see and we enjoyed it though it was raining when we got there and raining when we left.
We drove down to Godrich, considered by the signs and brochures that it was the prettiest town in Canada. It had been hit by a tornado last year that totally startled the town. Unlike Texans us other tornado states they didn’t know what to think as this funnel came at them across the water. It did a lot of damage to to beautiful town but they were rebuilding and from what we saw they were doing great. We saw many beautiful towns, as we were driving. We ate our last meal in the area at Eddingtons. A beautiful restuarant in a 1800′s era home. The atmosphere was wonderful the waiter and waitress so friendly and the food, goodness, just look at it. Isn’t that beautiful? This is Lake Perch and local fresh vegetables and I had French Onion soup that was to die for okay so a tidbit…I love French Onion soup about as much as I love Cheese Cake! But it was my night to try Canada’s Lake Perch, on a bed of local vegetables and sweet potato fries. It was so pretty when they brought it out and tasted just as wonderful as it looks!
All in all this for both of us this has been a very productive trip for both of us with work and sightseeing. I hope you’ve enjoyed a little of our Canadian road trip
