Our vacation is drawing to a close. Today we crossed back into Ontario, and into the eastern time zone, as well, both in the rain. Dr Fox declined to have his picture taken in a heavy drizzle, but agreed to a shot through the front window of the Yaris.
It was a good-coffee day today. When we went out for supper last night in Morden, I noticed a cafe called Coffee Culture. This morning when we left the motel, we stopped by the cafe so I could have my first latte in three weeks. Turns out they do some great breakfast sandwiches. The latte expanded to two asiago bacon-egg-cheddar ciabattas, a cinnamon scone, a chocolate croissant and a strudel. Yummy!
We didn’t see any signs for Crater Lake (or possibly Meteor Lake) before we crossed from Manitoba into Ontario, so of course we didn’t go to see it. Given the drizzly day, it’s probably just as well. Another time. We’re beginning to realize that we may have to go back out west again.
When we were ready for lunch, we found a little restaurant called the Comfort Table Bakery in Vermillion Bay. The same location is also the Middle of Nowhere Coffee Roastery, and their house blend was delicious. Also, when I ordered, they asked me how strong I wanted the coffee and made it to my request. Their meat pie was just a bit peppery, delicious and satisfying, and David said his burger was really good.
Dani, the staff member running the till, agreed to let Dr Fox have his picture taken with a bag of coffee and one of biscotti.
We crossed into the Eastern time zone and set our clock ahead one hour. We arrived at our hotel in good time to get a long night’s sleep before the final leg of our journey. Tomorrow we return to Wharncliffe after three weeks away. Our chickens and koi have been well cared for by Cassidy and Lily, and Sky and Pharaoh are in the capable hands of Pam at Kennel by the Creek.
It’s hard to believe, but Dr Fox ends his travels tomorrow.
