A day...for sanity


Jack and I quite often take a day and just skip town (we call it a 'sanity' day). We started doing that when the kids were both in school, just to get away from normal everyday 'stuff'. Today we took at drive down to Cobourg, which is on Lake Ontario. It's a lovely place with lots of beautiful old houses and a lovely beach. We walked along the waterfront and out onto this breakwater. That's Lake Ontario! The other picture shows some of the sailboats that were in the small harbor.

We had a wonderful, peaceful and scenic day and can't wait for the next one!

We do this too. Sometimes it consists of me looking up houses for sale in far away towns on acreages and then we go in search of them to see if they are as good in reality as they look on the computer. Gets us out, gets us map reading or GPS lost, and clears our brains.

Looks like the weatherman knew you were coming and didn't let those little drops come down. Glad you had a great sanity day - I guess you both needed it(?)
