|Happiness is, being on vacation!|
Friday, Sept. 14th- My work day ended at 3:30pm, and a little spa pampering after work was the perfect start to vacation.

|Me with my little buddy, "Echo", an Eastern Screech Owl.|
Sunday, Sept. 16th- Today we went to visit our foster donkey, Petunia, who is actually a mule. She resides at the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada. We sponsored her last year on our first visit, and want to make sure we get over at least once during the months they are open to visitors. It's a great place to visit. On our way home we stopped at the Aberfoyle Mill for a late lunch/early dinner. One of my favorite restaurants.
|Hanging out with "Petunia"!|
|What a good looking Mule she is!|
Monday, Sept. 17th- Today was a mostly restful day at home after running a few errands, one being me finally trading in my seven year old BlackBerry for a new cell phone.
|I'll be figuring it out for years!|
|Having fun in the Mirror Maze at Fun Zone.|
|Pac Man, always a must for us!|
|First play at the slots after entering the Casino, and this was on the $25 credit from our hotel package!|
Thursday, Sept. 20th- The first part of the day was appointments and grocery shopping. The fun came in the afternoon when we finally went to visit our friend, Michele, at the wild bird seed store she's been working at for a while. We bought a few things at the store, Caledon Mountain Wildlife and then made our way to Michele's for a lovely pizza dinner and longer visit with Michele, and her husband, Mark.

|Michele gave us this awesome picture she did of my sweetie, Molly. What a thoughtful gift!|
Friday, Sept. 21st- Another low key day at home, but the kitties and backyard wildlife are always entertaining.

Saturday, Sept. 22nd- Another day, another road trip! Today we ventured down Port Rowan way to take in the Canadian Raptor Conservancy's Open House. Late lunch, early dinner was at the Country Fork in Port Rowan, it's worth the drive from Toronto! We went for a walk around the Port Rowan Wetlands before heading home, and I finally found a Monarch Caterpillar!
|We enjoyed the Open House, educational and entertaining.|

It was a grand vacation! Can't wait for the next one!
