Ontario, Canada
5th June

Today Scott, Janine and Alexander decided to take me for a visit to Fergus and Elora which is just a two hour round trip with stops on the way. Fergus is where the large Highland Games takes place each year.

We progress through rolling farm land

Hey! Horses!  We arrive at Fergus

Highland Avenue

And we've now arrived at Elora

And here is from left to right Janine, Alexander and Scott :-)

And a British Pub!

And the menu shows British breakfast, ploughmans lunch, guiness steak pie and lots of other goodies

This is Alexander modeling my Electric Scotland baseball cap! :-)

Must be losing weight... looking far too thin! :-)

And caught in the act!

We then had some burgers from the BBQ for our supper...

And as well as cooking we get to play with the dog :-) And here we are ready to eat!
