Last Day of Winter

Tin Bunny

Last Saturday was, in theory, the last day of Winter. I was blindfolded and forced by the boy to pick a spot on the map of Southwestern Ontario to determine where we were going that day and my finger fell on the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park. (It didn’t really happen that way but imagine how cool it would be if it did!)

The park was located near the town of Erin. We had lunch just outsite Erin and then made a stop in downtown Erin to check out a couple of bookstores and bought some chocolatey goodness before hitting the road again. There wasn’t really any sign on the main road leading to the park, so naturally, we got lost. We ended up in Belfountain Conservation Area, which would be an okayish place to get lost in if only it wasn’t wintertime.

To cut a long story short, we finally made it to the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park, and once again, it would be a great place to explore if only it wasn’t wintertime. There is supposed to be at least a river and a lake there, but we couldn’t see where the river or the lake was because most of the ground was covered with snow! We didn’t walk very far into the park because it was so windy and so freezing cold. I really can’t wait to go back there in the summer.

On our way back, we made a stop in a small antique shop in Alton, where I took some mirror photos, before heading towards home. We had supper in a Vietnamese restaurant in Guelph and didn’t leave the city until we checked out every single Blockbusters and Rogers Videos we could find.

When we got home, the apartment felt so insanely warm, which isn’t unusual. We changed into our jammies and spent the night watching Maria Full of Grace and Elephant — both are depressing movies — and went to bed after Saturday Night Live where Ashton Kutcher was hosting and his girlfriend Demi Moore showed up as an old lady.
