Andrea's sister Dee amd her boyfriend Csaba


While in Toronto, we met up again with a friend we had met on tour in Vietnam - Sarah. She had had some exciting adventures too including Antartica and South America on her travels. It wet our appetites for exploring more someday...great fun to see her again.

#2 - Here's a sample of Csaba's cooking - a traditional Hungarian meal - yummy!!!

We ventured into the St Jacob's Farmers Market on Saturday and enjoyed sampling the local foods on offer. Beside the outlet store they had a local craft shop where we found the Mennonite ladies making an exisite hand made quilt. It must have taken them hours. DID YOU KNOW, in this area of Ontario, there are strong Scottish roots as well as Dutch, German and Old Order Mennonite settlements originally from Pennsylvania.

After the market, it was off to the Maple Museum to learn how they tapped maple trees for sap which they reduced down to maple syrup and maple candy.

#15 - a quick dip in Bayfield Beach to cool off...to the gang from Fraser Island, she's still wearing the "itsy bitsy teenie weenie white poka-dot bikini"
