However, after covering the owner's two-week vacation at the store, I was fortunate enough to score an entire weekend off work - woohoo!!
What better way to spend a long weekend, than sitting in the sun on a dock in cottage country?!
Amazing how different two areas of Ontario can be. In one area, I was looking at horses and cows out the passenger window, and 2 hours later I was back in Toronto with all of the smog, cars and tall buildings.
