And To Think I Saw It...Oct 11 - Oct 17

Last weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving so there will be lots of autumn and turkey photos.

John worked a few days.

Sunday John and I attended the National Geographic travel photography seminar. It went from 8:30 to 4:00 with lunch included. It was very good but a long day. From there we headed to Mississauga for our second Thanksgiving with family.




The seminar was held at Victoria College and I had time at lunch to wander outside with my camera.

More photos of the lovely buildings here.







BON APPETIT

We were invited to two family dinners - one with my sister's partner's family and one with my cousin's family. My niece and nephew were at both.





Monday I cooked a Thanksgiving dinner for the two of us. We both love turkey and enjoy the leftovers.





We had dinner out on Tuesday at the Brogue Inn in Port Credit with friends. Three of us had the steak sandwich and it was delicious.



Wednesday was Monday's leftovers.

Thursday I made curried chicken with chicken thighs, coconut milk and added kale.





We were invited to John and Margaret's for dinner, three doors down from where we used to live. Lots of laughs and great food.

TRAVEL
I made a video last week of our winter travels for 2013-2014 and created some collages to capture some of the many things we did and saw.  This is some of the art we saw in Mazatlan during the January and February Art Walk.

  3. A very busy week. Black Creek, it's a place I haven't been to in years, but I'd like to see it again.
