Great Lakes Day 13: Canada Day in Fenelon Falls

July 1, 2016

Celeste and Laura making cookies

Today is Canada Day, and the second time we have celebrated it in Fenelon Falls. This time, however, it is stormy — the first really stormy day of the trip.

It was a good day to stay in and read. A rainy day is a real treat for us Californians with our dry summers. Kenna and Celeste went along on a trip to a nearby Mennonite bakery, where they bought yummy-looking cinnamon rolls for tomorrow’s breakfast and strawberry-rhubarb pie for tonight. Celeste and cousin Laura also made chocolate cookies, as if we need more delicious food to eat.

We went over to one of the neighbors’ cottages for an informal party, then had dinner with the extended family. Although the rain had stopped, the town fireworks show was unfortunately postponed because it was too windy. So back to the neighbors for another party. The people of Fenelon Falls are so welcoming.
