Andy’s sister Elaine joined us on January 26th  for three weeks- we had hoped to go to the Bahamas, but Mother nature didn’t cooperate so we ended up going down the Keys and then  up to Fort Myers and across Lake Okeechobee on the rim route.  Elaine flew back to Canada on February 16th.

    Can’t wait to see you here in the Sound. Wouldn’t mind watching you go over the marine railway on the Trent Canal. If you can, let me know when you will be there. It is about a 2.5 hour drive from Owen Sound.
