The Birthday Finale

The finale (surely the finale) to Sue's birthday celebrations took place on April 1 when we met Heather (Sue's sister) and Brian at Wheeler's Maple Syrup Camp and Pancake House.

It is out in the country, about a 45' drive from our place and about 2 hours from their cottage, so we thought to meet up for a few hours.

Part of the dining room, empty after the lunch hour crowd had moved on.

The sisters always enjoy each other's company.

Our server stuck a candle in a special pancake.
They gifted Sue with a nice, funky bit of bling.
Afterwards, as always, we toured around: maple syrup on the boil.
Brian in the museum
A small bit of the Chainsaw Museum: nothing but chainsaws.

We walked the trail: lots of rock on the Canadian Shield


Heather horsing around
Finally, we sat by the huge picnic table, not in a hurry to take our parting.
It was a great meetup: must do it again sometime.

It was a good visit! Nice set of pics, John. I was working on a pic of the guy cleaning the boiler too. Will post in BW today. Your chainsaw museum photo is excellent! White balance is much better than my image. I may try to fix mine up a bit (with Heather's colour vision assist). Funny that it's obvious to me (even without my magic glasses).

Chainsaws? Nothing but chainsaws? I don't think I even know somebody who owns one chainsaw.

What a wonderful way to spend your birthday Sue, with your hubby, sister and BIL pancakes, maple syrup, and the beautiful outdoors. Happy for you, xx

It's quite the place, isn't it? When we took the grandies, it was PACKED!
I love the bling.

Lorna said...

As always, great to read and great to look at. Not so good at staving off jealousy of bling or hunger for pancakes, but thanks anyways.

I love the picture of the two women walking away from the camera. And the building that is the restaurant is beautiful.

Lucky Sue that she has a devoted husband, sister and month long birthday celebration!

My husband, me, my grandson and daughter-in-law all have the same birthday month so the month is never entirely mine. :- )
