There were many highlights today: our Tiki breakfast in the country, being greeted by Dave after getting off the ferry, the Magic Beer Fridge and getting chased by a dog. Out-cycling the dog was a personal victory. I saw the dog running down the driveway, thirsty for blood. I put on a little steam. Then I heard the dog behind me panting. Panting hard. I put on a little more steam. I hope I didn’t give the poor dog a heart attack. No more fear of dogs. Cheetahs perhaps, but not dogs.
The Magic Beer Fridge event occurred upon arrival at my hotel in Owen Sound. After checking in I enquired about a place to get a cold beer. “There’s a Chinese restaurant down the road that’s licensed. But how many do you need?” asked the gentleman behind the counter. “Only a couple. I’d like to celebrate making it this far”. “Oh, in that case for you I have a Magic Beer Fridge. Follow me”. I followed him to the back and picked out a couple of cold ones. You see, people leave beer behind when they leave, and that’s the Magic Beer Fridge.
More later. The Greater Toronto Area, likely Caledon, is my objective today. Time to go.
