Royal Botanical Garden - Burlington, ON

The last time we were at the Royal Botanical Garden was in 2010. It is definitely time for another visit.A lovely afternoon spent with these greenery and flowers.



At the Rock Garden, most likely inspired by Claude Monet.

Art never expresses anything but itself.

Gananoque and Kingston : Buildings

If I had money, I would like to get an old building, 
have music performances, 
do lithographs, have shows of paintings, 
and do those things that I'm interested in doing.

Gananoque and Kingston with Friends

The group finally convened at Gananoque. First thing we needed to do was to be inside an LCBO store before it closes (or else the driver will be in a bad, bad mood).


We wanted to  have dinner at the Casino, hoping for cheaper prices and variety of choices. Unfortunately, the waiting time was 30-45 minutes as we were not patrons. Ended up having dinner at Cousins on King Bar and Grill. Continued chatting after dinner at the hotel.

Before we left for Toronto via Kingston we spent some time strolling Gananoque's Main Street.

Along Gananoque's Waterfront Trail.


Missing 2 American friends here.


Not sure if this was before or after they had ice-cream.

Last minute fun.


Lunch at Sima Sushi. Delicious food, good service, affordable prices. 
Highly recommended.

Weekend is over, time to go back home.
At Port Hope had tea and some sweets at Dreamers Cafe.
