St. Paul's church picnic Sept. 19,2010

Carmen and Wally took me in their car.  It was at Grieff Hill once again which is a lovely spot towards Guelph.  It is owned by the Presbyterian church and is used as a retreat and conference center from what I understand.

We had a little time to kill so we went to Burlington and walked at their lovely waterfront for a few minutes.

My camera was acting up and it said the batteries were low so I changed batteries but still had some trouble.  However, I did manage to get some nice shots of the Burlington Waterfront.

We drove for about an hour after we left Burlington and we passed some interesting places, including a place with dinosaurs.  It was very lovely country side which we passed through.  We passed a sign to Paris which is a place I would like to visit one day as one of my Montreal friends has moved there and I would love to see her.

A fair amount of people turned up at the picnic and brought snacks and food.  It was a very pleasant afternoon spent in good company.  I took some pictures of the games and a few random shots.

We got home about 7:30 I think and all that fresh air has made me sleepy!

The water balloon game - the trick is not to let the balloons break or you get all wet!  Lots of fun to play and lots of fun to watch!
