A new friend and Princess Point

I had the pleasure of meeting a Chinese lady who is here only one month.  She and I sat beside each other at the Harvest Dinner at St. John's and we hit it off right away.  She also is a writer and we had that in common. Her English is limited but we managed.

The Harvest Dinner was hugely successful and the food was fantastic as always.  There were a good number of people there.  The tickets were $15.00 per person but well worth it.

Dinner started off with delicious chicken soup (home made) and a bun, then two cabbage rolls with sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and gravy.  All these are made by the Lutheran Women's group (LW) group.  There was a special treat in store for the folk for desert!.  I cannot remember the name of it but it is whipped cream in a type of pastry and cooked strawberries in syrup on the side.  Coffee pots were placed on each table as well.  .

There was such a good portion that I was able to take half of it home for lunch tomorrow..

After the lovely event, we took the bus to Princess Point. I had my camera fortunately and took some nice shots.  Some of the trees are beginning to turn.

Lots of people were on the trail today.  We came across a lady with three huge dogs and they were not on a leash.  My friend got a little nervous because she was just coming up from the water from a very narrow opening, and the three huge dogs were bounding down towards her. I certainly could understand that as they were huge and she did not know them.  Fortunately, the lady came and then we all chatted for a short while and the dogs got acquainted with us.

We also met a young couple who were sitting on the new spot which the RBG has carved out and we started to chat.  Eventually, the lady and I exchanged business cards.  She is from the Montreal area and we have some things in common. It was so lovely to meet both of them. The gentleman took our picture together with her phone so I will be glad to see it.

It certainly has been a day for meeting nice people!

Have a good evening and come back when you have the time.
