Day 16, 17, 18 A weekend away in Owen Sound!

 Day 16, 17, 18 A weekend away!
We were lucky enough to get a few days away to visit with some amazing friends in Owen Sound.  Just a scenic two hour drive through lots of southern Ontario small towns and villages on our way north.  Our friends live in an old Church that is a home and an art studio just a little bit out of the city. 
Friday was a challenge getting my 30 minutes in but when all else fails I just start marching around the room before hoping into bed.  
Saturday we followed tradition and went for breakfast at the Downtown market.  It is a small market but as you can see it is busy and bountiful!

Saturday was a very rainy day... I am never a huge fan of getting soaking wet... but with the help of a few umbrellas we did our walk30 on the Bruce Trail that runs right next door to our friend's little church. 
Here is a little information about the trail from www.ontariotrails.on.ca

The Bruce Trail is the oldest and longest marked hiking trail in Canada. It is 840 km long, with over 440 km of side trails. Every year more than 400,000 visits are made to the Trail as people walk, snowshoe, watch wildlife, take photographs and admire the glorious scenery of the Escarpment.
We were walking on one of the easier stretches of the Bruce but if you like hiking I highly recommend this trail ... it will keep you busy all year.
I have been out waking already today but an evening walk is still in the works ... hope you had a great Walk30!
Walk On Strong,
