r S ub m it y o ut o o ! t rave l st o r y OUR MINI VACATION TO THE BRUCE PENINSULA Active. Attractive. A!ordable. Everything you need in a retirement community! – Story & photo submitted by reader Barbara Weiler, Waterloo, ON. (edited for space) We have always enjoyed road trips, but find that three or four days are enough for us now. We drove from our home in Waterloo to Tobermory on the Bruce Peninsula, which we discovered has developed into a bustling tourist destination. We returned to Lions Head halfway down the peninsula for a quieter stay at Taylor Made Bed and Breakfast and a lovely evening walk on the beach and the Bruce Trail. After an excellent breakfast we drove through Sauble Beach to Southampton. The community beach there is lovely and we were able to find a shady bench overlooking the water to enjoy a picnic lunch. After a stroll beach-side through the newly established butterfly gardens, we headed for the Bruce County Museum. What a wonderful place to discover in a small town! This museum is amazing, following the development of the Bruce through history. We moved on to Port Elgin where we checked into the Silken Retreat B&B. This was a return visit as we had before experienced the ambience owner Priscilla had created in this century-old home, with such hospitality and attention to detail. The gardens there are well tended and provided a serene place to relax after a gourmet meal Silken Retreat B&B, Port Elgin at the Woodpecker restaurant. Much of the next day was spent in family pursuits, and late in the afternoon we checked in at the Benmiller Inn near Goderich. This Inn was created from an old woollen mill about 1970, using the timber and barn boards from three different barns. The stairs were a bit challenging, and the massive doors on the bedrooms made me think I might actually be in Hogwarts – Harry Potter’s school. We enjoyed a flavourful dinner by the window overlooking the mill stream, and a walk around the extensive property. After a stroll along the nearby Harbour we were ready to return home – a peaceful drive on a sunny day through the flourishing farm land of South Western Ontario. We felt truly blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the country. • Retire in Miramichi N E W B R U N S W I C K Retirement Miramichi offers a wide variety of rental homes with a size and style to suit your budget and lifestyle.
