At least once every 15 years we should do this.
The view from our balcony. Yes, our room had a balcony!
Our room is the balcony under the closest dormer window. This was taken from the road. This is Gledhill House, named after the owner of the house, who had been the last owner of...
The Woollen Mill, where the dining room is located:
This is the little scoop of sherbet (I think that's what she called it) which was brought to us for "In between." Did you know there was a part between the Appetizer and the Entree called In Between? I rarely eat anything called Entree. So Elegant.And I'd just like to repeat here that Jethro hopes I never lose my wide eyed wonder at these fancy things. I would hate to ever get used to this stuff.
The lobby at the Woollen Mill: It's decorated with its own parts; the spools, the pulleys, all the old bits of machinery.
The Maitland River, which used to power the two mills in the town of Benmiller (which are both now part of the Inn, keeping the town from becoming a ghost town.)
Check out the size of this bed!
Here's the beach at Bayfield:
Toes in the sand!
This is the bank of land between the beach and the town.
It was hazy that day, and the sunset wasn't as spectacular as I've seen there before. However, it's gotta be a pretty crappy day to have a substandard sunset up there!Did you know you can see the sunset twice? We've done it, years ago. I can't remember how it works anymore; I think if you're in Goderich at a certain time and then leave, drive south to Bayfield, you can catch it again. We didn't do that. We were ignoring any kind of time constraints.
That weekend together was one of the best anniversary presents I've ever gotten. Just as good as the locking doorknob he got me for our twelfth!
