One day in August, Frank and I were feeling a bit bored.
Not all mopey bored like Benny seemed to be in this pic, but we had itchy feet and decided to take a day trip to the nearby town of Uxbridge.
It's a lovely little town. We soon parked and began exploring.
No matter the time or place, we all feel the same way about our splendid millitary men and women.
The Uxbridge train runs 90 minute round trip excursions to and from the town of Stouffville. They have special themes trips for Halloween, Christmas, Armed Forces Day, or just to experience the autumn colours through the windows of their vintage trains.
On our way to the pub for lunch, I got a kick out of seeing this wonderful, old Roxy theatre.
From our booth at the pub, this perspective from the bar caught my eye.
Another eye-catcher, these pretty purple blooms seen while out for a stroll by the waterfront.
Bullrushes were swaying gently along the shoreline.
This sheltered picnic area offered a nice view of the pond.
Heading back toward the car, we passed a store window where this parasol wreath made a colourful subject.
Back home again, Benny's boredom took full hold. I believe he was napping the whole time.
