road trip!

I've been a bit capital-s-swamped lately so we decided that a road trip might be in order. Saturday's beautiful sunny weather was just perfect for a little day trip, so bright and early we hopped in the car and headed for the border.

Living in Ottawa, Montreal was always the nearest getaway, but now that we live here we live closer to so many other interesting places! Like Burlington, closer to our house than Ottawa, if you don't count the horrific wait at the border to clear customs.

We snacked on dumplings (SO good), had local pints at the Church Street Tavern, took an itty-bitty ferry and really just enjoyed spending a day without a timeline and a list of things to accomplish.
