"Why we did this..." Wiarton by Sibbella

Not quite sure....

A friend and I decided that in the middle of a Canadian winter we would head to Wiarton just for the "hey".

Was it cold? YES!! Was there snow YES!!

Wiarton is home to Wiarton Willie, Ontario's own forecasting groundhog. Every February 2nd Wiarton Willie makes a brief apperance telling us whether or not we are going to have 6 more weeks of winter or an early spring.

Did the groundhog decide to see his shadow that February day? No of course not! 6 more weeks of winter that year!

But it was a fun ride...we started at the bottom of Highway 10 in Mississauga, and took it right to the end in Owen Sound. Then we decided to venture off to Wiarton and Tobermory .

There is nothing to do that time of year, but in the summer it is packed with the cottage goers.

Wee little church.

This tiny little church was in the middle of now where on Hwy 6. Cute as a button it is, but I'm guessing that they don't have regular services!
