Elora village

Today on the long Easter weekend Anita and me made a trip to Elora. Not the one in Maharastra like Ajanta & Elora but the one in Ontario, Canada. Its kinda a difficult to believe but the history of Elora, ON is that one scotsman, Capt William Gilikinson named this town after the Elora caves in India. Another freaky bit of trivia was that the inventor of the Cannon camera was from this town.

The Elora village is a quiet quaint place where home based resturants and craft shops lined the tiny down town area. Missing very conspiciously were the Tim Hortens / Macdonalds.. that sprout everywhere in an urban setting. The weather was much too cold to walk outdoors but short well bundled ventures were doable. Having just recovered from a bout of congestion and cold you can see both of us well layered in the pic on top. The sun being out was not of much help as the wind seemed to blow all the warmth away. The drive to and fro was extremly nice. Miles of rolling farmlands recovering from the melting frost. We saw quite a few "bed & breakfast" joints and had half a mind to drive in and spend the night there ( tomorrow being sunday) but we put it off to later this year.

This summer I plan to go back there -- the camping ground seemed very nice. Maybe that's where we will take everyone for Canada Day.
