Nothing special on this post. Just made a choice to fuel up and head out of town.
Finally I can drive and feel my fingers. I realized that I had been driving with all my jacket vents open. No wonder I was so effin cold before..lol

... we reach Trenton. From there we plan to cross the Bay of Quint to the Thousand Islands where we will cross to the American side and visit Clayton, New York, a ninety mile leg that we will probably break in two.
By the way, we've meandered over 500 miles by today!

The upper chamber is filled with a foot more water than the lower in order for it to go down and lift the other. We entered the Peterborough lock at the top. We were the first boat in so we had a front ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ste. Anne's Spa Grafton
I recently visited Ste. Anne's in May of 2005. This is my second visit. Ste. Anne's is a lovely, relaxing Inn. I find it special beacause it is a Country Inn with the spa as the focus. All of the spa staff are very professional, knowledgeable and go that extra mile to make your spa treatment extrordinary. The menu for every meal is varied, interesting and of course delicious. The fittness staff are also wonderful and very informative. Ste. Anne's has been renovated since my first visit and I was happy to see that they maintained the beauty of their Country Inn atmosphere while providing extra guest rooms a larger waiting area, gift shop and reception area. Ste. Anne's want to be sure that you are happy with everything about your visit and go out of their way to make you comfortable.
My sister was lucky enough to have a tour of Ste. Anne in Grafton about 1 year ago and was quite impressed. So needless to say she and I booked a overnight trip last April. Sarah, was who my sister dealt with for our booking was absolutely wonderful. She arranged all our treatment and class times and our general agenda for the 2 days we were going to be there. Two days before our arrival we each got a phone call from Jeannette to make sure we bring our swimsuits, wine if we wanted and were looking forward to meeting us!!
Ste. Annes is perfect for de-stressing. I've stayed at Ste. Annes for many overnight stays as well as several day-spas over the past 6 years.
I had the best pedicure at Ste Anne's and the mud moor bath is a must to try. Their spa services are excellent! I also tried a couple of exercise classes which were quite good. The lymphatic massage was great. The package I had included meals and afternoon tea. It's a nice package but I only used 1 afternoon tea and I stayed at one of the cottages so they delivered a morning snack and I didn't try the breakfast. You can get quite full with the all inclusive meals but it's nice to have choices. Booking was excellent; the person offered me a nice package. Checking in was nice because they have a person attend to your check in and they take you to your room, after showing you around and giving some history, with explanations of their services. Check out was kind of chaotic as they were busy and something went wrong with my bill but I waited and came back at which point they said the computer was still down so I asked for a written bill and the lady was kind of miffed. The atmosphere in the main inn could be calmer and more spa-like but I don't know if maybe it was extra busy or that's just the way it is. I saw a lot of stressed out women and I found it hard to relax even when I got back to my cottage. Otherwise, I highly recommend Ste Anne's as a nice country retreat with beautiful Ontario scenery and, in general, a nice atmosphere with excellent spa services at reasonable prices.
When I received a gift certificate from my sister three years ago for a day at the spa, I thought it would be nice to make it a weekend away, so off I went with a girlfriend of mine, not knowing what a treat we would be in for, the spa was out of this world ,I have never experienced such inner peace and calmness before. I had the most wonderful experience, the spa treatments were excellent, the staff proffessional, the food was superb, best of all I loved the afternoon tea it was a real treat. I have since taken my husband back for the weekend, he's not a spa kind of guy but he commented on the tranquility and relaxed atmosphere. I plan on surprising my daughter for her 16th birthday this year with a trip to St Anne's, my overall descriiption of this spa 'A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH'
I can't wait for my next trip back to St. Anne's. I have gone many times - at different times of year. Some with my girlfriend/s & once with my husband.
My wife and I along with our three teenage daughters visited Ste. Anne's during the March Break 2005. The entire experience was superb, from the very friendly Sara H. who took our reservation and provided an extremely thorough list of our spa treatments and accommodations via e-mail to the sad time when we had to depart.
An Amazing getaway
Just returned from my first overnight getaway at St. Anne's Country Inn & Spa in Grafton Ontario Canada. It was amazing-from the first greeting to the last goodbye the level of service exceeded my expectations and the total experience was truly peaceful and wonderful. The spa services were relaxing and professional, the dining room choices and quality of food were superb and our accomodation was lovely. We stayed in The Doll's house a adorable cottage close to the main spa property with a complete kitchen, 2 bedrooms and two baths plus two living spaces. I can't wait to return and have told everyone about this fabulous retreat.
I just returned from an overnight at St Anne's Spa. This was my second visit. This time I managed to convince my (very macho..."I am not the spa kind of guy") boyfriend to come along. St Anne's lived up to its excellent reputation and my once "I'm not a spa kind of guy" is now eagerly talking about our next visit and what treatments he should have.
Unbelievable destination spa and resort
I recently had the opportunity to spend 5 days and 4 nights at the Haldimand Hills Spa and Resort located in Grafton, Ontario Canada located approximately 1 hour east of Toronto. I was looking for some rest, relaxation and pampering and did I ever find it at Haldimand Hills! This is one of Canada's best destination spas; from the deliciously prepared three meals offered daily, to the Aveda spa treatments done by trained professionals. All staff members unbelievably friendly. Haldimand Hills is situated on 520 acres and guests can meander along the marked trails themselves or take guided morning tours. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to treat themselves for a few days.
