All-the-while, a lovely young lady played celtic music for us on her harp, and Hors D'oeuvres were served to warm our guest's tummies. We shared a large "Schwarzwalde Kuchen" and champagne, and snapped casual photos on the flagstone patio at the back of the Inn. Soon though, with the cool October air nipping at our heels and the sun falling across the river, we re-gathered into the cozy English pub, where good hugs and laughter abounded and stories were told
Joyously happy, we drove into the country to a pleasant Victorian era inn. A late supper served in a lush private dining room, followed by an evening stroll together, nicely ended our day of celebration, and while stars twinkled in the clear sky outside, we snuggled under the covers surrounded by lilac, lace, and angels! (Hah! Ask us sometime about our bridal suite... ! :>)
The next day was gloriously warm - for October - and we spent a few pleasant hours walking about Greenfield Village, enjoying the trains and carriages, and visiting with the horses, geese and ducks there. See www.hfmgv.org After a hearty early-American meal (and ale, of course) in the Eagle Tavern, we set off for the International Bridge, and headed into southern Ontario, Canada.
Though we had each visited our Canadian neighbors many times, neither of us had realized that there are wineries aplenty there, along the north coast of Lake Erie - the most southern area of Canada! (check it out on a map) We spent several pleasant days, driving along the coast, visiting wineries, nature parks, villages and marinas. In Leamington, at the Seacliffe Inn, we had the best fish dinner I've ever had! We look forward to returning there (and collecting a few more bottles of good wine)! It will be delightful to travel along the coast again in the summertime with our little sportscar's top down. No matter where we wandered to, the townspeople were very friendly, the highways well-marked and maintained, and the hotels charming. And, at the end of a perfect honeymoon, we enjoyed the colors of Autumn as we drove back to the West, crossed over Lake St. Clair into Michigan...and headed home.
