The Briars, Jackson's Point, ON

Amanda, Angie, Jen and Pat and I have gone away for the weekend for the last celebration of Angie's 40th birthday.

We are staying at the Briars, about 90 minutes north of Toronto.


Here's where we are staying. We usually come up every year in the winter so it's nice to see what it looks like in the summer. It's gorgeous!

Jen and I did a cruise around the Point with Captain Brian. We liked it so much that we didn't get off the boat and we did it again!

Here's the view from my deck:

Jen, Amanda, Pat and Angie

Angie gave us all gifts ... mine is a magnet that says "It's all about me".

Here we are at supper ...

Me, Jen, Angie, Amanda and Pat

There is a DJ who spins the tunes every Saturday night in the dining room. He's about 100 years old! The dining room was really quiet tonight and the tunes were lame so we headed out of there early.


There was a small beach just below us.

I had thought about going swimming yesterday afternoon. The air and the water were warm. But I ended up sitting on the deck having a cocktail instead.

Angie and Pat went swimming this morning.

I was already packed and didn't feel like digging out my bathing suit, showering afterwards, etc.

Despite the grey sky, they said the water was nice.

Amanda didn't feel like going in either.

sitting on the deck with a cocktail seems good enough to me!
