Our final full day in Canada was in Bruce County. After Breakfast, we went for a walk around Port Elgin. There are buildings dating from the late 19th Century

Following the walk we took the car to head down Highway 21, stopping off at the Bruce Power visitor centre, before continuing onto Kincardine for lunch. After lunch we headed inland on Highway 9 through Greenock towards Walkerton. A few kilometres west of Walkerton, we headed north towards Paisley and then towards the lake shore at Southampton.

We headed to the Southampton flag, getting views of Chantry Island.

Nearby was a garden were we saw butterflies, reminding us of our visit to the Butterfly Conservatory a week earlier.

And so, we joined a friend for an evening meal and our final full in Ontario came to an end.
