Day 54 - 31 July, 2011 - Orangeville, Ontario to Port Perry, Ontario

This morning we woke up to overcast skies, 22 degrees but humid.  I left Orangeville  (where I was born) at 8:15 a.m. and headed eastbound on Highway 9.  I ran into Bev and Martin, who were having a break.  They are looking foward to staying in Aurora with family.  When I came to the Holland Marsh area it felt so familiar.  I did alot of TTCI work in these parts through the 7 years we were in Orillia.  At 10:03 a.m. I crossed over the mighty Hwy 400.  It was raining lightly now.  Traffic was really picking up as I headed to Newmarket.  At the Upper Canada Mall, I turned South on to Yonge Street (Cty Rd 1).  Used to love to shop there and Sears was having warehouse sale!!! As I cruised through Aurora, admiring all the beautiful flowers, it is raining steadily and I am getting a little soggy.  Eventually arrived at Bloomington Road where I turned left (also known as County Road 40).  It stopped raining and the sun broke through.  In a town called Goodwood, I turned on to Hwy 21 still heading East.  Such beautiful rolling farms, corn fields, hay fields and fresh produce roadside stands.  After the turn off for Uxbridge, the road was a poor condition.  Arrived in Port Perry at 1:15 p.m.  Brian golfed at Sunnybrae Golf Course, while Sassy and I had a nap!  Total km 110.
