We met up with our friends Paul and T, brother Bill and Jan from Illinois on Friday. This is the first leg of their 21 day journey to New Brunswick and the Easter seaboard. We’re tagging along with them to Montreal in their 35 foot motor home (the rock star bus). Bill and Jan have a 38 foot fifth wheel!
We had dinner down town at the Bier Markt a very nice gastro-pub down on Toronto’s Esplanade. I had a very nice, but pricey roasted beet salad, made of both golden and red beets, with a mixture of goats cheese and blue cheese fritter balls. Paul ordered a home made sausage appetizer sampler that looked amazing. T had asparagus and scallops.

Overall rating (in my opinion): Decor 4/5, service 3.5/5, food 4/5, Value 2.5/5, Noise: 3/5 (1 being very noisy, and 5 being very quiet).

Last minute, we got a wonderful invite to Rae and Mon’s for a drink on our way to the trailer park! We loved the idea and stopped by!

We stayed overnight in a campground just east of the city, hoping it will give us a head start to our trip to Montreal. It kinda / sorta did. There are always issues, and hiccups, this morning (day) was no different.

What normally is a five hour trip, will likely be nine. We have reservations in the old town this evening for dinner.
