The Weekend at the Bradley Cottage

Not sure what to do about the weak internet connection except live with it.  I'd like to post of few pictures of Canada but so far have not been successful.  Maybe we'll get into Tobermory later today and I can try out the internet connection at the library- but it is doubtful. 

Saturday and Sunday we spent out at the 'Bradley Cottage on the Rocks' w.hich is the place Meghan's grandmother built years ago.  It was Meghan's favorite place in all the world and the choice for where she and Adam where to have their public wedding.  But that was not to be.  Instead we kept the date and planned on getting together with her family and Adam and her friends. 

Many of them were able to make it and some from far away places.  Meghan's grandmother, mom and dad (Bill and Marg) and aunt and uncle (Chuck and June) were there.  On Saturday brother Brad and fiance Chris arrived.  Later they were there along with:  Melanie, Chad (from Korea), Kyle, Stephanie, Asia, Gordy (from Bolivia, or Columbia?).  On Sunday afternoon Jordan and Peter made the drive from Toronto.

It was a fun time to 'hang out'.  We spent a lot of time with Bill, Marg, Chuck and June while the 'kids' were doing the same.  On Sunday, they went to the lighthouse in Tobermory and jumped in the c-o-l-d waters of Lake Huron.  Later in the day with Peter and Jordan, Adam and Kelly took canoes out in the waters near the cottage. 

Bill and Marg's neighbors lent their cottage for the week so it has been a great place to put up everybody from out of town.  We are about 5 miles down the road in Tobermory Village Campground which is working out well.

Late Saturday and early on Sunday I was able to get some online work done, so that is helping.  I managed to get a couple of nice runs in on Saturday and Sunday so I am pleased with that.  Pam and Kelly and I will be here another week with Marg and Bill so there will be plenty of more time with them which we are looking forward to.  The weather has been absolutely wonderful, warm but not excessively hot temperatures and a nice breeze.

That is about it from up north here.  Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles.  More (with pictures) to follow...

Have a great week!


  1. What a great idea..getting together there. It sounds like a lot of very caring and important people showed up. I think it says volumes about Meghan and your son...Good Karma!

  2. What a wonderful tribute to Meghan and Adam. I can't wait to see some pictures of that special place. You and Pam enjoy your time there.
