The beautiful weather and lilacs in full bloom were only part of what made our day great. We stopped at The Empire Cheese Factory, who were Grand Champions of the Cheddar Cheese Division at the 2008 Royal Winter Fair. Here, there were free samples and a chance to purchase their lovely cheese products. We had a wonderful home made lunch at Chubby's Restaurant. The delicious hot buffet was just scrumptious! We were able to enjoy carved roast beef and chicken along with all the fixin's!

Next stop was the World Famous Chocolate Factory. We found enough delicious deals and bargains to satisfy any sweet-tooth. Then, we were off to Glover's Farms where we could purchase farm fresh vegetables and home made crafts, quilts and collectables. Not to mention that throughout our bus ride we had the pleasure of Peter Brotherhood, our tour guide, and his extensive knowledge of Northumberland County. Peter is a retired teacher and a specialist in both Geography and History and we couldn't wait to learn more about this beautiful countryside in Toronto's backyard. His commentary during our ride was lively, interesting and amusing. There were also some lucky draw winners on this trip. Kyle Brisbane, Robert Davies, Lena O'Leary, Sharon Wilson, Mary Wagler, and Joanne Tata all won Gift Cards during the ride. Special thanks goes out to Lori Williams and our bus-driver Fred, from Parkinsons Tours.
