Our Little Get Away

The second to last week of August, we took a little trip to Owen Sound, Ontario. It is a pretty little town and home to Billy Bishop, Canada's Flying Ace. The home where he lived is lovely. They have now set it up as a museum. There is no admission fee, but they ask for a donation to help keep up the home. 

We found it very interesting. Brandon and Jordan had never heard of Billy Bishop before but sure enjoyed learning about him. 

Outside the house is a Memory Tree, paying tribute to both Bishop and others who fought in the war. 

The Memory Tree is a pine and it is lit up all year at dusk to pay tribute to those who served in the Canadian military. 

I will leave some other photos for another time. I have more of Owen Sound and also some of the flowers that bloomed in our yard this year.
