Today is John Graves Simcoe Day in Ontario, and is a holiday for the wife and I. Simcoe is most famous for abolishing slavery in what was then called Upper Canada, and for founding Toronto Ontario He was Lieutenent Governor from 1791-1796.

So we took the Pontiac out early this morning and headed south to one of our favorite restaurants for breakfast. It's only about 1/2 hour from town, but we love any excuse to get out of the city and smell the clean fresh country air.

From there we travelled another 1/2 hour west to visit historic Merrickville Ont, and then took an alternate route back to the Pontiac's storage barn.

We were out for about 2 hours altogether, with about 1 hour driving time, with all the windows down and the wind blowing through our hair. Well at least through my wife's hair. I haven't had much hair for 40 years!! HaHa!

Hope you enjoy the photos of the old Pontiac in action!
