update from up north...

I must admit, I felt a tiny bit guilty the past couple weeks as the work at the house has heated up and the stress on Steve has mounted...but there's not much I can do from here so I got past it pretty quick! And now its Steve's turn for some fun. He's fishing in Canada with my Dad and Uncles till late Wednesday so no updates on the house till after then!

Last week was our week of technical tours. We started out in Niagara Falls for just one night but we managed to get in most of the Niagara Falls must do's: Maid of the Mist, caves behind the falls, and the casino. I won $20 on nickle slots!!

Then it was on to Toronto for 4 nights. We went on 4 different plant tours from there. The tours were very interesting (I'll spare you the details) and our evenings in Toronto were a blast!

We ended the week with a drive through Algonquin Park, a tour of Chalk River National Labs, and camping and white water rafting.

Now I'm back in Ottawa for the last 3 weeks of the summer institute. The first 3 weeks have flown by! They keep us extremely busy and of course we need to build our professional relationships with dinner and drinks after the sessions every night!
