I spent the afternoon visiting the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum located next to Hamilton’s airport while waiting for Chris’s flight to arrive at 6 pm.  What a wonderful treasure trove of antique aircraft!  I was fortunate enough to get some in flight photographs of several aircraft, including one of only two still flying Lancaster bombers.  What a sight to see from the roof top observation deck.  They offer sightseeing rides but understandably there is quite a waiting list to get a flight.

Chris arrived on time and before we knew it, we were having dinner with Lindsay, Casey & Jen.  The kids did a marvelous job of preparing a dinner of broiled salmon, potatoes, asparagus and apple pie for dessert.  We had a nice but quick visit and had to leave before 9 pm in order to get back to our campground at a reasonable time.  Lots of traveling for both of us today.  One more day and then heading south!
