On the road ... in Western Ontario

As our busiest fall season draws to a close, the Deweys have had a lot of fun travelling to numerous libraries across the province. A few weeks ago we were in Wingham, in Huron County, for the first time. Another beautiful historic library. You can read more about the history of the region here. In 1947 they bought the first self-contained library truck in Ontario - a bookmobile they called "Miss Huron". And just around the corner from the library we found a branch of Coffee Culture Cafe and Eatery - delicious coffee, great homemade soups and sandwiches and yummy sweet desserts. They seem to have started in small towns and are now expanding into larger cities across the province. I'm sure in the future we'll have an opportunity to test them all out.
Also a big thank-you to the library staff at Chatham, who are some of the most enthusiastic and attentive booklovers that we talk to. They've also introduced us to a real treasure in Chatham - the most decadently wonderful chocolate shop! Eve Chocolatier seems to have a theory that almost everything tastes better dipped in Belgian chocolate and who can argue with that? Apart from sinfully good truffles, they dip pretzels and even red licorice in chocolate - so, so good. Thanks Tania for all the goodies! The good news for everyone else is that you can order their treats online. Check out their Emergency Stress Relief Kit!
