My regular walks have suffered over the past three weeks during our move, but I headed out late this afternoon to get back into it. I need to find some regular routes here in Meaford that will make good walking. The Georgian Trail was an obvious place to start.
The section from Collingwood to Meaford was completed as the North Grey Railway in 1871, but abandoned in 1986 after the failure of the Collingwood shipyards, the major customer at that time. A non-profit group of citizens raised money, purchased the right-of-way, and created the trail after that.
Meanwhile, ran around between the bank, builder, and lawyer's offices today trying to ensure that we actually have enough money to complete our house sale and purchase, which close tomorrow. If it weren't for banks, lawyers and the taxman, this process would be so simple!
