Sudbury Ribfest

We happened to be in Sudbury during Ribfest, so we got a half rack from Boss Hog’s BBQ.

Over there, a half-rack is generous, so we were too full after sharing this to try anything else.

We also had some Pappy’s Olde Fashioned Soda. I liked the grape and orange flavours. Butter beer was a bit too sweet. It tasted like butterscotch!

I Saw the Big Nickel

As you know, I was up north on the weekend. Any time I mentioned Nash’s parents live in a town near Sudbury, everybody always asked if I’ve ever been to the Big Nickel. Now I can finally say I have!

The nickel has overlooked Sudbury since 1964. Sudbury was originally established as a mining town where nickel played a big role.
It was modelled after the 1951 Canadian nickel with King George.

Science North

Yesterday, I went to Science North in Sudbury. There were a lot of animals and other fun contraptions. Here are some photos of my adventure:

This doesn’t seem to work:

We weren’t very good at putting this back together:
