The Kincardine Pathfinders travelled to downtown Toronto Sept. 3
to visit the Royal Ontario Museum.
Among the group were six youth, Christiane Ritter, Stephanie Bonnett,
Rebecca Dadson, Achsah Collamore, Natalie Potter and Kaleigh
Murphy-Burton; three leaders, Alicia Noakes, Liz Dadson and Julie
Bonnett; and parent volunteer Christine Collamore.
The adventure began at 7:30 a.m. when the vehicles left the parking
lot at Kincardine Baptist Church. The group arrived at Yorkdale Mall
at 11 a.m. and made the trek to the subway station, riding the TTC
to the museum destination.
The unit toured the museum, taking in the Ancient Chinese display,
featuring architecture and statues from the Ming Dynasty (16-17
Century), an Imperial Palace Hall, and many artefacts; the Canadian
section, with First Nations exhibits, Algonquin birch bark canoes
and much more; the marvellous dinosaur display; a bat cave; minerals
and gems; and displays of ancient artefacts from Egypt, South Asia,
Africa and Mexico.
The return ride on the subway, during rush-hour, was almost as
exciting as the tour of the museum. The group stopped in Orangeville
for supper and arrived home at about 10:30 a.m. after a terrific
trip to Toronto.
