On the way we will be talking about the History of the area and the changes as a start to our morning.

We will stop down the beach near the local and some basic stretches with fresh air, which is important to anyone that needs to feel healthy and clear minded.

Walking back along Bay Street from the beach we will end the group tour at the World of style! 410 Cafe on 410 City Road. We will have a nice drink and sandwiches of our choice and sit and talk about the great morning that we had.
