Left Toronto 6.40pm for Parry Sound enroute for Midford Island, Georgian Bay on vacation. Arrived Parry Sound 12.15, put up at Mansion House in makeshift bed in housemaid's closet. Got up at 5.30 am, walked to dock and found Winnie and Rhoda sitting on their trunks waiting for me. Also met Minnie's father. Left Parry Sound at 7.00am and arrived at Sans Souci about 8.30am. Got a room at hotel and left our grips there and put in the day on the verandah and at the piano. Ernie and Nora arrived at 6.20 pm on the Manbic from Penetang.
