Stoney Point - November 21, 2014 - Good Morning! At some point you will be contemplating a healthy breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner so I thought I would make your search easy and attempt to feature some fantastic healthy hot spots around the province. You will note a focus on Windsor-Essex and area as we live in Stoney Point and Cornwall as it was my husband’s hometown. I’m also always looking at what there is to do and interesting places and things that catch my eye to check out. Hopefully I’ve made your life a little easier by highlighting these items. Below you will find your Hometown Highlights for Friday, November 21st.
