• The town of Barrie, far from a Barry Crocker!

    In Australian Rhyming Slang, a Barry Crocker is known as a shocker and the town of Barrie in Ontario is far from a shocker. A couple of weekends ago we found ourselves driving North of Toronto in search of snow.  With very little research we looked at the map and decided we would head to a town called Barrie.  We had no idea exactly how long it would take us or what would greet us in Barrie but packed overnight bags just in case.
