ALL OF TONIGHT’S PHOTOS WERE TAKEN THIS AFTERNOON IN VARNA ONTARIO
Our Thursday rains brought with them much cooler temperatures & I actually pulled on a long sleeve flannel lumberjack shirt Thursday afternoon. Area farmer's are calling this a million dollar rain & it is to continue well into Sunday. One of the cottagers at Deer Park Lodge actually asked Kelly to turn some heat on. Yep, the seasons are a changing alright:))
LOCATED IN VARNA ONTARIO, THIS RENOVATED OLD CHURCH IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR MONTHLY, WEEKLY, OR WEEK-END RENTALS THROUGH DEER PARK LODGE
It was a good morning to spend some time with my trusty road Atlas. Because we are likely heading for Spencerport NY when we leave here in mid October to visit Kelly's Mother, I have to find a way from Rochester New York to Knoxville Tennessee when we leave Spencerport. And, after spending some time with my Atlas, I do think I have a route figured out. I prefer to use a paper map when first roughing out a travel route in a new area because it gives me the larger overall picture. Once I have a route concept in my head I get on the computer & generally use MapQuest for mileages, etc. We do have Microsoft's Streets & Trips but I'm kind of used to MapQuest.
Where to go from Knoxville will be decided at a later date but it will either be south to visit my Aunt Jean in Florida or west to Arizona. We are hoping Aunt Jean can make it out to Arizona again this year to see us. We will wait & see how her health is coming along.
JUST 3 DAYS AGO THIS LARGE ROOM HAD NO FURNITURE & WAS FILLED WITH JUST ONE MAN’S CARPENTRY TOOLS, PAINT CANS, TARPS, ETC…AN AMAZING TRANSFORMATION TOOK PLACE HERE IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME
Noticed Jim over at JIMBO'S JOURNEYS landed a photo of his rig on the cover of RV Journal’s 2012 summer edition. Congrats to Jim & I know that warm feeling inside when one is lucky enough to have a photo published.
Came across an article today written by Astrophysicist Adam Frank that I liked. It is based on the Mars landing of Curiosity. Thought he summed things up about our broken world very well………………MATURITY & THE MEANING OF CURIOSITY
A MIRRORED REFLECTION
Our heavy overcast day did not lead to anything exciting. However, I did slip over to Varna, not far from Bayfield, to take some photos for DEER PARK LODGE. Kirsten & Rob (Stella & Guinness's Mom & Dad) have just completed a superb job of renovating an old church Kirsten recently purchased. Complete with an new outside paint job, the empty interior has been transformed into a superb, artsy, & cozy rental unit for Deer Park Lodge guests.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( A married couple were asleep when the phone rang at 2 in the morning. The very blonde wife picked up the phone, listened a moment and said, "How should I know, that's 1200 miles from here!" and hung up. The husband said, "Who was that?" The wife answered, "I don't know, some woman wanting to know if the coast is clear."
