WATER RUNNING OVER SOME ROCKS IN A NEARBY CREEK CREATED THIS MYRIAD OF BUBBLES
Had ourselves a cold, wet & miserable weather day. Outside activities were consequently curtailed. Even our morning walk was rained out. Nice to see everything greening up so fast though.
GUESSING THIS MAY BE AN INDIGO BUNTING ON OUR FRONT YARD FEEDER WITH THE GOLDFINCH – MAMA ROBIN ON HER NEST IN OUR BACK YARD
Took us awhile to find a wall space in the rig big enough to hang up our big South-West Lizard but we did finally locate a space in our bathroom for him. He fit in there just about fine.
Last summer Kelly's daughter bought herself a new Blackberry & gave Kelly her old one. Kelly just activated that Blackberry last week & likes it. That means the cell phone she normally carried now goes to me & I have it hung on my belt beside my Canon point & shoot camera. Guess that kind of brings us up a notch in the cell phone world. If I can ever remember to turn mine on that is.
In about a month kids will be getting out of school so we hope to take the Big EEE out on her shake-down cruise before all the kids & families flood the campgrounds, Provincial Parks & scenic areas around our Province. I'm thinking we'll probably head north up along the Lake Huron shoreline somewhere. Been quite awhile since we have been up that way so have no idea what's out there for internet etc. We have heard some Provincial Parks have Wifi now. Guess we will just have to venture forth & find out. Since about 99% of our RV travels have been south of the border we sometimes feel like strangers in our own land. We are far more familiar with RV sites thousands of miles away than we are with what’s available right her in our Provinces own back yard. We hope to make some in-roads about that this summer. We have traveled through many Ontario areas & places years ago but we just haven’t done a lot of it in an RV. Especially one 36’ long so we will be kinda feeling our way along seeing what works for us & what doesn’t when we get out there. We do have some marvellously scenic country north of us up along the Bruce Peninsula between Lake Huron & Georgian Bay. Even got shipwrecks up there in them waters too. Just gotta wait for some sunny warm weather now before heading out in probably early June:))
LOOKING FORWARD TO SUNNIER DAYS AHEAD
Should add that my new header photo is actually a file photo from last summer. Some of you may remember it. Soon as I manage to get out & get myself an acceptable current up to date picture I will replace it again. Thanks to the reader for reminding me to change my header photo. I always seem to forget that.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls-Royce to a downtown New York City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5,000. The loan officer, taken aback, requested collateral. "Well, then, here are the keys to my Rolls-Royce", the man said. The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank's underground parking for safe keeping, and gave him $5,000. Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank's doors, and asked to settle up his loan and get his car back. "That will be $5,000 in principal, and $15.40 in interest", the loan officer said. The man wrote out a check and started to walk away.
"Wait sir", the loan officer said, "while you were gone, I found out you are a millionaire. Why in the world would you need to borrow $5,000?" The man smiled. "Where else could I securely park my Rolls-Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $15.40?
GREAT spot for the lee-zard! We will be looking forward to your summer camping adventures----ReplyDelete

Great places to explore but a lot of the provincial parks are not that big rig friendly anymore and we find them very expensive. But as you know there is some wonderful country side to explore.ReplyDelete
Have fun a get out there.
The bunting and finch make a pretty pair.ReplyDelete
Good reason to get familiar with our own area..ReplyDelete
nice to hear that the three of you will be getting out in the Big EEE and explore some of your own province! Camping in Canada can have it's issues so we wish you luck!!ReplyDelete
Great photos of the birds.ReplyDelete

Looking forward to traveling along with The Bunch to brand new places. Yes, that is the perfect spot for lizard!ReplyDelete
Loved that Groaner.ReplyDelete
We really loved Killarney Provincial Park when we were there in 2010. Maybe you could check it out. We saw a cute little bear . It is in our blog archives in September 2010 if you want to go lookReplyDelete
I camped in some provincial parks, decades ago, and liked them. Do you have public lands to boondock?ReplyDelete
