A LONE FREIGHTER PLYS CALM LAKE HURON WATERS HEADING NORTH
Hurricanes generally sweep north after striking America's East coast and rain themselves out in the Canadian Maritime Provinces. Chances are good the hurricane will have blown itself out long before we get there and we'll have sunny skies for our travels. Noticed temperatures this morning in Campbelton New Brunswick was 35F. Guess we had better pack an extra set of woollies if we decide to head up around that way.
ON OUR WAY OUT OF THE PARK THIS MORNING WE PASSED LITTLE MOLLY POPPINS ON HER WAY TO THE MAIL ROOM TO SCOOP ALL THE A&W COUPONS OUT OF THE RECYCLING BIN
Light showers in the night with a rainy drizzle for most of our day. Armed with the latest A&W coupons (compliments of Molly Poppins of course) Pheebs and I took advantage of a Bacon & Egger sandwich, hash brown, and coffee shortly after rolling into Goderich. Cruised down around the harbor and beach areas before exiting Goderich through half a dozen streets on the lake side of town and steering a course for home. Rained all the way.
NOBODY AT THE DOGGY WALKING AREA SO PHEEBS AND I GOT US SOME BEACHCOMBER TIME IN
NOTICE THE NICE CLEAR LAKE HURON WATER
HARD TO TELL WHERE WATER MEETS SKY
LAKE LEVEL SEEMS TO BE DOWN A FEW INCHES
IF YOU LOOK VERY CLOSELY AT THIS PHOTO YOU CAN JUST BARELY MAKE OUT THE SUPERSTRUCTURE OF A LARGE FREIGHTER PASSING BY…..TIP: GO TO THE END OF THE ROCKS AND LOOK UP
IT WAS A DRIZZLY MORNING WALK ALONG THE LAKE FOR A FEW FOLKS
It was a good day for taking care of things inside so that is basically what we did. Lots of little things to fuss around with before we leave. Panic has not set in yet and is probably not likely to. For seasoned Snow Birds like ourselves who have done this over and over these past dozen + years it's kind of old hat for us plus the novelty of traveling has worn off a bit. But from experience I also know this...…..as soon as we get the big wheels rolling Sunday morning our adventuress spirit will once again revive itself and come alive. Always happens that way and especially for me.
THAT IS THE BEACON LIGHT YOU SEE
I’M GUESSING THE CAR ABOVE IS A STUDABAKER AND BELOW IS A MINI-MINOR STILL NEEDING A BED PAN
HEY WHAT THE HECK IS AWESOME TRAVELS GEORGE UP TO THAT HE HASN’T TOLD US ABOUT:))
Well, do I put all the summer lawn stuff away now or wait until we return later sometime in November. Think I might split on that with maybe putting half of it away. I don’t anticipate any hard core freezing before we return either so plan to leave the outside water on and our pond pump going. I’ve noticed already with much cooler temperatures my 3 pond fish have already slowed down. Only half a dozen frogs this year so I put some sand and mud in the pond for them to burrow into. Plan to leave the pond pump going all winter to bubble and oxygenate the water for the 3 Amigo fish.
