It is hard to believe that the time has almost arrived. I am beyond excited, Doug maybe not so much. He will be, once we get Elbroko through Montreal and then on and off the Ferry and we are all safely on the “Rock”. Don’t forget we are newbies at this.
There was time a month ago that I thought we would be sleeping in a tent for 2 ½ months. With all the wet weather we were not sure we would get Elbroko out from her burrow. Luckily we had a couple of dry days and just a sprinkling on the day Doug went to get her. So no tenting for us!!!!
We did manage to squeeze in another practice run this past weekend with our good friends Cindy and Ray. We went to Inverhuron Provincial Park on the beautiful shore of Lake Huron.
We have never camped at this Provincial Park, so we were looking forward to it. It was opening weekend for Inverhuron so they did not have a lot of the clean up done yet, but that’s OK we had a great time anyway. The weather was not too bad, at least it didn’t rain all weekend. We did manage to get a few games of Washers in early Saturday afternoon before the rain. The guys were triumphant at washers on Saturday but the gals whooped them on Sunday. And I’m sorry to say the guys were the winners at cards too. We have to let them win sometimes. Although it was cooler the sun was out and we could explore the park.
The campsites were very private with lots of growth between them. Didn’t really matter there were only about 15 campsites booked. Why is it that on “Go Home Day it is always nice?”
The next few days we will be busy getting Elbroko packed and organized and finish up some of our outside house work…if it ever stops raining.
The next time you check back we will be on the road somewhere between Baden and Nickawac, New Brunswick, where Doug’s brother Dan lives. Donna, Doug’s sister has hitched a ride this far with us. So we will enjoy a little family time, as it has been a couple of years since we last saw Dan. We are looking forward to catching up with him.
Don't Be a Stranger!
