I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Canada, eh!

Canada straight thru sign
Canada Straight Thru
August 6, 2013

We crossed into Canada at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. around lunch time.  We knew we would have a bit of extra time after we crossed.   After clearing customs, we stopped at the OGL Casino in Sault Ste. Marie then did a bit of shopping for a few things we would need camping like dark chocolate before getting back on the road.  We followed the Trans Canada highway to Espanola, Ontario then turned down towards our final destination for the day.  We stopped for a lovely fish dinner at a quaint little diner in South Baymouth.  Once at the motel we unloaded what we would need for the night, took a walk to the gift shop and the ferry landing then settled into the motel.

The weather had already turned cold enough to turn the heater on in our motel room.  We had hit rain on and off, with more on the way.  I have to admit the tiny bathroom with its vintage pink fixtures looked rather enticing knowing we would have no shower facilities until we arrived home.  Oh sure, if we were desperate we could drive in from the campsite to Tobermory to use the paid showers.  I fretted about the cold and wet forecast because I know that combination is a bad trigger for me.  Other than that we chatted about the day, celebrating our anniversary on the road and what the camping trip held in store for us.
