Jun 25, 2014 - Dundurn castle, steam water plant, Stoney Creek battlefield

It rained all yesterday and we stayed in the Eagle, I went to Walmart to get groceries. Dairy products are really expensive here. Today we visited Dundurn castle that was occupied by the first prime minister. In the early 1800's Quebec and Ontario formed a confederation (country) that lasted for about 30 years before all of Canada was combined into a country. This is a 40 room mansion and we were given a very informative tour. One of the interesting things we saw was the pidgeon tower - pidgeons were their poultry meat (vs chicken). The...

2014 Eagle trip

Jun 23, 2014 - Canadian Warplane Museum

The weather was cloudy and rain was predicted, also being a Monday most places were closed. We first went to the Botanical Garden that AAA has as a gem, we weren't so impressed but it would have been great for Cheryl. It consists of 3-4 separate garden areas, we went to the main one only. The rose gardens weren't in full bloom, staff were working throughout - probably a better venue for a real gardener. The warplane museum was great, however. It's in a large hangar at the airport that looks to be more commercial flights. There were many...

Jun 22, 2014 - Alexander Graham Bell

We went to the home where Alexander lived with his parents when he was first working on the telephone and learned that the family came from Scotland, his mother was deaf, his father worked with the deaf. They showed us the first 3 models he developed as he worked on the concept of the telephone - the second one used sulfuric acid. He made a phone call from this home to Pleasant Hill in the neighboring countryside. We also toured the home of a miniister turned phone agent who was instrumental in getting the phone system established in...

2014 Eagle trip

Jun 21, 2014 - Hamilton harbor and dog show

The campground hosts the ABI dog show every month, this is the weekend. There are lots of tents, a show ring and some very beautiful dogs. We spoke to a couple with a husky type of dog, they were in a small tent with the dog. When she was taken to the ring they had to hide behind their car to keep her from being distracted. I got some cat food samples from a vendor, Ray helped another participant put up his tent and we saw his LARGE dogs, very beautiful. Then we went to a Petro Canada station and I got the phone Sim card, the guy sold it to...

2014 Eagle trip

Jun 20, 2014 - Oh Canada

We bought diesel at Pilot in Port Huron, a very busy station but right on the route. The border crossing at the Blue water Bridge was scenic and easy. The toll booth was large, no problem there. The booth at customs was very narrow, Ray was able to just get through without hitting the mirrors, RV's go in on the car side, they need to have a more open lane for RV's. The only question we got was if we had a gun and where we were going, no boarding of the RV, no question about food or alcohol on board. Wish I had known, would have stocked up...

Aug 25, 2011 - Le Grand Départ

3 hre du matin, nous quittons Québec pour rejoindre notre première destination « Moab en Utah, le paradis du vélo!! ». 3784 km à parcourir pour y arriver. Nous sommes impatients de le voir! Oups! Petit changement à l'horaire... Arrivé sur la rive-sud de Québec, nous réalisons que nous n'avons pas les boxs qui débarrent les nuts de roues en cas de crevaison. Alain est convaincu qu'ils sont restés chez Subaru Lévis lors du dernier entretien. Comme nous ne pouvons risquer une crevaison en plein désert, nous retournons à la maison, car il est...

Jul 14, 2010 - Day 26 Benton Harbor - Cambridge, Ontario

Benton Harbor was not given the fullest of our attention. At this point, we are just trying to get home. We also knew there was an indoor pool at the hotel, so why venture out to try to swim in one of the Great Lakes? We were regretting that previous decision by morning, so, before we left the area, we swung down to Lake Michigan to at least take a peek. The Lakes are so large, they look like the ocean with sand beach surrounding them. We couldn't find an area that wasn't a fee area, so we didn't actually stick out toes in the water;...

Oct 18, 2006 - Lawson Park, Freelton, Ontario

We again left late enough to avoid traffic, and drove the 60 miles to Lawson Park in Freelton (near Hamilton), where our cruising friends Harvey and Margaret stay in their 5th wheel for the summers. It was great to see them again! We had lunch in the warm sun on their deck, surrounded by beautiful landscaping - they really have settled in even if just for the summer! Their daughter and 11 month old grandson joined us for a delicious dinner that Margaret prepared. It was fun to see this handsome child that Margaret had spent hours knitting...
