Aug 19, 2016 - On the road again!

Up and at em this morning ready for a farm fresh breakfast with my bro and sister in law. They then took us on a tour to some Amish farms to see what they do and how they live. It was pretty interesting to see. 3 little girls , aged 2, 4 , and 6 greeted us. So adorable and very inquisitive. . We were invited into one of the homes, and let me tell you,a very different way of life. We learned a lot. My brother bought me a special cream, that would help with my bites on my leg, so let's see what tomorrow will bring.so far so good! Before we...

Aug 12, 2014 - Day 3 - at Arrowhead Provincial Park

11:00AM and it is sort of raining…mostly falling off the trees right now. It rained pretty much all night, and this morning and is supposed to rain a lot of today and possibly tomorrow. We have no internet service in the park, so this, and the previous days' posts will be made tomorrow (when we stop at a Tim Hortons on our way to Temagami, our next stop). The afternoon actually turned out pretty nice...at least enough for us to take a couple of walks. It is nice to stretch our legs after a couple of days driving the RV. At 5:30PM it started...

Aug 11, 2014 - Day 2 - Toronto to Port Perry & then on to Arrowhead

Left Glen Rouge and drove to Port Perry, where we had a great visit with long-time friends Pete & Jan Thompson and Doug's cousin Joan Smith. Our final destination for the day was Arrowhead Provincial Park, where we have stayed previously. We are staying here for 2 nights, so we can have a "down day" (down, as in slow-moving, not mood). It looks like it will rain on Tuesday, so it may be an "inside, read a book" kind of day.

Aug 6, 2007 - Ride Home

This morning, we are to ride to our separate homes in Toronto and Ottawa. Barbara decided she didn't want to take 17 all the way back as it wasn't an interesting ride. She came up with a route that would take her through Algonquin Park. I was able to accompany her part of the way to Huntsville. Huntsville is a place I haven't been to in many years, I used to visit when my parents lived there for a while. We had a nice lunch at Wendy's and departed on our separate ways. I proceeded down highway 11, all the while hearing about returning...

Aug 23, 2006 - Oxbow Lake

Of to see my Aunt Marcia and her partner Peggy at thier cottage in the Muskokas on Oxbow lake. We were realy looking forward to seeing Marcia and Peggy and to getting our Kayaks of the roof of the trailer! We had a lot of fun sitting around talking with Marcia and Peggy, sitting quietly in the mornings on the deck looking out over the lake. Jacquie and I got our boats in the water twice while we were there and paddled the whole shorline of the lake, what a beutiful spot they have! We had many a tasty meal and I coaxed Marcia and Peggy into...

Aug 20, 2006 - Huntsville

On the way West to pick up Carson from camp. Again on the back roads, we made our way through Bancroft, Haliburton, and on to Huntsville in the heart of Muskoka cottage country. Set up camp at Arrowhead Provincial Park for several days. Nights are cooling off so the camping days may be coming to an end. Picked up Carson on the 20th and he was a very happy camper. Thoroughly enjoyed his camp experience and is already planning a return trip next year!

Feb 17, 2005 - Leaving Muskoka

Hi Everyone, Well I leave Canada in 8 days and let's just say I am a little nervous. I am going to miss Muskoka so much, especially when we have those -38'C days (those are my favourite). Or how about the 16 times I got stuck on our road this winter (as it is not maintained by the town). And the drama at the Inn, who could forget this, definitely not Penny or I. Luv Sara

Jun 21, 2004 - Algonquin and Hunstsville

We spent two days visiting the area of Alqonquin Provincial Park and the town of Hunstsville. When we arrived the weather was lovely and so we had a walk by the local lake but then it changed so didn't do much exploring of the park. However we did visit the Hunstville Heritage Museum or Muskoka Heritage Place as it is called. The Muskoka museum walks through history from Muskokas’s First People to the industriousness and society of pioneer settlers. This visit gave a perception of the history of this part of Canada and how people at the...
