Oct 3, 2015 - Toronto
A trip to Toronto closed out September with a bang. We drove from the camper to Hamilton, Ontario, to the Go Center, about an hour and a half away where we were to catch a commuter train to Toronto. We got to the station and were told that the train wasn’t running, so we got on the Go Bus for about another hour and a half. From the Canadian line to Toronto, both sides of the road (except where the lake was right against the road) was almost continuous commercial, industrial areas. Have no idea where all the people come from to work at these...Jump to full entry
Sep 30, 2015 - Niagara Falls
Visited Niagara Falls today, absolutely awesome……but just about did not get to awesome. We started on the US side and found that Niagara was an old run down city and the Niagara Falls State Park was terrible. They are building a new viewing area and therefore fences kept you from the existing viewing areas and we could not see over the fences. Almost turned around and left. We did want to say we had been to Canada so went across the bridge, used our passports, and drove down Niagara Parkway and were blown away. Niagara Falls, Ontario is a...Jump to full entry
Aug 8, 2014 - that's alot of water
We rode over to the falls today. We went to what they call Goat Island. Donald rode a elevator down 175 feet to the water and walked up to the fall's . They issued you a raincoat and some flip flops because you really get wet. I sit up at the top and watched the people. You would not believe the people. Every nationality you can think of. Made a trip to walmart to stock up. We may not be around one for awhile. Donald called his cousin Cheryl who lives in Canada and we decided to met them tomorrow on the Canadian side for dinner.Jump to full entry
Aug 7, 2014 - Another good rv dealer.
Donald got on the phone this morning and found a tire at a rv dealer about 25 miles from us. Wasn't the same brand but will have to do for now. They mounted the tire but Donald had to put it on. Glad we had made reservations for tonight because we won't get there as early as we usually do. We wanted four nights at Niagara Falls but they only had three nights so we will have to travel on Sunday which we don't like to do but you do what you have to. We are at Niagara Heartland Campground. It is a nice campground and the best thing is it is...Jump to full entry
Aug 6, 2013 - Adieu nos amis!
It's a beautiful morning in the low 70's and warming up fast along with the humidity! Hugh came over and helped Dave with the bikes as when I opened the shade after we parked the camper here Dave noticed that the ladder step had broken that the bike rack was attached to and the bikes were hanging cross ways. We were so fortunate that they hung on as we have no idea at what point during the trip that the step broke as we hadn't touch them so far! The guys moved them up the ladder some and secured them again. We had to make tracks :( and we...Jump to full entry
Aug 5, 2013 - Niagara Hartland RV Park
No Internet here along with very poor phone service! Oh no, I just remembered the banana ice cream that we were supposed to have Nicki! Darn, we were so looking forward to having some! Please send us the recipe...and we know you'll enjoy! Another chilly night with lows in the 50's. What a beautiful morning though in the 70's! We slept in to catch up on some much needed rest. Bev and Hugh brought over breakfast of TIM HORTON'S coffee (we were out and in dire need of that cup of Joe :), english muffins, along PB and jam. We supplied the...Jump to full entry
Aug 4, 2013 - Niagara Hartland RV Park
We rolled into Niagara Hartland RV Park, 2383 Hartland Road, Gasport, NY set up and rested for awhile with a cold drink. What a wonderful time we have had! We did need another couple of days though just to catch our breath before the long journey home. I phoned my sister Tammy to see if she could come out. She said that she'd see us at midnight as she was working the three to eleven shift. Wow! Dave had spoken to Greg to see if he and his family could stop by. Greg is a very close friend that Dave had worked with and we hadn't seen him in...Jump to full entry
