Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
Today is the day where visitor 20,000 reads our Blog. I thought maybe yesterday but today for sure. I installed this counter about 2 years ago just to see if anyone was checking us out. I would never have dreamed that so many people would be interested in reading about our travels. Our Blog serves more than one purpose, the original was to share with family and friends some of our adventures. After a while I decided it also became a travel journal for ourselves, writing about our thoughts and experiences and a multitude of pictures along the way, its kinda neat to go back and see what we did on a certain date 3 years ago, or pictures of some of the so many sights we have seen.
Well today was a picture perfect warm sunny summer day. Clear blue skies, bright sunshine, a light warm breeze and temperatures 28c (82f) most of the day. A morning drive into Buckhorn for a few items where it makes you realize how much tourism does for these small towns. Normally a quiet sleepy village everything is hopping, parking lots full to overflowing, and everyone in a good mood, lineups in the stores even the liftlock in town has boats waiting their turn, (sorry no picture, forgot my camera) to make their way along the Trent/Severn Waterway. It is 386 kms (240mi) long, with 44 liftlocks, and goes from Trenton on Lake Ontario to Port Severn on the Georgian Bay.
This is Lock One at Trenton Ontario
Then back home to putter about, walkabout, chat with people and enjoy the sunshine, and warm fresh air. We were able to relax and read for a while then to BBQ some smoked sausage on a bun with bacon and cheese, corn on the cob (on the barbie) and potato salad for a great summer time supper. Then just relax and read outside until it cooled down and got too dark to read, about 9.10pm.
Strange Canadian Laws
Out of control trees or shrubs encroaching on city sidewalks or roadways is against the law on Oak Bay BC. In 1994 the Hazardous Tree and Shrub by-law was passed to ensure that residents controlled their foliage.
Notice the controls for this New Map on the left side, you can zoom into different areas of the map and see where we are or have been.
