On the road to cottage country, and some visiting along the way, but we got here in time for Happy Hour!

Where are we today ?

     Just another great night here and up early but no walkabout today. I wanted to whip into New Hamburg and pick up a couple more of those wonderful Pacific Salmon fillets on sale. Passed a few cows down the road grazing in the field too.
This girl was trying to get under the fence.
I stopped and she headed back under
good thing, don't need her
wandering down the road.
     But back home we secured our coach and on the road shortly after 9 am, Headed eastbound on the 401 hwy trough Toronto with a few construction delays but still made pretty good time.
      Stopped to visit a good friend we have not seen for a couple years, Sharry-lynn. We had a wonderful visit catching up, Dave was n there but was a great visit. She showed us their new toy. A 1948 fiat/ford, hot rod. All done up up on a mustang chassis. What a machine! she wants wheelie bars on the back end, just cause she likes to take advantage of all the power in this tiny car.

this is the original 1948 fiat
       We left there shortly after noon and missed the turn off for 401 eastbound. So pulled into a plaza to check directions and was gonna make a bite for lunch. But noticed this Pizza Pizza right across the street, heck why not share a FREE pizza slice, we have coupons in the car. So that was an easy free, lunch just hit the spot with a shared a banana we to add to it.
        Next we moved on up the road to Lindsay and stopped in to visit my ma. She is in an extended care facility and was on the way. She is being taken care of very well here and my sister and brother live close by so that they can visit her more often than they could before. We had a nice visit for a while even though she does not talk much anymore but did get a few smiles from her. It is hard to see our parents in this state of non responsiveness. 
Ma and me
      Back on the road towards Buckhorn across the causeway in Bridgenorth such a wonderful back country drive on a beautiful day.

summer time in cottage country
     We did arrive at the park about 3:30 checked into our coast to coast home park. $5.00 bucks a night with full hookups, we here for 12 days.
      All set up, and secured in time to arrive a few minutes late for "Happy Hour " at Norm and Pats. Nice to see everyone again, last time was this past June. We chatted shared stories and flapped our gums for a bit them home to whip up supper.
we being happy
        Tonight a couple boneless pork chops quickly grilled on our Weber Q, keep them moist and tender by not overcooking.
         Added to another green salad, fresh strawberries, blueberries and muskmelon(cantaloupe) sure did the trick
so tasty
this was our trip today 181 miles
        So nice to get back to this area again and be on the road, visit a few people along the way on a perfect travel day.
       Now to relax outside on a nice mild summer evening enjoying more fresh air and our e-readers.
       Thanks again for stopping by  for a visit.

Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this summer


  1. I have never seen the front of a car look like that one.
    I think ma looks pretty good. I am sure she enjoyed your visit.

    1. I have seen a few at the car shows, love the lobes of them and so tiny.
      I am sure she did too t was nice to see her again.

  2. I think FIAT called this model TOPOLINO, which means mouse.

    1. Thanks Peter it is small like a mouse and a great car to make into a hotrod.

  3. Nice that you were able to see your Mom, George. It is very difficult seeing our parents like this for sure, we have to accept the moments and the smiles for the brief times we have them. She looks happy to see you and that is the main thing.

    1. It was nice to see her again, even a couple of smiles was nice. At least she has the care she needs in a caring facility.

  4. Good timing, it would be a shame to miss happy hour! ;c)

    1. Timing is everything, can't miss "Happy Hour" lol...

  5. Another great visit with family and friends. Absolutely nothing can top that. I loved the $5 per night fee too. It sure beats most other places.

    1. It was a great day, We seldom pay more than $5.00 a night, helps us love the lifestyle.

  6. Looks like you had a very productive day.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
