Mon. July 11th. Toronto to Oshawa

Join us as we travel North America in our
 Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006

       Up early as usual in downtown Toronto after a good sleep in a huge king size fluffy bed. The view out our window is of the Toronto City Hall a short distance away and the hustle and bustle of a city just awakening 17 floors below us.

       After the overly expensive breakfast (free to us thou) we are on the road heading along the Gardner Expressway and north on the Don Valley Parkway/ and hwy 404 for about 40 minutes to my cousins in Aurora to retrieve our house, and thank them for the great visit and convenient parking spot. We hooked up our car and drove a couple of miles to park in the large Walmart Super Centre, to check email, relax and update yesterdays Blog with a nice breeze thru our open windows. It's a hot day about 35 c (92f) and we are loving it.

73 miles (119kms) today
       Once this was done we are on the road to visit our friends Dave and Sharry-Lynn in Oshawa. Arriving at their place 45 minutes later and park in the empty mutual drive  between the houses.
Dave and Sharry-Lynn

       We met them quite a few years ago in Algonquin Park when we paddled onto a beach near their campsite and have kept in touch ever since. In fact Sharry-lynn visited us for the day when we were camped at Tres Amigos campground on Stone Island, Mazatlan Mexico,  January 27th 2010 when her cruise ship stopped at the port there for the day.

       The afternoon and evening flew by as we chatted, played throw the ball with their dog Tia and just enjoyed the great weather and a nice BBQ'd supper, sausage on a bun, stuffed baked potatoes and salads, perfect for a hot summer day.
Tia , come on throw the ball!

       Such a great way to spend an afternoon and evening with friends and catch up, hopefully see them rving at some point this summer as well.
No Tia no more ball playing

       Before we know it, was time to call it a night, time sure flies when you are having fun!

Visitor Number


  1. I remember meeting Sharry-Lynn on the Isla. Nice to be able to visit internationally. We loved our King bed last week in the hotel, think I'll get one for the next park home we build. No space in the RV for one but we are happy with the queen bed.

  2. Contessa:
    Yes nice to visit people all over the place. We found the king size bed to big, got lost in it!


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