We’ve bought a house…

We’ve bought a house…

Finally, Linda and I found one that we both like, in a neighbourhood that we both like. There is even enough space on the driveway to park the trailer. I found it difficult to think about owning again as I love the travelling life.

Carleton Place - House in CP

The house is close to groceries, in a small town, near a big city that is gently expanding and has enough space for all my stuff.

Owen Sound - Puck in a box

Puck the cat wanted to get packed…or maybe just the cat in the box.

Once back in Owen Sound, we started back to getting in shape. With all the travels we did, including the race in Tucson and we find ourselves with a serious lack of exercise – yes all that hiking – but hardly any running since mid December. 

Owen Sound - Chi-Cheemaun in ice

The Chi-Cheemaun is still in the harbour and looking to get going – I am fairly certain that its crossings start in early May.
