I suppose it’s time to start heading home. Tough decision! We thought we’d find a nice place near Winnipeg to camp and we stopped in and bought some corn and vegetables for a nice dinner.
We found well reviewed campground on the All Stays App and thought we’d go check it out. As we drove down the road, we thought we had better let someone know where we were as going in felt strange. Once we found the park –http://www.whitemouthrivercampground.com and drove in, it was well worth the wait. The park was a serviced campground, though a little tired, but the pricing for what was received was terrific. They even put on a fairly good fireworks display from the contributions of the seasonal campers.
From there, it was a good drive to Kenora and the Anicinabe RV park…going there without reservations on a Saturday was daring, but we managed to get a cancelation campground. It had a beautiful view of the Lake of the Woods and it seemed quiet. We were on a hill overlooking the bay.
The weather changed and a storm was approaching…the noisy campers next door packed up their family and left…great that we hadn’t moved.
We had rain-wear, so we went exploring and the weather improved!
We went on a bike ride to the train station.
The famous Kenora “Huskie the Muskie”.
When we returned we had fabulous lighting.
A dramatic Lake of the Woods sunset.
We made it out west and back without seeing bears…these two we saw well after we returned to Ontario!
We found a nice campground at Kakabeka Falls park.
Lots of Falls photos below.
Looking the other way from the falls. We had a nice short trail walk.
From the above point all the water goes to the Atlantic ocean.
The next campground was in Rainbow Falls Provincial Park…they had two sections with one on Lake Superior, but that was full when we arrived, we had to drive more to get to this one.
Who knew that Winnie the Pooh started life here In White River Ontario?
Then we found Lake Superior Provincial Park with a beautiful campground and nice campers around us.
The wood was wet so here I am drying it against the fire.
First of the Lake Superior Sunsets.
So nice looking out the front window of the trailer.
A short drive to the Pictographs of Lake Superior. The rock was wet beyond where I was and the waves had picked up. I did manage to get some photos though.
And another Sunset.
We were told about a nice hike up the Sand River…lots of water falls they said.
They weren’t kidding about the waterfalls.
We then made it to Chutes Provincial Park.
That was the last camping night before heading to our friends’ cottage…
