The last post had lots of photos…this one might not have as many…but by the end we’ll be all caught up.
Everything is reunited at our new home. The bike and the trailer and all our stuff! Trying to figure out a way to make the trailer fit in the garage!
Canada day in Carleton Place was great! This small town puts on a very good fireworks display.
The Town hall is cool and the clock works…it’s right across from a nice pub as well.
Eleasa and Linda enjoying the view from the Waterfront Gastropub – the one that looks at the town hall.
CP – Carleton Place also has an annual regatta – the Carleton Place Canoe Club is the oldest continuous canoe club in Canada – 125 Years.
Linda’s sister and brother-in-law left their kayaks here for the summer…we thought we’d try them out.
The Mississippi river is a great place to kayak around CP.
Fun sign near the highway.
The cool thing about having a back yard now is….hanging our clothes out to dry.
Houses have mice! We have a cat – unfortunately a friendly cat!
A modern home isn’t complete without a BBQ – oh the joy of assembling a new one.
We also were looking out for a small desk…and behold…someone wonderful was giving one away…we jumped at the opportunity.
Of course…we run…this time on the Roy Brown Trail in Carleton Place.
Camping was nearby at Fitzroy Provincial Park.
This was a cool trail…this looks like an ancient undersea formation…most likely was under the Champlain Sea.
We decided to go for ice cream…didn’t look at the sky first…heavy thunderstorm on the walk back…that didn’t stop us though.
Found a heron catching fish…much better than me…but then, I won’t starve if I catch nothing.
Even Puck was out enjoying the sunset.
Back at Carleton Place, we thought we’d explore, so we drove to Almonte and sat beside James Naismith – the inventor of Basketball.
I went for a motorcycle ride on the Quebec side then used a cable ferry to return. Lots of fun.
Back at Carleton Place, the CP Canoe Club held their fundraising Duck Derby…no we did’t win.
Then drove out to near Owen Sound to visit friends.
They had beautiful trails in their back yard.
Nice views on their front yard….those cows woke us up in the morning.
One of our friends was kind enough to give us this fabulous kitchen table and chairs…thank you Thomas…looks great here.
That catches us up to where we are…new adventures to follow.
