Back West!!

 We took our time and spent a bit of it relaxing and seeing the country.  The original plan was for us to stay at a few Harvest Host locations to save a few dollars....but it did not work out that way.

Our first night was at the Big Axe Brewery. Needless to say after a few very yummy beers and a winning 2 tee shirts at trivia night we spent more than what a RV Park would have cost but it was fun.

After that were a few nights at farms, a Casino and one home garden spot that changed our minds about the Harvest Host idea.  We damn near cooked to death with temperatures in the RV of 38c.

This was our favorite farm at Le Chou et la Fleur.  Even the Kitties loved it!

A wonderful little brewery in Quebec called Microbrasserie Des Haldes.

We hit smoke from the fires in the central Ontario and pretty much followed it into the Crows Nest Pass when the rain came in and cleared sky's into BC.

Central Ontario. 

BC. Border, rainy and cool.  Look mom no smoke.

We did have our trials and tribulations though.  At one spot in Ontario I was heavily chewed upon by no see-ums.  WIFI was a big challenge as well.  Although most RV Parks say they have WIFI, they really don't!!

Both legs.... drove me crazy for a few days.

We even found a few amazing things along the way like this giant caterpillar.  It was almost as long as Tyler's hand.  About 4" long and as thick as his thumb.
Cecropia Silk Moth Caterpillar.

So all in all we have had a great journey across most of our country and am now in Cranbrook for the night and Creston tomorrow.  Back to Cranbrook in a few days for a few much needed RV repairs (our slide-out crapped out).  Looking forward to seeing friends and family and having a bit of time to think about the next adventure.  

Hope you are all having as much fun as I am.

After almost 3 years we are on the road again.

 It has been lovely staying at Rockwood Campground in Saint John, NB for the past 2 months.

Lilly's on the Lake.

Being able to get familiar with our new Minni Winni named Bella has been awesome.  All the quirks and burps that come with living a small home sorted out and close to Canadian Tire too!

Mom getting a helping hand  from Carl.

One thing about it is it takes about an hour to totally clean the place.  Then about 5 min to have a cluttered mess again.  I am surprised that we cant find one outside photo of the RV. Have to take a few on the road to post next time.

Rockwood Park has been wonderful. Lots of wild life, room for the kitties to explore and mouse hunt.  It has also given us time to say bye to all our new found friends.

We have also been able to enjoy the many trails in the park.  And now that it is warming up maybe a little swimming as well.  But I had better get out the swimsuit soon as we leave for the big adventure across Canada and home to B.C. next week!!

We did not take the chicken way even though it was
slow and steep.  We were on foot at least.

Both Tyler and I are looking forward to being on the road again and checking out new spots.  Drop us a comment if you think we should be adding anything else on out journey west.
