Happy Canada Day

For anybody who cares, it's Canada's birthday today. Good enough reason for a nationwide party, I suppose, while the Americans will have their big event on Monday. Personally, I'm not a very patriotic Canadian, so it's not a big deal to me.

It's also the birthday of our cat, Molly. You didn't know we have a cat? Well we don't really, but we had one until we took up this motorhome living almost four years ago. At that point, Molly was getting older and we didn't think she would adjust well to full time motorhoming so my sister agreed to adopt her. Today, she is 19 years old! And still doing very well considering that fact! So Happy Birthday Molly!

We had an active day yesterday, and it was a beautiful summer day to be active! We started the morning out with a 3km bike ride to a hiking trail. Did the 5km hike, and then another 3km bike ride back to Sherman. After lunch, we rented a canoe and went for an hour long canoe ride. Then, took the bikes out again and did another 10km bike ride. If not for the mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies, and horse flies, it would have been a perfect day! Still, we did enjoy ourselves.

A wet dog!


  1. Beautiful header photo. I am amazed that Molly is 19 years old, happy birthday Molly! Good to see Whiskey too, she sure is a good sport. The park looks and sounds great even with the abundance of bugs.


  2. Happy Canada day, We won't be doing anything for the USA's birthday either, maybe wear some patriotic shirt that's about it.After the holiday is over, Sam will be taking the fiver to the Lake and spend some time with his Grandson. As long as there is water they are happy, Surprised they both don't have gills or webbed feet. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna....

  3. Whiskey is having such a great time, you can see that huge grin. Molly looks very content. Happy birthday.

  4. Happy Canada Day to the entire family!

  5. You are finally getting some sun, and attempting to get your tan back. To bad you had so much fly company sounds kinda crowded.

  6. Happy Canada Day... Looks like you're really enjoying yourselves. And so does Whiskey!
    Happy Birthday Molly
    Have fun & Travel safe

  9. Happy Birthday Molly!!..and Happy Canada Day to you all!!

  10. Thank you everyone. We had a great Canada Day, hope those that were celebrating as well, had a good one too. Molly is doing very well and is a spoiled cat with Kevin's sister, Elaine. It is a good fit for them both. We loved Keji and it is definitely a park for those that love the outdoors (and bugs).

    Thank you for following along on our journey Cathy. Looks like you have work cut out for yourself if you start writing from the beginning. Look forward to reading your adventures.
