Not only to Namibia...first, we had to get to Halifax.
Our daughter and her family live in Nova Scotia and she's due with our second grandchild in early September. So of course we want to spend some time with them before heading to warmer climates. We don't ever book flights this far in advance, but sometimes a deal comes along that's too good to pass up.
So we booked a one way flight with Porter Airlines from Ottawa to Halifax on October 15th. Only $157 each, taxes included.
I know that doesn't sound like a GREAT deal to some Europeans and Americans...but here in Canada where taxes are high and airlines are highly regulated, $157 each is a great deal.
Now we just have to figure our way from Halifax to New York City.
Not a bad weekend here. At least the rains have stopped, but the water is still rising. We had to move the main dock in so that the boaters could still use the boat launch area properly. That was a bit of a job, but we got it done.
You can just barely see the top of a 6 foot culvert that supplies water flow to our side of the lake. When we arrived here, you could pretty much ride a canoe through it! Not so much now.
The water pouring out the other side. We think the culvert has buckled in the middle somewhere!
This is where some of the cabin owners normally have their evening campfire. That's their firewood under the orange tarp!
This will be our last peaceful week. July 1st (Canada Day) long weekend is next weekend, and the kids get out of school this week. It's going to get very busy around here for the next two months!
