Back in Ottawa

Well, we made it back to Ottawa. We're going to be staying in the motorhome up at Ruth's parents near Arnprior for the next 6 to 8 weeks, and then we'll be taking off towards Mexico for the winter.

I'll post the odd update here during that time period.

We got up at 6am in order to get out of Quebec City area before rush hour began.

Quebec City

Sunday August 17…8:30pm

We woke up in the Walmart parking lot at about 6:30am, and it was pouring rain outside. We figured that the first thing we should do is check the weather forecast, so we got moved down the road to be

Riviere du Loup, Quebec

Friday August 15…11:00pm

Pretty uneventful day today. Drove from Matane, Quebec to Riviere du Loup. Went for a walk along the shoreline just before Riviere Du Loup. Parked up at the Walmart here for the night, along with 19 other RV’s.

Matane, Quebec

Thursday August 14…11:00pm

Had a bit of a difficult time finding internet this morning. Stopped in several villages along the way to the town of Ste Anne des Monts, and couldn’t find any connection. But in the town, they had a visitor

Madeleine-Centre, Quebec

Wednesday August 13…11:00pm

It poured with rain most of last night. Woke up this morning to a bit of sun though, and so Ruth went out for a run while I did some internet. After, we went for a walk out to the wharf. There’s a small

Chandler, Quebec

Tuesday August 12…9:45pm

We left Campbellton and crossed the big bridge to the beginning of the Gaspe region of Quebec. First thing we wanted to do was to stop at the tourist info place on the other side of the bridge, but we forgot that the time changed back an hour, so we got there a bit before it opened. Waited till 9am, and grabbed a few maps and tour books of the region we will be travelling through.

Campbellton, NB

Monday August 11…10:35pm

Sure enough, we had a very peaceful nights sleep parked at the church in Rexton. Until about 6:20am, anyhow. Then, 2 seagulls were having a contest to see which one of them could squawk the loudest and longest without taking a break. It was one of those situations where you’re lying in bed figuring

Rexton, New Brunswick

Sunday August 10…9:15pm

It took us a couple of hours this morning to get everything stowed away and ready for the road. As I expected, Sherman fired right up, and was good to go.

Last day at Cavendish

Saturday August 9…10:00pm

Well, another rainy morning. The past week has certainly NOT been early August type of weather. Rain of some kind just about every day, and highs around 20C (68F). That global warming theory is certainly not happening around here!
