Road trip!

Monday after lunch, we headed out on a road trip. It was about a two hour drive from here to the little town of Ingleside on the St. Lawrence River across from New York State.

We had been invited to visit our friends Bob and Denise and their dog Scarlet! You might remember them from last year's Mexico RV Caravan trip.

Here is the route we took...

Bob and Denise enjoyed last year's trip so much that they are returning again this year to see even more of Mexico!

We spent some time reminiscing and going over the coming itinerary, and Bob and Denise put together a delicious dinner...

Kevin, Ruth, Bob, and Denise.

Dinner is served.

We drank some (too much?) wine in the evening, and they had even saved us each a shot of tequila from our distillery visit last year. We'll be stopping in at the same distillery early in the trip, so we can get stocked up again!

The next day we went for a walk along the shore.

Things are green!

It had rained the evening before and it was still overcast, but at 17C (63F) the temperature was nice for a walk and there was no wind.

The St. Lawrence River.

Nice walking path.

It was an old railway line.

Too many Canada geese.


We walked through the Farran Park Campground.

Some fall campers.

Scarlet went for a swim.

Freighter on the St. Lawrence Seaway.

Did I mention too many Canada geese?!

Lots of laughs with Bob and Denise (thanks again guys!) and we will see them again at some point over the next two and a half weeks before we head to Ecuador.

The nice weather has returned. Today is another late September summer day with sunshine and a forecast high of 24C (75F).

Record low price on all three colors of the popular and highly rated KitchenAid 6 Qt Stand Mixer.

And in Canada...


  1. Beautiful area for hiking and being with friends.

  2. How fun! I remember how they were almost the only couple from your caravan last year who consistently went on all the hikes with you two. That's great that they can join you for the next caravan too!

    1. You remember correctly! They were definitely our hiking buddies last year and they had such a fun time they wanted to do it again. We should have a few more hikers joining us on hikes this year. :-)

  3. Very nice couple! I'm glad we got to meet them. Looks like it was a fun evening.

    1. You should get to see them again this year Chris as long as you and Juan can met with us somewhere along our route. :-)

      It was a great evening and morning the next day.
