Looking forward to a road trip!

Well, we are done at the house... for now. There is still a lot to be done, or at least a lot that could be done. But eventually it will be up to the people who buy the place. In the meantime, Ruth's brother Colin will take over where we left off and it will be up to him to get some more things done over the winter.

The plan is that we will return here for the last two weeks of May next year. We have the auction arranged for Saturday ,May 29th.

But, of course a lot depends on what is happening in the world at that time.

Speaking of which, I heard from our Airbnb host in Berlin. Due to the rising caseloads, Berlin has instituted a curfew between the hours of 11pm and 6am. Apparently Berlin is very famous for it's nightlife, so while that may affect some people, I explained to her that it wasn't a problem for us because we would be sleeping during those hours anyhow!

Boy, you can sure tell that winter is coming. Woke up this morning to temperatures at the freezing mark. Fortunately it's still supposed to be a nice weekend as we are heading to Gravenhurst, Ontario to visit our son Alex and his girlfriend CJ, and their new puppy Lucy.

Just some last minute puttering around here, then we hit the road around lunch hour for the 4 hour drive. Looking forward to a road trip!

    Be Safe and Enjoy the road trip.

    It's about time.

    1. We hope so too but things are changing by the day so we have to keep our eyes open so that we are aware of these changes and not in for a big surprise!

  2. How long do you plan to tour Europe?

    1. For a couple of years but we will still be coming back to Canada for visits over that time period.
