2nd to last blog

We have been home almost a week so trying to finish off the trip.So our last stop after visiting parry sound we stopped at my long time Cambridge Bay friend Dawn in Beaverton. Weather very hot but even the high temperature didn’t get me into Lake Simcoe. Dawn very gracious and had a room already but we chose to stay in the Rpod for our last night. 20170913_094043

100 days

Today Sept 8th we are celebrating our 100 days under the same roof. Decided to stay in Gaylord with Viv and Eddie and crack open a bottle of bubbly. Pellegrino. and Viv made brownies. So now leaving tomorrow and try and get close to Sudbury.

VIV and Eddie have toured us around local Michigan. Went to a beautiful park Cross in the Woods at Indian River. Then off to a beautiful fish hatchery called Oden. You could feed the fish for 25 cents and of course the ducks wanted their fill. A neat viewing area of the stream and fish .the fall colours are so beautiful between thunder bay and Gaylord beautiful burgundy. 20170907_12560720170907_125732.jpg20170907_123923.jpg20170907_11381120170907_113309.jpgTrue to our love of chocolate and ice cream they took us to Kilwins chocolate factory in Petoskey.
