We left Ottawa on Tuesday the 20th drove 54 miles to Prescott Ontario. Checked into a beautiful campground for 2 nights, wow, electricity, sewer and water, all in one place. We are just going to veg for a couple of days before heading to Montreal.
The campground is on the St. Lawrence River, just across from Ogdensburg NY. The campground had Wi-Fi for a charge and I posted to the blog the first few days of trip. Hopefully we will find an internet cafe or someplace with Wi-fi so I can upload the next couple of blogs I have written.
The bridge going over the St. Lawrence River to NY. This is the view we had from our MH.
The campground had a resident black squirrel, he new Stormy and Lucy were in the MH, he spent a lot of time outside the window teasing them. Drove them absolutely crazy.
Lucy has a favorite toy, a stuff Mini Mouse dressed in a hula skirt. She fights with it all the time.
Only once did we leave the campground, had to go into town and get wine and beer. A case of beer was $48.00, that will be the last case we buy in Canada. The wine was $12.00, $7.00 more then I pay for the same thing in the states. They really add on the tax to liquor in Canada. When we were in Ottawa we stopped at a little outdoor cafe for a drink, Mike had 2 beers and I had 2 glasses of the cheapest wine they had, the bill came to $30.00.
The weather has been hot and unstable. Ran into many thunderstorms toward the evenings. Late Tuesday afternoon we had hail the size of half dollars pound us for a few minutes, and the rain was torrential. The MH has a little problem during the heavy rain storms, seems to spring a few leaks. That’s okay one more thing for Mike to do. I would hate for him to run out of projects.
We met a wonderful couple from Ontario, they were visiting relatives in the area. Early Tuesday afternoon they invited us over for a glass of his home made wine. It was really good, usually home made wine is just to sweet for me, but this was wonderful. We got to meet their 5 cats. Wow 5 cats in a MH that has to be a little crowded. They do own a house and just travel occasionally, the cats seem to enjoy it.
We had a nice rest and now we back on the road.
