was not all that exciting but I was wondering if this is what all the kids will be writing about tomorrow when they go back to school. I'm sure for the first eight years of school this is what we always started with. The same was true for my children.
Anyways, my summer vacation started by celebrating Canada Day in our new house in our ne home town. A few days later we loaded our little RV and headed to Ontario to see my family. I've made this trip several times and there sure are a lot of beautiful places that I would like to experience for longer than an evening.
We were all over southern Ontario visiting relatives. Would loved to have gone to the Distillery District but that wasn't to be this time. We did get to Montreal for a few days. I hadn't been there since Expo '67. Even though I was born in Ontario, I've lived most of my adult life in the west so much of Ontario is 'new' to me. Also spent time with family in the Muskoka Lakes. I did get to visit this site a few times when we had access to the web. Things seemed pretty quiet.
We travelled back through the US. The cost of gas was cheaper and we took some different non freeway roads. As much as I love Canada when you are making the trip almost every year, you have to look for new routes.
When we stop for a rest in small towns, in Canada or the US, I leave DH sleeping and walk around looking at gardens and houses. Each area has it's own unique if minor differences in styles. I met one lady who even gave me a tour of her daughter's house. She'd done a great job of it so I can understand the woman being proud. That was a fun lunch hour.
The only shopping I did was in the windows. Love to look at all the different things.
We were gone for seven weeks. Came back a few pounds heavier from all the good meals and more than a few cold drinks trying to fight the heat this summer. Generally had a good time, but there really is no place like home and your own bed.
This wasn't the most exciting essay but thought others may want to update us on their summer vacation.
