Ottawa

Family, friends, sunshine and ice cream.

We are in Hudson, QC today for more of the same.

Everyday gets a little hotter, and the weather man says it will continue to climb this week.

We will head back to Toronto this afternoon, taking as many breaks as possible along the way.

Murphys Point

Getting ready for the beach, at Murphys Point. We stopped yesterday in Cobourg for lunch and a break at the beach. Dark clouds started to buildup, so we packed up and ran for The Peach. With the wind howling, we sprinted across the park, just before we reached the bus, a very large old oak tree came crashing down. It narrowly missed a parked car but did take out a street lamp. A few tears out fear, but we were unharmed and now that is all the kids are talking about.

Heading to Ottawa today, after lunch.

Go East

Plan to head East tomorrow, for a little more camping and summer fun. We will go as far as Hudson, QC and many points in between.
There are a few photos of our Bruce Peninsula trip in the album, more to follow.

To the beach.

Everyone is still sleeping, except for the chipmunks. The battle royale continues with those two, with no clear winner in sight. Our youngest has her money on the one with the white spot on his side, but this morning I saw his opponent pulloff a roundhouse, with no effort. A matchup for the ages.
Cyprus Lake was like glass this morning. Today we head for Sauble Beach for lunch. The weather has been perfect so far, fingers crossed for today.

Roughing it?

Starving mosquitoes? Check.  Snakes in the grass? Check. Snakes in the water? Check. Minor burns? Check. Overnight fever? Check. Flys masquerading as bees? Check. Slivers in fingers? Check. 24 hour chipmunk fights / mating? Check. Yup, day one.

On the road...

So far so good. We are in Owen Sound taking a lunch break at Kelso Beach. Kids are splashing around in the water park, and dad is about to nap.

Winnipeg, is a no go. :(

With regret, we won't be making the voyage from Toronto to the 'Peg this week. A disappointment to say the least, however, we still will manage to explore a small part of the Bruce Peninsula, on the Georgian Bay side. There are excuses that cover this change of plans, but none of them mechanical, that is to say, The Peach is sound and ready for action this Monday.
