Ile d'Orleans

First Day trip with everybody on board, the destination was Ile d'Orleans. Great fun was had by all and The Peach ran perfectly.
It sat most of the summer waiting for us to get our act together. One weekend of activities spilled on to the next, so there was little time to get it ready for a required provincial inspection. Eventually though, the oil leaks were fixed up and a set of brake lines replaced in the front, meant that there were no more excuses.
Ile d'Orleans, a perfect day trip spot for us, includes a ferry ride back and forth, a trip across an older suspension bridge, great views etc, plus, you can be back for dinner.

New Plates

10 months in our new spot and we finally got The Peach plated this week. We don't anticipate taking her out on a camping trip for another two weeks. We may need to bring scarfs and mittens at the rate we are moving, still, we are closer.

The Peach made the move with us to Quebec on a trailer... My brother thought this was a little on the sadder side of it's adventures. I was thinking it was a nice treat for the camper to not have to fight down the 401 this late in the season.
Never the less, we made it safe and sound, and it's now in the garage all buttoned up for the winter. There is already a list started with items that need to be addressed before we head out next summer. There is a nasty oil leak that appears to be coming from the push rod tubes, we are going to have to replace those O-Rings at some point.

Fish Stories

His first catch, he made two that day, catching the first and the biggest of the day, both were tasty. This is a stocked pond, that charges by the inch - cheap entertainment and dinner. Click on the photos link on the top right to see some more.

We're back in Toronto for now, summer camping trips are all but over, with just one possible overnighter next weekend, near Elora Gorge.

Busy Busy Busy

The Peach outside the house, waiting.

There are some new photos posted from our last trip, click the link on the right to see them. We are moving and this has kept us from doing any real exploring, other than day trips around town. We may have something up our sleeve later this week...

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.
