Summer Vacation 2010

Brooklyn at the door peering out ...
Airebella gets a wash and a wax at our full service site in Rideau Acres, Kingston.
Notice the shop vac that made short work of the inside space!

Payton, enjoying her lunch and a water while her sister Maddie plays nearby in Nana's playpen!

Lisa, Derek and the girls getting ready for the second leg of their journey - to go to Montreal!

Airebella and Richard and Reggie at our first site (two service only) at Rideau Acres in Kingston. This site is right by the water!

This year we took a short trip to the St Lawrence, near Cornwall, and to Kingston for a couple of weeks in the Airstream. Every year I look forward to having a day or two to camp with the grandchildren (and their parents of course) and this year was no exception. Because the littlest one, Madison, is only 9 months, we thought it best to make the camping trip close to home so that nap time could consume her little enroute persona and make the car part more pleasant for her parents! It happened that Lisa and Derek had a great trip to Montreal planned so Cornwall and the Parks of the St Lawrence was part way there. We departed Ottawa on the 9th of August and it happened that Lisa, Derek and the girls arrived at the campground ahead of us by about a half hour or so I would say.
This year we also traveled with fellow RVers Bob and Debbie. Richard and Bob fished the St Lawrence and boated on the Rideau Canal near Kingston. Today, as Richard and I took the boat out of the water after a nice little joyride, I thought of another season coming to a close and how lucky we all are to have our health and our wonderful family and friends close by!
We may be headed for the Maritimes in the fall for a week or so but that trip depends on the health of an aged relative there so we will see...perhaps our next outing with Airebella will be heading towards Florida and points South!
