I'm Getting Grouchy!

Today we went from Grenville Park at Prescott to Camping Transit in Levi's QC. Andy at Can-Am had told me about a route on the south shore of the St. Lawrence so we decided to try it. We took exit 14 in Quebec to cross the river and it was a good drive, not a lot of traffic. The first 25-30 kilometers were two lane roads, then we picked up Hwy. 30 to 20, then on to Levis, a very pleasant drive without the hassle of going through Montreal.

It was cloudy and cooler this morning but eventually the sun came out and the temperature topped out at 28C, much nicer than the last few days!
Driving in Quebec can be very irritating, how come all the highway signs in Ontario have to be bilingual but Quebec is french only, very frustrating when trying to figure out construction signs! Also, there are no alerts for rest areas, just all of a sudden you are going by them. We missed three today as we were at them before we knew they were there - grrr!

Camping Transit is a nice park but way too expensive at $51/night plus $3/night (cash only) for internet. Now I wouldn't mind if the Internet was blazing fast but it is really slow & half the time you can't get on, another rip off as far as I'm concerned and we will be looking for another park on the way home.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.

On The Road Again

Today was our first day on the road for our trip to the east coast. We didn't get off to a stellar start, we had taken the trailer to Can-Am RV on Wednesday to have the brakes, wheel bearings etc. done and when we left there this morning the brakes weren't working so back we went, they finally got them working and we left just before 11 am. We then had to make a stop at home in Woodstock as John had forgot the lap top computer.

Okay we are now on the way and arrived at our destination, Grenville Park at Prescott, ON about 6 p.m., much later than planned. It is a pretty little park, right on the St. Lawrence River, but a typical Ontario park - overpriced for what you get. For a site with W/E, no sewer, plus one night's Internet it was $36.58, and that is with the Good Sam discount. The Internet is really slow and the $2/night internet charge is for only one computer, it is $2/night/computer! I really am not thrilled with most parks in Ontario but am happy to say our home park, Green Acres Campground in Kincardine, is a really nice park.

Grenville Park

It is time for bed, a long day for me. I can't figure out why, but the posting time showing on my blog is three hours behind, maybe it is on Yuma time so another quirck for me to try to figure out!

And so ends another great gift oh a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.

East Coast - Summer 2012

Due to health reasons, for me, we have been off the road since returning home in April 2011 but on July 6th we are heading out on a trip to the east coast. I will blog while we are gone and we would love to have you join us on our trip.
