Iâ€™m starting to collect â€œon the roadâ€ photos – just a couple of front seat pictures that show the difference in the areas that we are traveling. (If nothing else, it will show whether or not my plant grows!)
This is from one of our first legs â€“ heading to New England-
Here we are in Vermont, headed to Burlingtonâ€¦..
And here we are in Ohioâ€¦..
Our stop at Presque Isle State Park was fun! I had never been to Lake Erie (or generally that side of the state!), so I was impressed with the area in general. Iâ€™m beginning to understand why these lakes are called the Great Lakes!
And here are a bunch of confused seagullsâ€¦..
Georgian Bay was amazing. While I know we only touched a small portion of the bay, I do believe that the area we were in was indicative of the Bay as a whole. We drove two hours north of Toronto, parked the car and then took a Â½ hour boat ride out to Bill and Susanâ€™s island cottage. Here is just a sampling of the shots I took. The days were bright and sunny, but even in the early morning mist the beauty of the islands shone through.
The view from the porchâ€¦â€¦
From the other side of their island â€“ looking more into the Bay
Another cottage we visited, tucked in the rocks on the left.
“Just” some other incredible viewsâ€¦.
We crossed into Canada over the Thousand Island Bridge. The views going over that (very) high bridge are impressive â€“ even on a gray day.
Here it is looking out of my window â€“
And here it is looking out of Garyâ€™s â€“ mind you, heâ€™s keeping his eyes on the road!
I have been terribly remiss in taking pictures of family and friends as we have proceeded on our adventure. How I wish I had taken some shots of my Canadian family – my Dad’s widow, Jo Dwinell and her three children. While we were in Canada they included us in an engagement party and opened their Georgian Bay cottage (see my travel pictures for photos of that area).
I got a shot of Jo, Gary and I, but other than that the best I had in my stash of photos was a group of heads swimming in Georgian Bay. So….
Here are the three of us sitting in Lizzie…
And here are those heads…..
