Before we left Shore Drive, our neighbour, Barbara, invited us to dinner. That was Sep 4th.
Little did we know, she had planned a surprise party!
We walked into the Osprey Ridge Golf Course clubhouse to find our neighbours, and kids too!
Bed to the left, juicer, microwave, toaster, and fridge
All set to go!!
Barbara ("Babs"), the Mastermind!!
Jennie and I left Nova Scotia a week later on Sep. 11, 2014.
For the next 20 days, we drove across this great country. Each night, we camped in an RV park/campground, except for the few days we spent with our good friends Eli and Mary in Espanola, ON. Eli and I go back to when we were kids in and around Downsview, ON.

Mattie was always first in the van (she did not want to be left behind), but this day I forgot to push the UP button on the lift. So she decided she didn't need the lift anyway, but......
A few minutes later, I came around the van to find her "stuck."
