Escapade

Our row…

2010 Escapade 001

 

Monday

I headed to the market area here to do some window shopping. At 11;30 I met up with Kevin and we went over to the Nelson Pavillion for lunch and to meet up with the RV Dreamers that are here. It was so nice to see so many and to put some names with faces.

This is the bakery section  where the Amish are selling their yummy goodies…

2010 Escapade 005

We attended the seminar on the Canadian Maritime Provinces. That was a place I thought we would travel to some day but after listening to the cost of the ferry’s once there, I think we just may need to pass on that destination.  There are many other areas of Canada that are musts on our list.  We have driven through the Canadian Rockies many years ago, but we were in a hurry and didn’t get to stop and enjoy our time. Can’t wait to get back there some day.

After the rally happy hour, 14 of us headed to the Lux Cafe for dinner.  We were a bit late getting back to the seminar on full timing, but did get to listen to a good part of it. This is the seminar that Howard & Linda and Mark and Dortha were participating in.

Tuesday

It was a beautiful day and Kevin got started early polishing the 5er. He spent a good part of the day doing that.  I did some actual shopping today. I came home with a pillow that I get to try for the night to see if I like it.  I can’t wait.. I am ready for a new one. This one conforms to your head and is guaranteed for 10 years. I am also considering the mattress topper that keeps cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  I have a few more things to go back for tomorrow.

Kevin and I then attended the seminar on Electrical System Safety. A few things we already knew and a few that went right over our head!

Once again at 4:30 we went to the happy hour. Mac and Jenny were door prize winners today..congrats!   No one feels like cooking, so once again we all headed to dinner at a Mexican restaurant. I think there were 16 of us tonight.    With all this eating, t’s a good thing there is walking involved in getting around. That is if you don’t hitch a ride on Mac’s golf cart (like I do alot of the time) or jump on the trolley…

Wednesday

We got a late start this morning but managed to head out to do some errands. Our first stop was at the Rise n Roll for a donut. We had to make this stop just one more time!  Then onto pick up a few things in Shipshewana.  We had a few things we needed for the rv so headed to Elkhart and the surplus stores. 

Late afternnon Chuck and Kathy stopped by for a visit. Then we were off for the daily happy hour and raffle.  Back home for dinner in tonight. I attended the 7:30 talk on the Pacific Northwest.  It was excellent and I can’t wait to get to see this area of the country. Hopefully next year.

We are down to just one more day at the rally…Kevin and I volunteered to drive the tram at 7:30am..

I would love to see more of Canada, but the cost of fuel there makes me hesitate. And yes, the ferries in the Maritime Provinces are really expensive too.

It sounds like you are keeping busy.

Don't let the ferries scare you in the Maritimes, unless you are going to Newfoundland you can see it all without doing the ferries although there is a toll bridge to get to PEI, but you only pay one way.

That said we would rather you came to Western Canada and the Rockies anyway.
