Here we go again… to Canada!

Our dear friend Liz

We had been planning to leave Flourtown, PA right after Memorial Day for a four-month sojourn in Serena to Eastern Canada, but when I fired up the refrigerator, I discovered it wasn’t working properly. Week after week passed, wrong parts came and went, and what started as a faulty refrigerator gasket mushroomed into the need for an entire new door. We whittled down our itinerary to exploring only Nova Scotia and possibly Prince Edward Island, and by July 20 we were ready to hit the road.

As they didn’t want us to leave without some fanfare, Arthur and Liz invited us and good friends Pam and Jim for a little going away party. Always the gourmet, Liz prepared a delicious Limoncello Granita, served over a colorful array of fresh berries worthy of any Ristorante di la bella Italia. Darn! I didn’t think of taking a picture until we had all practically licked our plates. Returning home will be easier when we are welcomed back by friends like these.

Getting into to the swing of things, rather than drive back to PA, we decided to spend our first night on the road, boondocking at Camp Costco in Moorestown, NJ. A peaceful night until about 6 AM when the Costco Zamboni crew noisily swept through the lot, cleaning and readying for the day’s business. Taking that as our cue, we headed out to begin our adventure.

    As temperatures return to the 90’s and humidity rises, Canada sounds wonderful! Safe travels.

    As everybody is writting in english, i hace to do something different: que tengan un espléndido viaje, que lo disfruten con gusto y admiración lo que no conozcan y, si ven a Karin Ruggeberg, denle un beso y cariñoso saludo para toda su familia, incluyéndolos a ustedes, estimado Don Manolin.

    Glad to hear you are on the road again. We haven’t gone anywhere because Mary Jane was retiring June 1st, so didn’t plan vacation days, but is still working! We are about to start travelling with our 18yr old Roadtrek, which still satiefies us.

    Hola Corazones,
    so glad you heard Canada’s calling once again! Hope you’re enjoying Nova Scotia. And feliz cumpleanios Manuel!
    Please send pics, I hear Nova Scotia is spectacular.
    Thanks for sharing your travel experiences and postings. Me hubiera encantado verlos nuevamente, igual a Francisco Sunderland, lamentablemente algo retirado de donde yo estoy 🙂 Maybe in the near future somewhere in our ‘shrinking world’.
