We left Rideau Acres at Kingston around 10:30 a.m. and arrived at Rideau Heights Campground in Ottawa around 12:30 p.m. Packing up in Kingston was done in the rain and most of the drive until just before Ottawa was also done in the rain. By the time we arrived at Rideau Heights it started a bit again but didn’t last long so although it was cold and cloudy and the ground is muddy, it quit raining.
We have nice neighbours here at Rideau Heights, Anne and Roger. They came over to see our internet satellite and chatted for a while. They are originally from the Pakenham area and have been fulltiming for 8 years. Their RV is a really big Airstream.
As you can see from the photo, Rideau Heights isn't the nicest campground, but it is in the city and convenient and is full hook-up which we won't have next month when we move to the Ottawa Municipal Campground.
After we got set up, we had a brief nap and then went out for groceries. There’s now a Food Basics at Heron Gate Mall so we started there and then stopped at Loblaws at South Keys. Then home for dinner and a relaxing evening.
