Back in Ottawa Again

Today was bright and sunny for a change so I went for my walk even though it was cold -2C (35F).

As we were scheduled to leave for Ottawa we got packed up and left the campground in St-Martin-de-Beloeil at 10:50 a.m. It was quite a drive through Montreal but Gordon did really well and the traffic wasn’t too bad. We had decided to take Hwy 20 to the 401 and 416 into Ottawa so we arrived at Rideau Heights Campground at about 2:15 p.m. It was mostly sunny for the whole trip. It took till nearly 4:30 p.m. to get set up and when we were done with that I headed out to go to the chiropractor and pick up some groceries.

At that time of day rush hour traffic was in full swing so it took me almost an hour to get from the campground to the chiropractor’s office so I only made one stop to pick up a few items after that then headed back to the RV as I don’t like driving in the dark. I got home around 6:00 p.m.

We’re both tired tonight and since I didn’t get to a real grocery store, the choices were to go out or have left over spaghetti. Gordon decided he was too tired to go out so left over spaghetti it was along with some fresh green beans that I bought at the fruit and vegetable store that I stopped at.

Now we’re settled in to watch TV for the evening and get rested up. We’ve got a lot to do this week to prepare for heading south next Wednesday.

I expect you’re tired of seeing photos of our site at Rideau Heights so today’s photos are ones I took along the highway en route.

  1. Welceome back to Ottawa. I can't believe that in 3 days you will begin your annual southern trip. It seems like a few weeks since you got back
