Home Again!

Gordon got up for sunrise and went down to the pier in Cobourg and took some photos around the Cobourg East Pierhead Light. For a photo, click here. We didn’t rush to get around this morning. When Gordon went out this morning and started our rental there was a ‘check engine’ light that came up so we called their 1-800 # and they told us to keep driving it that there are all kinds of sensors and stuff that could be causing it. We had breakfast at the hotel, had an hour’s worth of internet time in our room and left around 10:00 a.m. We checked out most of the little parks in Cobourg and we definitely want to go back to the RV park in their downtown area sometime, not because of the parks but it’s just a cute little town (city).

We drove along Hwy 2 till Napanee through all the towns but didn’t see all that much that was worth photographing. At Napanee, we took the 401 back to Rideau Acres. It was sunny and beautiful all the way. Can’t tell you the temperature as our rental didn’t come with all those conveniences. We sure missed the cruise control, temperature gauge, mileage and compass gauges that we have in the truck! Small cars apparently don’t come equipped with cruise control. My sister has a mini Cooper and it doesn’t have cruise either. Can’t imagine being without it now we’ve had it for so many years in all our vehicles.

When we got home, our RV was fine. It’s something we worry about when we leave it which isn’t often. This weekend was a treat, having a hotel room, eating out a lot and not having to tow!

After unpacking, I lay down on the couch to read and decided I needed a nap so moved to the bed and slept for nearly 2 ½ hours. This having a good time makes you really tired!

Thanks for the comment on yesterday’s blog, Laura & Steve. Yes, I did indeed wear a hat (the only person at the wedding that did). One of the older gentlemen commented on it on the way into the church. He remembered when ladies always wore hats to church. I still like hats however there’s not much room for storing such items in an RV nor is there room to wear one while riding in a Hyundai Accent!
