Now at Tranquil Acres, Carleton Place, ON

We left Double M at 9:33 a.m. under partly cloudy skies and about (18C) 65F. After we got past Peterborough it was sunny until just before we reached Carleton Place then it turned cloudy. We had about three bouts of construction but wasn't stopped for long. There was one accident for which we had to take a detour but it was a short one thanks to a young man who stopped and asked if we needed to get back on Highway 7. I was just setting up Miss Pinky at the time so he gave us instructions and Miss Pinky agreed with them.

Other than that the trip was uneventful thank goodness and we arrived at Tranquil Acres RV Park about 1:20 p.m. and Dave moved us into our site so we could set up before it started to rain. Here are some photos of our site.

Gate that you come through to get into the campground. This view is facing the road.

Dave and Shonagh were here to greet us and even offered to help us set up but we were able to do it ourselves although we are grateful for the offer. We are so happy to be back in our favourite campground in the area! We always feel welcome here. Since we were here last Dave has added wifi and its fast!

We were set up in 1 1/2 hours so we went for a walk around the park and down by the river. Here are some pictures from the walk.

This road takes you down toward the seasonal sites and the river.

Looking from the front of our site down toward the river. The RVs you see are seasonal.

The beach and swimming area.

The area along the river. There are some electric and water sites here but they're rarely used. I think they're 15 amp sites. This area is also flooded in the spring.

On our way we met Dave so went to the office to pay him. We're paid up to October 14th, hopefully by that time we'll know what we're doing as the campground closes then.

We were only back at the RV a short time when it started to sprinkle. So we got everything done just in time.


  1. So in October you should know if you are going to be coming south or staying in the north. Have you ever spent the winter in Canada? I bet it can get cool there. I hope you are able to come down here and warm up with us.

  2. I too hope to meet you this winter. We will be spending the winter in south Texas I think.

    You didn't mention your birthday!!! I saw a post from Dee on the forum that it was your birthday. Hope you had a great day!!!
