Doctor, RV Dealer & Out for Sunset

I knew I had to get up early this morning consequently I was awake about every hour through the night but was up at 6:15 a.m. and actually didn't feel too bad.

Gordon had a doctor's appointment for 9:15 a.m. in the west end and traffic is murder here between about 6:30 and 9 a.m. We left the campground at 7:15 a.m. a full two hours before the appointment. Here's are some photos of today's trip.

The freeway was backed up forever. I'm sure glad I don't have to travel in this every day.

Much better idea to take the bus

So we switched to surface roads

They were moving much better

We arrived in the area of the doctor's office about 40 minutes early so went to one of the spots that Gordon used to go to after dropping me off at Nortel.

Here's where Gordon usually dropped me at Nortel

Here's Ralph & Sons Diner - not the best name for a restaurant

I even had coffee - decaf only

After coffee, off to the doctor's office where he got in right away although we were early.

From there we went to our RV dealer to take back their electrical cord and pick up ours. The new plug had come in but it wasn't hooked up to our electric cord yet so that was done while we waited.

When completed, we were both tired so came home and had lunch and naps. Most of the day was spent reading or on the computer.

Tonight we decided to do something fun so we went out for sunset. We stopped at a little park along the Ottawa River near us and then drove to Petrie Island.

Pretty scene along the river

This is a path at Petrie Island - we walked this a couple of years ago

It's not a gator
It's a beaver!

Another pretty scene in golden light

Just near sunset

I still feel better tonight, sure hope that keeps up!
