Friday May 22, 2009

I got up later this morning, the sun was gone and showers were in the forecast however we only got a few spits of rain. I had a nice walk down the country side road and I'm glad that I'm now back into my running. Whatever I'm doing, my cholesterol was lower than last year and my doctor said that whatever I'm doing, "keep it up"!

After breakfast I changed the bed and got the laundry ready to go into Carleton Place. There is no laundry here at the campground. Carleton Place has one of the nicest, cleanest, most comfortable laundromats that I've seen in all of our travels and the pricing is still fairly reasonable (for Ontario).

After laundry, I stopped at a couple of grocery stores and actually found nectarines! Bonus!

Then it was back home to unload everything and have lunch. Then Gordon decided he wanted to go into town to look for a small hard drive for the enclosure he has so we went and stopped at the camera shop where he is looking into a new camera. The guy at the camera shop said that Walmart or Staples might have the hard drive so we went there but no luck. We'll have to look next time we're in Ottawa. We also took a little drive around the area to the Jock River and then to the little town of Appleton.

Tonight we're having the chef's platter of leftovers for dinner and fresh cantaloupe!


  1. Such pretty

  2. You got your nectarines, I thought we were going to have to mail you some. But the customs folks would have killed that idea. LOL

  3. Best Buy has USB hard drives on sale right now in their weekly flyer. Now external power supply required. $120 I think for 350 GB.
