Tuesday August 4, 2009

We had more unsettled weather today, cloud, sun, thunderstorms, rain but only a little bit of each. It was also warm and quite humid at 28C (83F).

Today we decided to get out a bit as we'd been mostly in the RV for the last three days. There are a couple of other RV parks in the area in case we want to come back so we first stopped at Oro Family Campground which is just a ways from here towards Barrie. Unfortunately there are too many trees there.

From there we went into Orillia and went to Hammock Harbour RV park. There we found quite a few sites that would work for us however they only have electric and water and no monthly rate so we'd have to go on their weekly rate of $171.42 plus about $15 for each pump out. Their laundry had only one washer and one dryer (although close to Orillia so I'm sure there's a laundromat around) and the showers were old and not very enticing but it's a possibility. It's right on the water and some of the seasonal sites even have an inland waterway for their boats, quite neat!

It's also close to Casino Rama. So we drove over there to have a look at the outside. Very impressive building! It is a First Nation owned casino. We didn't go inside so no temptations!

On we went to find another couple of campgrounds that we quite a ways outside Orillia. One we found out was strictly seasonal - no transients and the other one didn't look like much so we headed back to Orillia so I could pick up some fruit, then home for lunch via the scenic route.

After lunch we had some thunder so I decided to take a nap during which we had thunder and rain. A real mixed bag!

  1. Donald and I visited CasinoRama last September and saw the Chinese Circus. It was great. Wonderful shows there for good prices. It was really neat to walk around their lobby and other areas - we are not gamblers.
