Sunday October 11, 2009-Now at Sherkston Shores

It was cccccold this morning at 1C (34F). I was up at 5:30 a.m. Practically unheard of for me but I wanted to be sure that I would be ready to leave at 8 a.m. And I was! But someone else wasn't so we didn't get on the road till about 8:15 a.m.

I took this panorama on the KOA road when we were out warming the truck up this morning.

More Fall leaves on our way this morning


We were still going through Toronto before 10 a.m. At least it was bright and sunny for our whole trip. There was quite a bit of traffic probably because of Thanksgiving weekend but it all moved well and we had no delays.

Going through Toronto

We arrived at Sherkston Shores about 11:35 a.m. and were on our site and set up by about 1 p.m. However the park is very busy and we couldn't get a 50 amp site when we checked in so we have to move tomorrow. This is also a very small site for our rig. Since the forecast is for near freezing at night and single digit celsius temps this week we need the 50 amp!

Our site for tonight


We're also giving serious consideration to crossing the border a week early. We'll decide later in the week as I'll have to make arrangements to do so with our travel medical insurance broker. The long range forecast for Sunday the 25th which is the day we planned to cross originally is for rain and wet snow and we don't like traveling under those circumstances. The weather might change in 2 weeks. Do we want to chance it?

After we got set up we relaxed for a while then drove down to Lake Erie. It was so cold and windy I didn't want to walk. The site we're at is farther from the lake than where we'll be for the rest of the week. So hopefully I'll get to do some walks around the park this week. I've missed my walk the last two days with getting ready to get on the road.

The Quarry and the beach


We had an early dinner tonight as it looked like there would be a pretty sunset. We went to the beach about an hour early to take some photos.

Overlooking the Lake

Pretty clouds


We walked on the beach, it's a very big beach! These park models have an awesome view!

It was indeed a very pretty sunset!

And the sun sinks slowly into Lake Erie.....
