Monday August 10, 2009-Arrival in Lindsay, ON

We had quite a little storm last night with wind but no damage thank goodness and it produced a beautiful double rainbow so we went out to Lake Simcoe to take some photos but it had pretty much faded by the time we got there

And when I looked at my photos I realized I got the lightning in it too

Sunset - very dark clouds

I was up early this morning, early for me that is, it was already 100% humidity which is not normal for this area, thankfully it was only about 23C (73F) at the time. By the time we left Heidi's Campground at 10:35 a.m. it was 26C (79F) but there was a bit of a breeze. The skies were threatening but we didn't have any rain.

Due to the slow moving tractors and wagons on the road today it took us 1 1/2 hrs to go 60 miles (100 km).

I did manage to get a barn photo along the way

We arrived at Double M RV Resort at Lindsay at noon and found out that they had overbooked our site so we're in an electric and water only site till Friday then will have to move again. The good thing about this site is we have a better view.

Arriving at Double M

After we got set up I went into town to run some errands, came back and called my sister who has a cottage here to let her know we'd arrived.

Our temporary site (till Friday)

Looks like we might be in for a storm or two here tonight. There have been a lot of them in this area some of them pretty bad. My sister said they had one last Wednesday that knocked down trees and power lines. A friend of theirs lost their garage and a Titanium that's always parked at a house down the way had a tree come down on it. Power was off for a long time. Sure hope we don't have any of that when we're here!


  1. Golly Sandra, I hope you don't have any storms like that!
    What a rare picture, double rainbow and double lightening all in one shot. I doubt if you could do that again, if you tried. I wonder if Gordon will steal that one, and offer it for sale?
    Very lovely area. Thanks.
