Visitor from the Canadian West

A couple of weeks ago there was a tweet on Facebook that someone from Alberta was coming to Brockville, Ontario to visit a relative. We scrambled around with our calendar to see if we could make a visit with us happen. Usually we're wide open but the last couple of weeks with the flooring going in and preparing for my sister to arrive this coming weekend and my cousin coming from England to see us it's been a busy time. That on top of doctor's visits and my bum shoulder. Anyway, today was the day!

The visitor is Brenda Brown. I had no idea she had relatives within about 40 minutes from our house. We chatted back and forth about her coming to us or us going to her. We decided that Gordon and I would go to Brockville. Arrangements were made for us to pick her up at her nephew's house.

After picking her up we headed west on the Thousand Islands Parkway to Gananoque. Picked up some coffee and water at Timmie's and went to the park. Here are Brenda and I at the St. Lawrence River.

We spent an enjoyable couple of hours together, then dropped her back at her nephew's place and headed for home.

Although we've known each other through the rv-dreams chatroom, Facebook and one brief meeting in Kerrville, TX in 2009 it was great to get to know her better. She says next time JB is coming with her! Hope to see both of them soon!


  1. We have met JB but haven't met Brenda yet. That was a surprise to see Brenda over on the East side of the country.

  2. So that's where she got to! lol

  3. It is always nice to meet up with friends again. Looks like you had a great day weather wise for it as well.
