A day of rest. We did not do much of anything but rest.

Wednesday, July 4, 2012

Turned the mattress in the Casita and washed the carpet. With the hot days we are having, the carpet dried in no time. In the evening we played cards and watched the New York and Detroit fireworks.

We went to an Escapee RV Club luncheon in the town of London, ON – about one hour and fifteen minutes from Corunna, ON. The restaurant we went to served delicious Chinese food. There was a large group that came in from a funeral and ate also. Seems the man the funeral was for loved the restaurant and wanted everyone to eat there after his funeral.

After eating Rudy, Sharon, Arthur, Judi, Lowell, and I went to Luton to see if I could find headstones for my ancestors. And yes, we did. When we arrived at the cemetery we spread out and each took several rows to search for the Zavitz headstones. Lowell found my great, great grandfather and grandmother, and great grandfathers headstones. Zavits is on my mother’s father’s side.

Many acres of tobacco are grown in this area. And the wild flowers growing on the sides of the roads range from white, yellow, blue, orange, and red.

We stopped at a winery and everyone had a wine tasting. Everyone bought some wine. We continued on to another town (Sparta) to check Vicki's ancestor's records. We got there just before closing time (4:20pm – closing time 4:30pm) but they let us look up records and we took pictures of the records. We were out of there by 4:30pm. What a great day because we accomplished so much, especially fruitful for me.

Stay tuned for more travels and Happy Trails and Hugs to all,

Vicki and Lowell
