Jul 3, 2017 - 50-Point Conservation Area

We had an easy border crossing back into Canada and followed the QEW to route 401 and arrived at 50 Point Conservation Area. The park is between St. Catherine’s and Hamilton. We have a wide open full-hookup site and the park is very nice. Sue is gradually improving and becoming more ambulatory. That made it possible to visit the beach on Lake Ontario a couple of times. There is also a nice 2-mile long fine gravel path that Annie and I took advantage of. Part of the trail circles a small lake in the middle of the park. The weather for both...

Jun 29, 2011 - Grimsby, Ontario

Made it here safe and sound at 10:00 am - no problems with Canada Customs than goodness, thought that with the Texas plate they might want to look for firearms, seams that most Texans carry them.

Oct 8, 2010 - Sunshine and goodbye

The last day of Lynne's holiday saw us visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake for a little shopping. For the first time in nearly a week the sun was shining so it was lovely to wander around the town. Niagara-on-the-Lake even in October still has wonderful floral displays around the town. The next day we said goodbye to Lynne. We hoped she had had a good holiday despite the weather. We certainly enjoyed having her with us. Time to take our tour guide hats off for a while!

Oct 1, 2010 - Autumn colours, Toronto and butterfly

We had arrived early at Fifty Point Conservation Area so after setting up the coach we made our way down to Lake Ontario. It was a lovely afternoon and we enjoyed our stroll along the lakeshore and of course Jenny had to have a paddle at the pet beach. Downtown Toronto was very clear and there was number of Monarch butterflies enjoying the late autumn flowers.

Sep 5, 2010 - Fifty Point Conservation Area

After a day visiting St Jacob’s market and village near Waterloo we moved the next day to Fifty Point Conservation area, near Grimsby, Ontario for a return exploration with Mum of Niagara Falls and area. Fifty Point Conservation area is situated on the edge of Lake Ontario and is ideally located to easily explore Niagara Falls, Toronto and Niagara on the Lake without the extortionate rates charged by the campgrounds in Niagara Falls. The weather for a few days was cold, windy and wet so we explored the local malls. On the Sunday the weather...
