FROM THE DISTAFF SIDE: Robert and his dad went on a boat tour of The 1000 Islands in the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Unfortunately, my groom of 38 years forgot the camera so I've been elected to do the blog and add the photos taken with his phone. As for us ladies in Freeport, we had a wonderful dinner at Imperial Diner.Jump to full entry

Well after much adieu Dad and I left with Shirley looking after Herta and hit the road. We drove to Lutz house in PA, packed up and left. We stayed our first night in Cooks Falls NY just off Rt. 17.

A tad disappointed that we are not river side at Wellesley...Jump to full entry

Jun 28, 2007 - Back To the U.S.
Thursday, June 28th, we are heading back to the U.S. Hi again to everyone. We left the Milton Heights Campground in Ontario on Monday, June 25th. We headed northeast on Canadian highway 401 at a crawl. We traveled the 60 miles to Toronto in heavy rush hour traffic. Once we got through Toronto the traffic got much lighter and we were able to travel at the speed limit which is 100 kilometers per Hour (about 63-64 mph). When we got to the 1000 Island area we left Canada by the bridge to Wellesley Island and I-81 which is on the New York side...Jump to full entry
