A little Fall trip in Ontario

We've been wanting to go for a local trip this month, and with a good-looking forecast decided this was the week. 

After a quick stop in Goderich to pick up a couple of things from the car (parked in the van storage spot), we headed north and east. The GPS took us on some good back roads we hadn't been on before, really pleasant. 

Along the way:

Lots of alpacas, a real variety of colours

The next field over, a bull surveys his realm

Stopping for fuel at a station near Severn Bridge, these red and white devices matched the PetroCan colours. They are a large bank of hi-speed Tesla EV chargers. Unfortunately today we were paying for diesel. Ugh $$. That sign was the gas price, diesel quite a bit more.

We decided on an early stop today, so headed in to Six Mile Lake Provincial Park for the night, all set up by 4pm. This is a nice park, although quite close to the 400 Highway traffic noise. Just a dull noise  though, that soon we didn't hear any more.

Fall is nice for early campfires

Cathie took this about 8:30 pm - lots of stars!

A good night, we didn't even hear traffic overnight from inside the van.




  1. Fall is such a lovely travel time. We're just back from a few days away. Enjoy

  2. Great star pic, but what were you doing up that late?? (Heather)

    1. My mistake, it was only about 8:30. I was already in bed tho. :)). Gord.

  3. I love the star pic too - would make a lovely hooked rug. Seeing alpaca yarn on the hoof is neat. Donna

  4. Neat to see all those alpacas!

  5. Sounds like a great day. Nice star pic!
