Through Foreign Eyes - Spring/Summer 2009 travel blog


After a pancake breakfast in our stadium parking lot/campground, we bid our fellow rally attendees a fond adieu and headed south to the border. The day was gray and murky, but the drive was brightened by huge fields of bright yellow flowers. We have never seen canola growing before and were surprised to hear that this more healthy oil comes from this part of the world.

A steady stream of RV's was heading north as we came south. A number of them carried the stickers and decals that identified them as being members of caravans. Some of the folks who attended our rally will be heading on to Alaska. We intend to return to this spectacular state as well, but would want to get started long before the middle of July. The caravan itineraries are packed with good stuff to do, but as geezers we would prefer to take our time.

Returning to the US was more tedious than getting into Canada. We stood in line about half an hour behind other RV's, but when it was our turn the agent asked few questions and quickly waved us on. Tonight we are in the same campground we stayed in on the way north. We've picked up our mail, done the laundry, cleaned the house (motor home), and shopped for groceries. Back to reality.
