Apr 18, 2008 - Watertown NY to home/Watertown NY à chez nous

We spent Sunday night April 13 at Walmart in Central Square NY. The trip there was cloudy & cool but dry. We arrived at the border about 10:15 on Monday morning. Unfortunately, a snag developed with the U.S. Border Protection Service Agency that required us to wait 3 days before crossing into Canada with the new motorhome. We returned to Watertown NY and spent 3 days at Walmart there. The weather improved tremendously and we enjoyed sunny and warm days. On Thursday, April 17, we resumed our trip. Everything went well and we got home by...

Sep 20, 2007 - Watertown, New York

We went through Watertown today, noted for being the birthplace of my sister Betty while Mom was at a nearby Army base while my Dad was serving in Italy in WWII in 1943. It's also a good point to put on my map being where we would have run into Lake Ontario had we not turned south. Well, this was my morning!! We decided we could make a late enough start so I could run over and do the bobsled ride. It was great - too bad for Gregg that he doesn't get along well with roller coaster ride type things. I loved it! The drive through more of the...

9-12-06 Greetings from Woodville, New York! Yesterday we spent the whole day visiting Niagara Falls. We find that we are learning that this Country offers so many things to visit, explore, and see, and we may just scratch the surface on our adventure. Niagara Falls exemplifies the point. We arrived about 10:00 AM and went directly to the Niagara Falls Park visitor center, where we purchased a "PASSPORT to the Falls". Inside were tickets to Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, Observation Tower, Festival Theatre, Scenic Trolley, Discovery...

Aug 5, 2006 - Birding, Island Camping, Sackets Harbor

August 3 - Thursday with not much going on. We did get our forwarded mail so we got to catch up on news from Cabot as well as a bill or two to pay. Stopped by Jo Ann's Fabrics for Alice Faye to do some shopping for crafts materials. There was a hair salon next door, so she got her hair cut while we were out. I'm beginning to need a haircut too, but think I will put it off for a while. Went to the grocery store and stocked up and then returned to the park. The heat was not quite so unbearable today, and this evening it was cool enough for us...

Oct 3, 2005 - What a day getting to Association Island

We left the campground on time with the anticipation of crossing the border during the morning giving us time to shop in the afternoon. However we get several miles along the road and found ourselves in a queue .As we inched forward we realized the road ahead had been closed for a marathon. After we had spoken to the local RCMP officer we sat and waited until the road was re-opened. Two hours later we got on the road. We got to the border and we got a third degree by the American border guards and the coach was searched. We eventually got...
