ALGONQUIN PARK DAY ONE
Last Wednesday we hooked up the trailer and headed to Algonquin Park an hour north of Bancroft. Our first stop was the information building just inside the east gate.
Mary loves the north; the rock-cuts, lakes and pine trees combine to make this a magical place to visit. Traffic was light and the views around every bend in the road were spectacular.
By one o'clock we were set up on site 14 looking at the lake through our front door. We had booked on line as the campsites are very popular this time of year. The reservation system is excellent. You type in the length of your vehicle, arrival and departure dates, campground name. One click and it will show you the sites available for your size of RV based on the dates requested. We were lucky, getting a non-electric site adjacent to the beach.
Photos don't begin to capture the majesty one sees looking across the water to the distant hills. This has to be one of the best times of the year to be up north.
Mary, enjoying the sunshine and a good book with our trailer hidden in the trees. We did a lot of this as Mary's broken toe needed time to heal. She tried to stay off it as much as possible and by Friday the swelling had gone down considerably.
The weekend weather looks perfect and we are looking forward to having Leanne and Jamie visit for a few days.
Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
