I had another great day on the road… Went from Wawa to North Bay, stopped for a visit with friends for a few hours.. then pushed on to Haliburton! I didn’t take many photos… but if you’d like to see some more photos you can look at my trip from a year ago ……HERE! (there are also some awesome shots of the Northern Lights Motel!)
I got to North Bay around 6pm… and I stopped to see my friend Amanda…who was visiting her parents! It was really nice to see her and Ian and her parents… and how could I not mention her little guy!! While driving between Sudbury and North Bay…there was a thunder storm brewing… so by the time I got to Amanda’s parents it just POURED! (I was so happy NOT to be driving!)
Amanda’s Dad BBQed an amazing dinner… (and because of the rain–he put on his rain attire!)Last time I saw Amanda in May… I didn’t get a photo of us… Ian her hubby took this shot… (he’s got mad photo skills)! Thanks Ian… The rest of my trip was uneventful! I arrived at my mum’s just after 11:30pm… I was glad to be free of Milo’s company for a bit!!
Last night I had a bit of a homemade ‘tetris’ game to play! It was great fun, (actually took me like 15-20mins)…and the rain held off until after I was done! I had 4 winter tires… 2 big suitcases; 4 rubbermaid tubs(1 was full)…a green shopping basket filled with stuff… plus two duffle bags–that weren’t really full at all! Oh, plus a piece of artwork.. and my didgeridoo…! But I got it all in my car.. and was able to keep all my mirrors and could see out the back window!!! (yep, I’m THAT good…) hehehe
So you know what the funny thing is? I did this drive EXACTLY a year ago!!! (weird eh).. Apparently this is the time for me to make that trek from Winnipeg to Wawa.. perhaps I have a new tradition that I’ll have to keep up!? I didn’t take any photos today… partly because I just wanted to get to WAWA so I could get back to sleep! hehehe…but if you want to take a look at my trip from last year… take a look HERE !
Before leaving Winnipeg I stopped at Tim’s and got some ‘supplies’… (thanks to friends that gave me some gift certs!!)
I had a long day on the road today! All in all it took me about 12hours and 30mins +1hour for the time change= 13 1/2 hours…. I covered 1182 kms… and got myself to Wawa and the Northern Lights Motel!!
Look who was here to greet me? –you’ll have to wait to see who it was!
*I can’t seem to upload my photos…and i’m ready to sleep… so I’ll have to figure that out tomorrow!!! 🙂 check back for that update! 🙂 Sarah
**edited–to add the photos from the day!! 🙂
This pizza was yummy… it’s just so sad it took close to 50mins to arrive… (I think they had to go to Italy for it… and people that arrived AFTER us, and ordered… they got THEIRS first… weirdness!)
