Thursday September 1 to Tuesday, 6,

Last morning at Manon and Patrice's place.  We are on our way to Estelle's place in the Notre-Dame-Du-Bon-Conseil.

Manon prepared a big breakfast for us.

Patrice got back from work just in time to wave us goodbye.

Thank you so much for the hospitality. We will miss you.

Before we head to Notre-Dame-Du-Bon-Conseil, we have to "dump" our used water.

From Berthierville to Notre-Dame-Du-Bon-Conseil, we take highway 40 to Trois-Rivière and cross the St-Lawrence to Notre-Dame-Du-Bon-Conseil.  We could have taken the ferry between St-Ignace and Sorel and saved 1 hour but the ferry is pretty steep to get on with our "low" motorhome.  The road is great with very little construction.

Once the motorhome is set up, I install our internet for the first time since we got the new modem.
Everything works fine on the first try.

Estelle talked a lot about the "cottage" they have here.  Let me tell you, it is a great place, quiet, green and no traffic.  Here are some photos of the place and Robert's family.

A special day today.  We are heading to Granby to visit my friend from my teenage years, Odette.
We meet Odette partner in life, Marc.  We spent the afternoon talking about the past and some of the future.  Time flies and we have to get back home.  Another great moment with lots of memories floating in my head.
We will visit again when we come back this way.

Monday and Tuesday September 5 and 6, 2011

Monday and Tuesday are rainy days.

Monday, Estelle and Robert are going back home in St-Jérome.
We are alone in this great place until Wednesday.
With the rain, we are spending our time reading, TV and internet.
Oupps! I forgot to take photos!

A big thank you to Estelle, Robert and the whole "B" family to have welcomed us at your place.

Leaving the "cottage".
Lucky for us that the rain stopped yesterday.  We would have left some pretty deep tracks with the motorhome.

We really enjoyed this place.

Our next destination is the campground Lac Lafontaine in St-Jérome.  But first, a choice has to be made.  With all the construction and delay in Montreal, we chose to do a detour by Trois-Riviere instead of driving trough Montreal.
This detour added an hour of driving but saved us the stress and the possibility being stuck in Montreal.

Back in St-Jerome.  Site 249 for a week.

Once installed, we head back toward Laval to pick up Benoit at the Metro station.  Benoit is spending the night with us.
Estelle, Christianne, Rolland and Suzie came by for a visit.  Boy did we laughed.

After the company is gone, we play around with the camera...

WOW!  What an evening!

Thursday September 8, 2011

Here I am converting a power supply so Benoit's TV will work.
It did not work but when Michele tried, it worked.  She is good!

Time to take Benoit back to his place, he has to work tomorrow.

Benoit, it was great to have you with us.  "Our favorite youngest son".

Yesterday, I spent the day helping Rolland cut fire wood.  After that, we had supper at André and Giselle's place.  And I forgot to take some photos!!!

Today we take it easy, a good book, good wine and a fire!

And we finish this day with a nice cheese fondue

Sunday September 11, 2011

A little shopping at the flea market with my two sisters.

Following shopping, we visit Rolland's home...

Brothers and sisters being serious and not so serious ...

Myself, my brother and two sisters decided to have a nice meal together.  We also used this time to discuss some arrangements about mom.

Once the serious stuff is over, time for the meal.  We sure did have a great time together talking about all kinds of stuff.  Sorry for the not so clear photos of us but the waiter took the photo.  We did the drinking and he is the one taking bad photos...

Monday September 12, 2011

Another easy day.  We had supper at Rolland and Suzie's place.

A really good meal but me and Rolland were still tired from last evening, so it was early to bed...

Tuesday September 13, 2011

Last day in the area for a while.  I use this time to visit my dad in the cemetery

A useful (or useless) piece of info...
The fence around the cemetery was build by my uncle Albert.  That summer, I worked for him for a few weeks and I did the painting of the fence before it was installed.

Our last visit with mom. We went shopping and had lunch.

We spent a few very good hours with mom.

Back at the motorhome, I started on some preparation for traveling tomorrow.  I was stopped 3 times because of thunder storms.

Wednesday, Thursday September 14 and 15, 2011

On our way to Ontario.
One last look at the little Lac at the camping Lafontaine.

We left at about 8 30 am, no problems with the roads other then some small construction area.

In the 1000 Island area, a Parkway parallel the 401 for about 30 km.
Very nice road with lot of view of the St-Lawrence.
Here is one of the view.

Our first night is in Belleville...

... at Wal Mart.

What a view!
We decided to stay at Wal Mart for one night so we can go "shopping" for our campground for the next month or so.

Well! We found one.  A little far from Belleville but nice.  The North Shore RV Park.
On our way there.

First photo of our campsite,  I will add more later.

Until next time, take care...
