Saturday 10th September 2011…..on the road and a change of plans!!

Well this morning I had two firsts!!!  Karen told me Saturday morning was egg and grits day so I had my first taste of grits and also Nana mint tea, a tea popular in Africa…..the grits were well how do you describe grits??  The tea very minty and sweet….I said my thanks and goodbyes to Karen and Rob they have been wonderful to me…I may be passing this way again next week if not the next time I see them will be in the RV park in San Miguel!!!

My first stop was the very pretty village of Bear River

I then drove onto Digby Neck which is the same road Rob and I took a couple of days ago when we went whale watching and I actually took the same small ferry and continued on the road toward the end of the Neck.

You can see that I am parked almost across from where I was last night!!!

Tomorrow I go back to Paula and Jerry’s..Jerry has an appointment at a body shop for me on Monday to see  what price and how soon they can do the body work on Ramona if this does not work out I shall wait till I get to San Miguel.

There was quite an earthquake on Vancouver Island yesterday Croft said he felt it in Campbell River but Sara did not in Bamfield nor did Heather in Nanaimo…so glad all my friends are OK!!

 

…….Happy Sunday to all!!
