Newfoundland 2013 travel blog

Today is Saturday, June 8, 2013 and we are in the final stages of preparation for our sojourn to Newfoundland. Everything is packed except for the refrigerator which we will finish loading tomorrow with a few things Monday morning just before we head out.

This afternoon we are traveling to Pelican Point Campground in Half Moon Bay, California but we are not taking our motorhomes. Our traveling companions to Newfoundland, Elden & Cherie Ables, are also traveling to Half Moon Bay but the four of us are driving in a car. The purpose is to join our Concord Caravanners camper club for dinner since we were not going to attend the entire weekend outing.

Tomorrow Ross & Marge will be visiting their daughter's home in Walnut Creek, California to celebrate Father's Day and our grandson Paul's birthday. With our travels these past few years we never seem to be home for Father's Day or Paul's birtday, and this year is no exception, only this year we will celebrate both events in person only earlier since Father's Day and Paul's birthday are both later in the month.

Our trip will take us to Gillette, Wyoming where we will attend an FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association) rally from the 18th of June to the 23rd of June. From there we head to Forest River, Iowa and the Winnebago Factory where our traveling companions will have some work done on their motorhome. Marge aed Ross will travel about 100 miles south to Ames, Iowa where will visit friends and then return to Forest River to meet up with the Ables.

From there we will be traveling to Niagara Falls and then crossing into Canada where we will proceed to Marge's home, Fredericton, New Brunswick where we will spend a few days so that Marge can finish closing her sister's estate. From there we head to Pictou, Nova Scotia, and depending on the time available, we may spend a couple of days before we head to Baddeck, Nova Sotia where we join an Adventure Caravan's Maritime Tour to Newfoundland and Labrador.

As of this moment we do not have any solid plans for the return trip. Ross and Marge would like to visit family and friends in Massachusetts and New Jersey and while Ross and Marge are in New Jersey the Ables may visit relatives in Maryland.

That Is It For Today,

Ross & Marge
