Mar 10, 2018 - Week 12!

Hey friends! I'm back with a few more updates (Y) Having a relaxing weekend and staying in Guelph (for once) so I thought today I would do some exploring around here. Went to the Art Gallery, Farmer's Market and a few of the old parks and churches that are around downtown. Finished up with a cheeky sesh at the board game cafe which was cool. It's actually a really beautiful place during the day haha have only really managed to see downtown at night, oops! St Patick's Day a really big deal here so next weekend will probably be written off...

Hey friends! I'm back from Cuba - was such a good time.. honestly the first time anything but my face has seen the sun since I was in Australia! 27 and sunny everyday was such a treat, doesn't matter if I was drowning in my own sweat from the humidity :') went to Havana and Varadero mostly and went snorkeling in the Bay of Pigs which is super cool! Saw lots of cool colourful fish around the place and their habitats were crazy. Uploaded some pics on Facebook for you to have a look at - I have been very slack with my uploads/picture taking...

Nov 4, 2012 - North of the Border

I drove through few snow showers while traveling across US 20A from Geneseo to Buffalo. No serious accumulation, just enough to keep the roads wet and wht wipers on. While passing through Batavia, NY,I saw 3 air plane murals - one from Vietnam, one from Korea, and one from WWII. Not sure why they are there, but the wings look weird. The Buffalo area is a treasure trove for DDD. Since it was lunch time when I passed through i decided to stop at Grover's, but it was closed on Sunday. I headed to the Lake Effect Diner. It's a real silver diner...

Jun 28, 2010 - Mission Accomplished!

Today's destination would stamp complete on a chore that started back in January on our trip to Costa Rica. Our guide, Allan, had a set of binoculars, 8X40's, made by Eagle Optics that were fantastic! They were so great that it was Marilyn who said we had to get a set. So upon returning to Campbell River I went on a search to see where we could get these in Canada and discovered the Canadian distributor in Guelph, Eagle Optics.CA! So befor edeparting the campsite this morning, even before stopping at Tim Horton's!, their address was entered...
