Well, it has been 2 months now...yes, 2 months ago today we set out on our journey! Wow, the time has just flown by! And what a blast we have been having! We’ve travelled 5277 kilometres and our fuel mileage has worked out to 8.3 miles per gallon...yikes...but we have been told by those with diesel engines that our mpg should increase as the engine breaks in....HERE’S TO HOPING! We’ve had a few bumps along the way but it’s all been good and we are looking forward to many, many more months...and years! Although it has seemed like we were just on a long vacation, I think that it is starting sink in now...we are actually retired! We seem to be settling into this retirement thing quite nicely!
Our plan for today had been to go to Grey Owl`s cabin, however, when we realized that it was an 8.9 km hike one-way, we changed our minds...don`t think we are really up for an 18 km hike! Instead, we decided to drive to the Bison Enclosure and Lake Audy.
After the drive through the Enclosure, we stopped at the Audy Lake campground and then continued onto the Audy Lake Dam. This was also the trailhead for some very long hikes and there were a couple of Canada Parks people with horses preparing for a ride. A horseback ride...that would be fun...I’d love to do that! I’ll have to check into that.
It was 5:30 by the time sat down to relax with a bevie. It had been a beautiful day...the hottest here so far...and it was a lovely evening.
