Departure day today (Sunday) and after 6 months of sitting still, needless to say we were a little anxious about everything working properly on the trailer. But our worries were unfounded...all 4 slides went in, hooking up to the truck went smoothly, brakes worked...and all tires went round and round LOL!
After saying goodbye to our neighbours, Roly and Carol (and Cody and Bo), we pulled out of our site and stopped at the office to checkout...then we were on our way to the ferry. I was following Steve in our car...the first time we've travelled separately! It was a beautiful, clear day (with the exception of some fog we passed through on the way to the ferry)...but at least there was no smoke!We were very happy to catch the 11:00 a.m. ferry sailing because we had been a little later getting on the road than we planned.
Instead of enjoying the sunshine on the passenger decks we had another fun-filled time on the windowless bottom deck of the ferry listening to car alarms going off. Face masks are now mandatory and as of the end of September Transport Canada will no longer allow passengers to stay on the car decks.
We arrived at Oceanside RV Resort just before 1:00. The office is closed Sundays but I had already paid, so I just stopped to pick up our welcome package, sign a "Covid form" and continued onto our site, #18. Steve had gone ahead of me.
We got the trailer leveled...then realized that our electrical cord wouldn't reach, so had to move ahead a bit. Oops...forgot about checking that; something we usually do! Well, it's been awhile since we've moved!
After unhitching, we both got to our unpack and setup routines. We really like this RV Park...it's just unfortunate this time here, we are unable to have any company, or go down to the beach. The RV Resort is located on a Reservation (Indigenous Peoples) land and they have closed all access to the reservation except those that live on it. There seem to be additional rules that the RV Resort must respect. Oh well, we have a car, so we'll just have to drive to the walking trails...or walk around the resort.
This is the view out the window I have when sitting at the table...for now, until we get neighbours. James Island in the distance....It was shortly after 3:00 when we were all finished our set up...well, all we were going to do for today. So we headed over to Rob and Angie's for a visit. Rob has been busy replacing all of the flooring on the main floor of the house...from carpet and lino to all wood. He has finished the TV room, dining area and most of the kitchen. This is the TV room...(thanks for the pictures, Angie!)...I didn't get any pictures today, but this is one of the living area. He's almost all done this room now. He's done a great job considering it's his first time and it looks great!Angie ordered in pizza and after a great visit, we headed home as the kids were about to get ready for bed...it's a school night! Conner is in grade 2 and Bryce is in kindergarten...they are both doing well and love being back at school!
