Niagara Canada region visit!

It’s been 10 days since I posted an update and stuff happens. So here’s a recap of the fun.

Breakfast before we leave

We started off our trip with family breakfast at Mel’s Diner Westmount and Ottawa before we left Kitchener. We had prepared our house for sale, however not listed until after the holiday weekend.

Service counters signs always make a statement, don’t you think?

Sicards Service Counter ?

We had a few repairs to haRVey. Because we bought from Sicard RV we decided we would get the best service from them, after all we got great sales service from our salesman Carm.

We arrived and were told us they could help us…. If we booked an appointment two months later in October! Carm helped along with Kathy calling Winnibego head office.

The service was fine by addressing:

  • Fridge door latch opening and dumping content
  • Levelling system not functioning in manual mode
  • One tire valve stem not permitting measurement to be taken or tire to be filled.

Well we had these addressed and Bill worked hard to get our tire valves working well.

BeesOn20 boondocking location

We boondocked at a local farm BeesOn20 in West Lincoln with awesome hosts Stu and Susie. They are hosts with Boondockers Welcome They generously had us in for a super family meal. We got to visit the bee hives and creek.

After two days we headed down to St. Catharines and beautiful Port Dalhousie.

We had a great location to park in Jim and Lisa’s office backyard. A busy weekend with rowing races on the long August weekend. They are also members of Boondockers Welcome.

We had a visit and stay over with our friends Dinah and Clarence. A great opportunity to connect.

Dinah and Clarence onboard

An early morning trip to take Dinah to her Sunday church commitment then a visit to Wingfest visit made for a fun Port day.

Paul and Kathy on Lakeside Beach

My favourite wings were the Parmesan and Garlic.
A second night stay in Port Dalhousie was on the pier. A great sleep and view.

Port Dalhousie harbour

Lots of activity along with Wednesday sailboat races. I got to help launch a sailboat with a crane at the Dalhousie Yatch Club.

Very friendly folks as I walked through and chatted.

Our next adventure was an adventure day in Niagara Falls Canada.

We stayed at Jellystone RV park. It was very poor value for an aged park. It did give us the facility to dispose of our used water and get fresh.

We enjoyed the activities if a Fun Pass and views from the Niagara Wheel.

You want to take one of e 42 pods in the wheel to the top for stunning views. They ate air-conditioned will 360°view.

This also afforded us the first Walmart boondocking experience. It was safe clean and gave us great shopping.

Nothing like a beach day to relax after a long day of walking and exploring. We took off and spent the day at Lakeside Beach.

We travelled to our first Harvest Hosts stay of our trip. Our guests we’re Murray and Lisa Puddicombe.

We were welcome to stay anywhere in the big parking lot of Puddicombe farms.

The next day we travelled to the Lake St dumping station for a free dumping. We then went to our friends Clarence and Dinah. Leah had fun in the driver’s seat.

We were treated to a great dinner out and had a great but windy and wet stay on the Port Dalhousie pier.

Next…. We get kicked off the pier by the owner of Port Dalhousie Yatch Club….. just because.
