2nd Last Night of Camping Adventures in Aug 2012's Roadtrip

So, the second camping adventure on the way home from Alberta happened in Ontario, north east of Dryden.  Nicest people in the world in Dryden, a little town of 8,700(ish) people, but, the people have the BIGGEST hearts anywhere.  We did a Social Media Seminar there a year and a half ago, we do a lot of seminars now, but, I still remember the quality of people we met there, they had us to their homes,. They all have an exceptional pride of place.    
 We found another Provincial Park, this one calls Sandbar Provincial Park.  The sites are very nice, the electrical sites which back on to the water are my favorite, they each of had their own path going to the water.  If you can, get 7e when you are there, however, any of them are wonderful.  The campsite is small, so, nothing is far from anything.  They had nature trails, I don’t do well running on nature trails, as there are routes and such, as I have depth perception issues to start with, I trip a lot.  So, we explored.  Duke and I found the water right away, ok maybe he found it first. We went back to get Jerry, it was too beautiful not to share.  Each camp site on the water side have these little trails to their own beach or water with rocks.


 This is for ANGIE!

 It’s strange, I’ve never noticed Mushrooms before, they are beautiful and there are SO many different shapes and sizes. She is a lovely mushroom! Lady with a hat!

 Duke and I dropped Jerry back off at the Site and went to explore another trail we noticed. It was inland, again a nature trail, we we walked it a little.

 After a meal of porkchops, we watch another movie and slept.  I’m trying to get back into waking up EST, so, I went to sleep at 10:30pm EST time, that got Duke & I intime to watch the sunrise.  

So we took off and went to the water.  We wondered a little, and we left the campsite by 8am as we didn’t have anyplace to run.  Gas prices up here in Upsula, Ontario are insane,  when they don’t post them out side, you know they’re high!  Upsula, Ontario gas price was $1.49/liter as there isn’t competition here.  They said it was at $1.59 in May here, and they’ve been steady at 1.49 since, ouch! It was only $1.08/liter in Alberta. In Kenora and Dryden was $1.26, we should have filled up then! This is definitely the highest we’ve paid.  3 liter difference from our last fill yet, $48 difference in price! OUCH!  We take 155liters to fill up, thank goodness we weren’t empty. 

High gas prices, no Timmy's and no internet equals BEAUTY, as the next part of the drive is the MOST beautiful on this Roadtrip!
