From Cheryl’s journal: “Something was banging all night from the wind. Couldn’t figure it out. Marcel checked the vent and said it’s still secure. It was pretty cold last night. Will need to start using our duvet again. Windy, cloudy with some sun, but cold like winter in the air.
Crossing over the Ontario border we noticed right away the roads were much smoother. Our poor motor home must feel pretty beat up with all the rough roads it has endured. Still chilly. Got into Timmins, Ontario and stayed at the Walmart. The wind was cold – had a chill to it. Walked over to the mall and had dinner. By the time we came out it was nice. It had warmed up. Bought a jacket and two workout shirts at the Sport Chek.”
