My Family

 

We spent a few days at the KOA in Barrie.  This place is extremely kid friendly with lots of activities to keep them occupied.  Very clean, well maintained and staff are very friendly and accomodating.  We had opportunity to share our music with the campers.  We highly recommend this place.

We spent a night at Carol’s Campground in Sudbury, Ontario.  Most campgrounds have a designated 7 to 8 hour quiet time…here it is 13 hours long.  This place is very clean, well maintained and is the perfect site if you have a boat or love to fish.  We recommend it.

We continued to head South East.  We enjoyed seeing many inukshuk and were quite amazed by some of their locations.

Meet Mark.  We met Mark shortly after crossing into Manitoba.  Moncton, New Brunswick is home for him.  Currently he is homeless.  We were able to bless him with a few needed items.  Mark was very excited to see a bible amongst the items. He wanted everyone involved to know that the items received were very much appreciated.
