The Gift Of Today


Hello.  I woke up today in reflection of a year gone by.  It is coming upon a year since Tat and I returned from our North America adventure.  I am very greatful that we made that trip.

I have been ill pretty much since the day we arrived home.  In December we moved to a bungalo just down the street.  It is home.  January started a downward spiral of illness with the last few weeks being quite serious.  I am happy to report that I am slowly on the mend.

Thank you for the many prayers that have been made on our behalf.  God has perfect timing.  Our new home has been a real blessing to us as I am currently using a walker and I have plenty of room to get around.  Please continue to pray for us as we overcome challenges ahead.

To all the singles out there.  Choose your partner wisely.  Life is not all kittens and rainbows.  Marry your best friend.  You may have to trust this person with your life one day.  If you are in a relationship with someone whom you don’t trust….pack your bags….it is not worth it.  I am very blessed to have an amazing partner.

20170910_103949Please pray for our medical professionals.  They are only human and make mistakes like the rest of us.  They need us to pray for them.

We have upgraded our teardrop trailer to a pop-up A-frame.  The adventures will continue in the near future just maybe a little closer to home.

Enjoy and be greatful for each day.  Don’t sweat the small stuff and be kind to one another.


Weekend Getaway


While the good weather is still here, we decided to take off in our trailer for the weekend.  We headed to a small town just outside Bathurst, NB.


Meet cousin Rosemarie and her boyfriend Don.  We had a great weekend with this couple.



We camped completely of the grid next to this piece of paradise hidden in the woods.


Meet Charlotte.

We found this painted rock.  We have hidden it somewhere in our hometown of Chipman for someone else to find.  Good luck.

Psalm 29:11  The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.

By The Atlantic




We took off with our trailer for a few days and headed north.


We spent 5 days at the Val Comeau campground in Val Comeau, New Brunswick. This is a fantastic campground.  Our original site was too open and windy but the staff was very accomodating about moving us to a different site.  Bath houses are kept extremely clean and the grounds very well maintained.  Located on a peninsula.  Dig for clams right off shore, fish for bass or take a boat out a bit for fresh oysters and mussels.  Live entertainment provided every Saturday night.  If you are travelling through New Brunswick with a trailer, this location is a must.  We highly recommend it.





The small town of Tracedie Sheila is located near by to the campground.  We highly recommend the restaurant L’ Entracte.  The food and service were excellent.  We had the most amazing poutine with clams.


This little town has some incredible churches.


We saw quite a few residences with their own lighthouses.


Meet Aunt Roberta and her boyfriend Ivan.  We had a great visit with them…they don’t live far from the campground.



We popped in to see our friends Hal and Janet on the way home.  They own Salmon River Bend Outfitters.  If you are looking to bear hunt or rent a cabin…this is the place to go.

School is starting back which means the summer is over.  We are hoping to get some more time out with our trailer before the bad weather comes.

Colossians 3:15  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  And be thankful.




We spent a few weeks at home.  Our journey has made us rethink what we really need to live so we are downsizing and uncluttering our home.  We took off in our trailer for a few days.  We went to a boler/vintage trailer rally in PEI.  We met some fantastic people and saw alot of unique trailers.  We were one of approximately 100 trailers.




Meet friends James and Kathy…they joined us at the rally.  What a great weekend we had complete with fresh lobster, Acadian food, Acadian music and lots of great people.

We stayed at the campground at Abrams Village, PEI.  This campground is pretty basic but clean and well maintained.  We recommend this place.

Ecclesiastes 8:15  So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink and enjoy life.  That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.

Homeward Bound



We left Brighton, Ontario and continued heading East.  The scenery was so beautiful and green.



All signs and store fronts in Quebec are written in French.









We spent the night at a truck stop and continued on in the morning.


We have made it home.  We will spend a couple weeks getting some things in order and then the adventures will continue.  We will also continue with our homeless project.


Spreading The Love


We spent a week at the Milton Heights campground in Milton, Ontario.  Great location with all the amenities.  We recommend this place.

We then spent a few days in Darlington Provincial Park in Courtice, Ontario.  Located right on the lake with fabulous surroundings.  Staff are very attentive and the grounds well maintained.  We recommend this place.


Meet Tianna.  This beautiful young lady is our grandaughter.  We are extremely proud of the fine young person she has become.  We got to have a great visit with her and her mom Michelle.


Meet Tat’s son Ryan.  We had a wonderful visit with him and his family.


Meet friends Mark and Karen.  Had a great visit with this wonderful couple.

Meet Tat’s long time friend Mickey, his wife Wendy and their son Dylan.  We are spending a few days with them in Brighton, Ontario.

1 Thessalonians 5:11  Therefore encourage one another and build eachother up, just as in fact you are doing.

My Big Fat Greek/Phillipino Party


Meet Nina.  Nina and I have been friends my entire life.  We had a great visit.

Our good friends Louie and Dena invited us to their nephew’s one year birthday party.  We have been adopted into a Greek/Phillipino family.  Boy what a great combination…they know how to throw a party.


Meet Jane.  We have been friends for many years.

Meet June and Mandy.  They work at…they made our trailer.  We own the original “diamond in the rough”.  We had opportunity to pop in for a visit.  Sorry we missed you Steve!


Mandy gave us this great idea to put a canopy right over our trailer.  We added a solid panel and a couple tarps which created a changing area.  Thanks Mandy.

We are camping at Darlington Provincial Park for a few days.  Slowly making our way home.
