They Came Via Toronto…

We knew that they would be coming before the end of this month. Indeed we had received a few emails over the last 10 days, the last one was sent off from the Acadia National Park, which is only 3hrs away. Then on Saturday a motor home from CANADREAM rolled up our driveway. They had arrived. It was the daughter of one of Bea’s cousins with her husband traveling all the way from Germany via Toronto. Neither of us had ever met Bettina and Jochen, but they turned out to be the nicest campers you could imagine.

Jochen is quite familiar with North America as he had studied in the U.S. and both have been traveling in British Columbia earlier. Unfortunately, just this weekend the weather wasn’t all too great and Sunday it was raining a whole lot. We went through the Roosevelt Cottage in the morning but spent the afternoon inside watching one sky burst after the other coming down. And that’s a good enough reason to comfort ourselves with lots of good home-cooked food.

Today the weather looked a lot better but we had a very strong and cold northern wind. Yet we all took off exploring the Head Harbour Lightstation and famous viewpoints of Campobello.

Not a day to walk around in shorts though but after all we got outside for a spell. Bettina and Jochen were back on the road this afternoon and even though the sun peeked out we stayed inside as it was pretty cold  outside.

Hopefully we will see these guys again one day.


  1. How fun to meet new friends and know that some day you probably will get to meet up with them again.

  2. Such fun to have visitors and be able to offer them a place to park an RV. A bit too bad about the weather, but you made the best of it.

  3. So nice to meet relatives and make new friends. Nice that you have an Rv parking spot too!
