HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY AMERICA!

Congratulations to all Americans!


This is the first time that I will not see the great fireworks over at Eastport,Maine. We have lots of American neighbours celebrating the big day on Campobello Island and the wonderful eastern summer.
Right now Hurricane Arthur is moving up the east coast and we just hope that it will not cause too much damage in its path. Usually it weakens substantially as it moves over colder waters. But there will be strong winds and lots and lots of rain over Campobello Island.

Right here, on the other side of the country, summer has settled over Alberta and temps are between 24-30C (high 70s to lower 80sF).

How long have you been Rving? Me, I started some 40 years ago and have never regretted it. It’s just the greatest way of traveling and seeing the country. And a great bonus has always been meeting other RVers along the way. But there are newbees out there who have never gone camping before and don’t know too much about it. For those it might be a good idea to rent an RV for their first trips to find out whether this really is something they want to do. There are RV rentals around where one can get anything from small travel trailers to a huge class A motorhome. Right here in Edmonton is https://www.northernlightsvacations.com
where they have travel trailers and Class C models to rent. The company just moved to a new location. Owners, Roland and Brigitta Maag are from Switzerland and they have a lot of European customers arriving at Edmonton Intern’l Airport.  IMG_9099 IMG_9100

  1. This will probably be the first time we won't see fireworks on the 4th either. Oh well ..... I love the sights but not the explosions. Duchess hates the bangs.

  5. There is no firework in Eastport, ME. It was canceled without a new date given. The fog was too thick earlier and now the rain has started. There were some fireworks shot into the clouds from the ferry landing on the island. But they were mostly heard and not seen. Molly hated it.
