Trip to Napanee, Part 1

No, the first photo isn't Napanee!

The kids are having quite the time in Rhotia Valley Tented Lodge, in Tanzania. They are there a week. They have access to regular wifi now. That is a relief for me!

It was down to 10 C. overnight over there, and the pool is quite chilly. Other than that, they seem to be having fun, according to their commentaries and photos!

We decided to take off for the day, Friday. Sunny, not too hot. Another adventure. We've haven't been on the road for a month. I've conquered my bronchitis, thankfully.

Off to Napanee for lunch. One of our favourites, on the water, The Waterfront Pub. Yesterday, I showed the birds and turtles we saw after lunch. [Napanee – the river, Part 3]

The roads were busy for a Friday morning! People out golfing. It was a lovely morning, not too hot.



This is a lovely arrangement of wood, with an amazing red door. I'm not quite sure what its purpose is.


More scenery.


And signage.




Everyone is taking off hay!

Sunflowers galore!


It's been so hot and dry. Burn bans prevail.


I love murals!

Ta da!


By the time we drove home, there were clouds in the distance. We were hoping for rain at home. Sadly, there was none there.


Into Westport on the way back.




Next, lunch, then, the winery on the way home. Stay tuned!

Napa nee is a nice town to visit. I"m missing our day trips, but should be out and about soon. It's now 3 weeks after surgery and I'm progressing really well. That is quite the adventure the grandkids are having.

Another delightful drive. I grinned when I saw the girls next to the cactus tree; I have a photo of me (slightly older, but not that much) taken in Kenya in much the same pose!!! YAM xx

Can't ever go wrong with a waterfront pub. We went to the Shinglmill Pub on Powell Lake this week and had to wait for a table outside, unheard of. But that is the way of summer Fridays and we tend to forget since the rest of the year it is so quiet. - Margy

Lovely drive, it does look dry.
