Rainy Day Visit With Friends

(Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada) Hi 71 Lo 64, Rain --  It was just cloudy when we first got up but by noon it was raining. It's been awhile since we've seen rain in our travels.

Last night Sandra and I were on chat with Elaine, and we made arrangements to meet today.  Elaine and Rick picked up their new to them motor home in the Toronto area and are on their way to White Lake.  They agreed to stop at Smiths Falls, and we met up with them in the Wal-Mart parking lot. We were lucky to see them while we're here.  We've been on the RV-Dreams chatroom for quite some time and it's great to finally meet them.  They are from New Brunswick and starting out on their full time journey.  Thanks so much Elaine and Rick for stopping by to see us.

We visited with them for an hour or so, then we parted with hugs and goodbyes and went back to Sandra's and Gordon's. Sandra and I did some t-shirt braiding and the guys worked on photoshopping  some of Jim's pictures. By then it was dinner time so we went Manhattan Bar and Grill, a local place just down the street. Jim and I had pizza, Gordon had a burger and fries, and Sandra had a salad. All of it was very good!

It was a nasty day to be out, but it was great to meet another Canadian couple that we've been chatting with for more than a year.

When you finally meet other RVers you've only known online, it seems like you are old friends immediately.

RVers are the best, and it's always a special treat to meet them in person.
