Liam - Mayhem throughout the streets

Mayhem throughout the streets.

We woke up in the morning, and everything was soaked, so we quickly packed up, and left.

The first thing we did that day, was eat a rip off lunch in a place called Sault Saint Marie, right across the river from the U.S.A.

After that we went for gas at the gas station, and then kept driving.

We kept driving to Sudbury, and decided to come straight back to Toronto, so we got a pizza at, PIZZA PIZZA!!!!

Then we went to see a big nickel, that was made, because they mine nickel there.

Then we drove for a long time on the highway. It was really nice, we were the only car on the road, and there was very nice scenery.

When we arrived in Barrie, it started raining really hard, we could hardly see, then there was a lot of lightning. Everyone on the highway was going very slow, everyone had their emergency lights on, and there were a lot of people pulling over to the side of road, so we did aswell.

There was a radio antenna around three hundred metres from us, and you could see the lightning hitting it,  after it hit it, you could see smoke rising from it.

After we pulled over we went back on the road, we were worried we might get hit by a car.

Finally the storm passed, so it was a nice drive the rest of the way.

When we got back, it was 12:00 PM, we parked the car at our grandmas and then walked back, and that was the end of our trip.



Kai - Northen Ontario

                The morning after the thunderstorm,  we woke to find everything soaked. The chairs, the tents, and everything on our table. We packed all of our muddy gear and then took off as soon as we could. Nothing really happened at all that day except for the long drive. Our only stop was in Thunder Bay, where we went to Subway for dinner. That restaurant is always good.
                After Thunder Bay we kept driving until we decided to go to this place called Sleeping Giant that was way out in Lake Superior. On the drive there, we saw a little cute porcupine. I wanted to go hug it, but I knew that that would result in extreme pain. So I let it be.

                 We picked a campsite that was right in front of a lake and had a great view. While we were there, we decided that Sleeping Giant was our favourite campground yet. The water was warm and for once it wasn’t buggy! So we put up our tents and then had a nice fire.

                That night, when Liam and I were in the tent, we saw the shadow of what looked like a deer outside of our tent. It had four skinny legs and it looked like it kept bending over to get grass, and also it was making a weird noise, but eventually we fell asleep.

                The next morning, we woke to find our dad yelling “Get up, get up quick we need to go!” We got up and found that it was raining there was thunder. So we packed our bags and were about to leave when it suddenly stopped. So we went on a quick hike there and then left.

                On the drive, we stopped for my dad to get coffee from a truck stop. He said it tasted horrible. After a bit of driving, we came to a lookout where I had had my picture taken when just me and my dad went across Canada. So we took another picture. After that we stopped at a really nice beach for about fifteen minutes. We walked up and down and then got back into the car. We drove all the way to Wawa and got my second picture with the goose.

                After all that entertainment, we went to a campsite at rabbit lake. It was fairly nice. We sat by the lake, had dinner had a fire and then went to sleep.

Se ya tomorrow!

Liam - Leaving the Praries

We left Oak lake in the morning, and were driving past Winnipeg in the afternoon, it was just a normal city from the looks of.

This was going to be our last day in the prairies, so we had to really enjoy it.

It was really cool, because al of a sudden the prairies just ended, and it turned into forest, so we knew we were getting close to Ontario(We entered Ontario around twenty minutes later, you could really tell a difference between the prairies and Ontario.

As soon as we entered Ontario we stopped at a visitor center to ask were the best camp sites were, then we left.

We went to a place called blue lake, it was really nice.

While we were setting up the tents, we heard a moose making a weird calling noise, so I went to look for it but I couldn’t find it.

After we were all done getting the tents ready, we went down to a stage to watch a movie about spiders, it was really cool, and kind of freaked me out.

After the movie, we had a fire, and with the fire we had jiffy pop(pop corn.)

After that we went to bed. During the night, there was a lot of thunder and lightning, it was really bight, loud and close.

Well, that’s the end

Kai - Saskatchewan

Wednesday 31 August

                We started our morning with a swarm of wasps. It was a huge effort, trying to eat our breakfast, and putting away our tents, but we were extremely thankful when we finally left. The camp ground was really far out of our way so it took quite a while to get back on the road, and once we got there, we had to stop to get gas and for my dad to get his coffee. When we were pulling into the gas station, we saw a little cute prairie dog! It was the first time Liam has ever seen one. After that we went to a Walmart. We bought groceries and we looked around a bit. On the way out we saw some people sleeping in a tent in the parking lot. Who knows why though.

                We drove for quite a while, and the next big town we got to was Moose Jaw. We all thought, “who would want to name a town Moose Jaw?” We just drove through it though. After Moose Jaw, we got to Regina. The view of the city from the highway wasn’t very nice because they were working on the highway and there were lots of dump trucks. We only stopped for a minute and then kept driving through the flat prairies until we finally came to Manitoba. It was Liam’s first time. Right when we got in, we went straight to a visitor centre to find out about camping. The women told us to go to the Four Seasons Resort by Oak lake.

                It was about thirty minutes to get there and it was on an island. when we got there we paid, put up the tents, got wood, and then Liam and I got slushies and then drank them around our small fire. Liam and I then went to bed.

Good night.
