dearest teach mary...we are finally home from out west and here is our first ruby tuesday.
we never forgot you!...........love terry and bernie

the first day of our vacation, the little red car drove us to north bay and because we left welland 4:30 in the morning and because of the darkness, i really couldn't take pictures until we reached our first campsite of the trip.

now these little fellows were very interested in the red tent that bernie had set out on the ground.

they came out from their watery home and started to investigate the whole situation.

finally, after satisfying their curiosity, they jumped back into the cool flowing stream, to join their parents.
bernie started for the first time on our trip to put up the ruby red tent.

here now was our home away from home that we would be living in as we made our way out west to my beloved manitoba!

Wow, The two of you are really troopers. I'm honored to know such a sporty couple.

what a wonderful tent and it does look like a little house on the prairie--I hope you will tell us all the tall tales of your journey- to think that you made it to Calgary and I live a 100 miles north of Calgary- was there in March- it seems a big city to a little town gal-
welcome home from Meme

Dear Terry,
How happy I am to see you are back in welland, as well as on blog land!

I have missed you, and for sure, so have all your other blog friends!

What lovely red pictures, and that one of you by the birch tree is just my favorite.

And did you really camp out all that time? May I politely ask, was there a place for toilet and shower necessities?

Will be looking forward to seeing more of you dear friend!

Hi Terry good to see you back after a whole month.

Lovely to see splashes of red all over the post.

You must have had quite an adventure in Manitoba.

Ruby pop-up tent,

from west wind and rain.

My Ruby Tuesday

A little red car’s
the perfect conveyance to
take us past the fence!

Dear Miss Terry .. You and Bernie are real gutsy for camping your way out west! Glad the little red car did not disappoint ... she got you there and back .. a fine car.

My excuse anytime for not camping is the dawg and Nathan. Nathan actually asked to sleep outside .. but there's a few rogue bull moose running loose . . . so not tonight.

So glad you are back home.
