We arrived in Toronto on the 14th and stayed in a real nice city RV park called Glen Rouge Campground. The next day we met up with Lucille Cote' an old high school friend of Suzane's, and had lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. One of Lucille's sons was there as well. Later in the afternoon we headed to North Bay, ON in a rainstorm. :)
Yesterday we started to notice some drainage from Jedi's right ear and he was scratching it a lot. Today we took him to a local Vet who diagnosed him with a "Hot Spot". Apparently he was not getting dry in the hair behind his ear after swimming in the lake in Illinois. He is on some topical antibiotics and pills twice a day. UGH!
After leaving Mount Vernon, IL we made our way up to Canada stopping for a few days in Indiana and a few more in Michigan. We mainly relaxed along the way with really nice weather. It was so nice to get out of the oppressive heat and humidity of the Deep South.
We drove over to Mount Vernon IL on the fourth of Aug. to visit our friends the Baxters. We came to know them from a homeschooling group in Lafayette LA, before they moved a couple of years ago. They live on a small pond out in the country, and the kids and dog had a great time there. We stayed there for about three days before heading out towards Canada.
