Parked at Purden LakeAugust 16, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F
Enjoyed a quick shower this morning before we took off. Stopped for propane (only our second fill up since we left) and a few groceries. Not much to visit on todays drive, but we did stopped a couple of times.
First was a wildlife viewing opportunity, just a half mile walk out to a viewing platform that had been built in the 90s I think. Well the forest has continued to grow since then so really we only had a view of more shrubs and trees. No wildlife to be seen, arrrgh!
Second stop was a mile long interpretative walk above Willow River. Not alot to see, mostly a discussion about the types of ecosystems in the forest depending on soil, sun, fire or disease. But always godd to fit a walk in....
Next stop was Purden Lake for lunch. This is a good size lake with a lot of recreational activities. We stopped at the resort and then walked their campground near the lake just to check it out.... liked the lake so much we drove back a couple of kilometers and got a spot in the Provincial park campground. Not lakeside, but another beautiful wooded, private site. This park is particularly nice, they have flush toilets!
Auggie and I walked the trail near the lake and checked out the dock. Just a gorgeous day, but forgot to take my phone so no pictures of the blue sky and lake. We were in early enough in the afternoon that Tom got to take a nap this day!
He did some chores around the RV and I actually did some reading.... dinner and bed.Read more
