Laurel Creek Conservation Area St Jacobs

Today is the first day of our 2 month summer vacation.

We will be travelling to various locations around Ontario this summer in our motorhome.  Our first destination is the area around St Jacobs Ontario.

We set off from home around 10 am.

Karen is following in the car so that we have a vehicle with us to do some sight seeing.  You really need a car with you when you travel like this, otherwise all you see is the campground you are parked in.  Unfortunately we do not have the car set up for towing behind the motorhome yet, so Karen has to drive the car.
As you can see in the photos, it is raining as we head to St Jacobs.

This is the route that we took.


We prefer the more scenic, slower back roads when we travel.

What is the hurry, we are on vacation and it is much more relaxing on these roads.

I have to pull over a bit to get past a horse and buggy.  You wont see a sight like this out on the 400 or 401.
