IMG_5796There was another upside to making the trek into Ohio for trailer repair. Sugarcreek is just south of Canton. So last night after we set up camp at the KOA in East Sparta we drove into Canton and met Peyton and Riley, Dave and Amy at a local restaurant. Peyton thrilled us both by spotting us across the parking lot, squealing “Grandpop! Grandpop!” and running right into Nana’s arms. We had a delightful visit over dinner then continued it at Dave’s apartment. It was the night before the first day of school so a prompt bedtime was in order but just before that as Riley was showing us things for the first day of school we discovered an important item that Riley needed. So while Dave and Steve put the girls to bed, Karen and Amy made a quick trip to Target. It was good visiting time. And we were able to continue the visit for a little bit more this morning. Dave has taken the week off from work for the purposes of moving from his apartment to a house he’s just rented. That gave us a chance to meet him for a leisurely breakfast at Bob Evans. Good hugs!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
