Napanee Ontario Walmart

Yep, we did it! We parked in a Walmart parking lot overnight. Not that there’s anything wrong it but it is just something we never do. But this time we needed to be in the area to visit friends and there just wasn’t any place else to stay.   It worked out fine. We asked the manager if we could …
