Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
Well a busy day again today. Coffee and check email then off to Lakefield to do the laundry. I was back home by 10:00am and then disassembled the dash of out car in an attempt to repair our dash fan (it only worked on hi speed). Well everything looked ok, no blown fuses or loose wires so I put it back together and we had lunch. A bit of research on the internet revealed a common problem of a faulty resistor, so I will see if I can round one up.
After lunch I went to Peterborough to pick up a blade seal for our toilet and then back home to find out that friends from Mexico had arrived at the Resort and were chatting earlier with Suzie while I was gone. So we went for a stroll into Sherwood Forest to visit with Warren and Joyce, Murray and Brenda and their twin Grandsons for a bit before supper. We met these two couples at Tres Amigos campground in Mazatlan Mexico, Warren is the manager there. This was a nice surprise to sit and chat for a bit, comparing notes and sharing experiences with people we met 4,000 miles away 6 months ago in Mexico. When we arrived here at the resort we had sent Warren an email to see if we could get together, they live about 40 minutes from here. Well his reply was we are camping at Galvin Bay on Aug. 30th for a few days, a nice surprise for us.
We wandered back home to cook supper and tonight was BBQ'd (fall off the bone) ribs, boiled new potatoes, sauerkraut and peas.
After supper we were invited back to their campfire for a bit, and enjoyed a nice evening with the boys roasting marshmallows for the first time. And chatting around the campfire on a nice warm night.
Now these marshmallows are the domestic kind (store bought), not the kind that you would find in Africa that are used as a medicinal and an ornamental plant. (Althaea Officinalis) Check this link for interesting history of the Marshmallow. Thanks to Warren for that tip on this mysterious confection.

After a nice social around the fire, finally time to go home and call it a night. Thanks to Murray, Brenda and the twins for the lovely campfire.
