Fri. July 29th A busy, fun day

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006

        A beautiful sunny day and going to be hot again. So an early start, coffee, computing and walkabouts, then a quick trip to Forest for a birthday gift for my grandson that I forgot to pick up yesterday. Back home we had a bite to eat then off to a used book store, about 10 minutes away out in the middle of nowhere. Rob and Pat had told us about this place and it is quite an interesting a house full of books everywhere, but amazingly pretty well organized. The eccentric fellow running the place knew where everything was, if you wanted a certain author he would go an bring out a whole box full of books. So we had fun selecting lotsa books and ended up with about 20 and a bonus was 50% off all of the already cheap books. I was so amazed at this place that I forgot to take pictures! We will be back again.

        Back home Suzie installed a program on Rob's computer then he and I went and got a nice load of firewood only $6.00. Back at camp I split most of it onto small pieces for a campfire later when my daughter arrives at the rental for the weekend.
good deal for firewood

        We had a short happy hour with Rob and Pat and dropped the firewood off at Kim's trailer. Then back home to fire up the barbie and grill a couple of salmon burgers with some chinese noodles and veggies for supper.
tasty supper
        Just about finished supper and Kim phones us saying we are almost there. So we rush over to their trailer to put on a campfire and greet them. Now they arrived with our two grandsons and grandaughter, everyones excited, nice to be camping! (in a park model trailer thou!)
Hi Gramma Suzie!

Cheers Dad!
        A quick refreshment, unpack and then off to the pool and splash pad to cool down. Suzie got to relax by the campfire and get it going, until we were all came back to enjoy it, with some spider dogs, grill-a-dogs and marshmallows. Real camping food as Kim says.
