Join us as we travel North America in our
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006
Another wonderful sunny sunday morning and its gonna be a pretty nice day, maybe rain this afternoon. So after morning coffees, walkabout, computing and wishing Mike, Trish and Jordan a safe journey to Michigan campgrounds, we hopped in the car off to the Pinery Antique Flea Market near Grand Bend. As a lot of you know is a favorite place for us to take a nice outing on sundays in the summer when we are in this area. The outdoor atmosphere in the woods, many new vendors (and a lot of regulars) always a nice way to spend a few hours.
When we get there Suzie makes a bee-line to John's Books, the only book vendor here that does a book exchange. She had 14 paperbacks and he gave her 10 in exchange, that's a good deal.

Then we stroll up and down the aisles in the shade checking out all the goodies. A small order of fresh cut fries to munch on, we picked up a supply of my extra hot pepperettes, sampled some sausage and kielbasa, listened to Brian Dale singing at the food court and just generally enjoyed the market as we always do.

There was too much traffic to bother going downtown, but at least we got some fresh fish and headed back to the resort for some afternoon shade and a bit more reading. Shortly after 4pm the skies darkened with thunder and lightning and we enjoyed pretty heavy rainfall for a while under the shelter of our awning.
