Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
since August 2006
Today is Sept. 1st and it always reminds me that summer vacation is over. As a child my sister and I spent the whole summer at our family cottage a couple hundred yards from Georgian Bay close to Wasaga Beach/Collingwood Ontario with our grandparents. This posting on June 3rd tells more about the cottage. Sept.1st marked the last long weekend of the summer, we went back to the city, (Scarborough, a Suburb on Toronto Ontario). We got to go to the CNE (Canadian National Exihibition) and spend the money we earned with summer chores on midway rides, games and food. Then it was back to living in the city and back to school. I always looked forward to the CNE but not living in the city and going back to school.
Now this same long weekend and a little bit older now we have mixed emotions. The last summer rush to the campground, celebrations and fun, the weather will be getting colder and the days shorter. But now we don't go to the CNE anymore, no more school, no more city living,we are on a permanent vacation. The temperature with humidity was 36c (94f) I love that, and once everybody else goes back to work and school next week the campground will be nice and peaceful, very relaxing and then we will begin planning our winter migration, exploring new sunny warm southern destinations, before winter sets in here.
Today was busy puttering around and chatting with neighbours, so many new ones and ones we have not seen for a while. We tried reading for a while in the cool shade of our awning, but did not work, today ended up being a very social day. And we enjoyed it until 5:30 pm when we went to the clubhouse for a potluck dinner for all who had played darts this summer. We only played a few times but were invited so our slow cooker of wieners and beans added to the great selection supplied by over 40 dart players.
