On the road Goderich to Arkona Ontario.

Where are we today ?
Rock Glen Resort Arkona Ontario
        After a great day yesterday we had a good nights sleep and up with the sun this morning. Coffees and computing, a walkabout here then pack up ready to travel. 
a nice sunrise today
        We had a trailer parked behind us for the night so when they were ready to leave we could pull out too.
waiting to go
        Sent an email to the Bayfield bunch  just down the road and thought maybe drop by for a visit, but, with such short notice Al was gone out cruising the back country (as usual) and we did not connect once again. So head on to hwy 21 south, just bumping along (sure wish they would repave this road) this is Ontario's west coast and every once in a while a glimpse of the lake, (Lake Huron).
85kms (52miles) today
         A bit further thru Grand Bend with traffic lined up for blocks at one of the two stop lights in town. A bright sunny summer day perfect weather for this summer hot spot on the water. 
        Just south of town is the Pinery Flea Market (our favourite) open only sundays (today) but no rv parking so rather than hassle trying to find a place to park and disconnect the car we decided just to carry on, will get there next sunday.
Fleamarket in the trees
a busy day at the market
        Just over an hour's drive today we pulled into Rock Glen Resort in Arkona, located our friends Bill and Barb  from New York, who are here on a weeks vacation. Found a spot right across from them in the shade and got ourselves all set up in time for lunch.
        Now to put up our feet and relax for a bit with our books, then the afternoon just slipped away with, Mike, Trish, Wayne, Joe, Bill, Barb and Kim stopping by to chat for a bit.
        Then soon time to fire up our Weber to bake a couple of new potatoes and grill a mess of chicken drumsticks for a tasty supper.
        After supper read for a bit and Mike stopped by with "security" to make sure everything is safe here.
Maggie the Chihuahua is "security"
        Then of course we just have to join Barb, Bill, Kimberley and Coco around a nice campfire, (the first of many this week) tell a few stories and catch up, we have not seen each since last October. Not as cold as last night but it was still after 10 o'clock before we decided to call it a night.

        Thats it for another nice summer day, now on a large full hookup site in a nice quiet area of the campground. Sooo nice...
        Thanks for the read.
