A hot sunny day and a wonderful visit with fellow Rv'ers and Bloggers.

Where are we today ?
       A bright sunny morning with wonderful warm summer temperatures. Nice walkabouts the campground over the sand dunes and along the beach. A perfect day for it.

         A quiet morning walk on the beach before it gets too hot.
walking along the beach in the warm water
          We had a lovely afternoon enjoying this amazing weather and just relaxing in the shade at or site enjoying our books until 3:30. Then hopped in the car and headed on over to visit with Ron and Sharon  a super couple we met in Willis Texas, Ashdown Arkansas and Rock Glen resort in Arkona this past spring they do post a blog occasionally and you can check them out HERE The Princess and the Cowboy. They have a seasonal site close to Long Point and spend most of the winter in south Texas.
Ron and Sharon
          We got the full tour of their amazing site, so much to see here and all of Sharon's hobbies to display. They picked up a but of bowls balls last winter and she had done an amazing job decorating them for the garden.
Also glass bowls and dishes she pick up at yard sales
and creates flower displays, so amazing.

mushrooms from glass bowls etc.
then we have Ron's "Man Cave"
workshop/storage shed
water trough for your horse
miniature golf course
nice outdoor living room too
          We had been invited for a  "Weber" moment at their place, to catch up and tell lies around the campfire. So thats what we did. Only Ron did the cooking and I got to watch, bonus!
fire up his Weber Q 120
fresh Ontario Candy Corn on the campfire
Tender fall of the bone pork ribs and baked taters
Sharon added some baked beans she whipped up
        Well I am telling you it was very tasty supper that we thoroughly enjoyed and to finish off with a very light moist pineapple angel food cake. Boy did they spoil us!
this desert was beyond words, sorry Rick no leftovers
        Now rolled away from the table and enjoyed telling even more lies around this colorful campfire that made with his "magic" wood.
       Well its getting dark and almost past my bedtime. We had a fun visit and great meal with great new friends, but need to call it a night.
       Glad you stopped by and hope you can drop by again soon.

  1. With all that food, to see your girth pretty much the same between the two header pictures, I have to say, hats off!
    Must be the walks in the morning.
    Either that or you just look at the food, take a picture, but then don't eat it!

    1. Yep it has been about the same for the last forty years , give or take a bit here and there.

  2. What a lovely day you had with friends, good weather, nice friends, tasty food and the beach. I'm looking forward to doing just that very soon

    1. Go for it and enjoy before summer is over.

  3. Enjoy the Long Point area George, it is a great it there.

    1. Yes we do too, a lot of great memories here.

  4. That dinner your friends grilled up on the Weber Q looked good enough to challenge even you George! Wow - those ribs looked tasty. So did the dessert.

    What a great looking campground you're in.

    1. I believe anybody with a Weber Q can make great meals because it just works great.
