Thursday and Friday all rolled into one.

Where are we today ?

Thursday's posting: 

         After  a busy Thursday and fun late night (this posting this is two days in one. )

         Gonna be a rainy day but no problem for us, we have stuff to do. To begin, off to see our Doc in Stratford at 8:30am a nice 70 minute country drive. We both checked in with Doc, discussed our general health thats not too bad and stopped by the lab to visit the Vampire again, taking all our blood a bit at a time.
        On the way back it rained and poured, not much traffic so could just take our time. Home by mid afternoon.
this be our drive home
       We puttered around for a while then headed up the hill to visit with Ron and Loree and check out their park model trailer. We last saw them last in Lost Valley Lake Missouri. Also Emile and Monique stopped in for Happy Hour.
Suzie and Freddy
Inside their house instead of the rain outside
         Back home to whip up supper and even took a quick picture of Rock Glen Falls across the road. We could hear the roar of the water with all of the rain that increased the flow today.
Rock Glen Falls across the road
         Left Happy hour and realized tonight is dart night at 6:45pm. So instead of cooking on our Weber Q, I fired up our oven to quickly make a very tasty dish, Maple Mustard Salmon (oh, so very tasty) check the recipe here if you like. I added a rice pilaf and tossed salad to finish it off.
yummy
         Made it down in time to sign up for darts, paid our $3:00 each and were set to go with 15 players- 5 teams. We did pretty good winning 4 out of 6 games and three teams tied for 1st place. So the playoffs we came in second and won some big bucks, $2.00 each. But we sure had 3 hours of fun.
Melinda and Gerry, she is always friendly and was on my team.
They are also Tucker's parents, you met Tucker the other day.
remember Tucker ?
       Enjoyed playing darts here at the clubhouse but after 9:30 when we got home, just too late to begin a blog posting.
Dart night is every thursday night

    Friday's Posting

        Was pretty cold this morning about 36f (2c) but our Mr. Heater warmed things up quite nicely. A few cool walkabouts chatting with more people here and there and watching all the campers arriving for the long  weekend. Watching them set up is entertaining in itself. After yesterday's rain its pretty muddy around here, but the campground is filling up pretty good. Trailers and rigs getting stuck, kids running about having too much fun. Our first Canadian Long weekend  this spring and and as quite often happens it is predicted cold and damp. But hey, they can and will do it, this is Canada and we take what we get. Only got to 10c (50f) today and not much sunshine so not very warm at all, we just add a few extra layers of clothes.
the valley outside our windshield is filling up
maybe a dozen young'ns here in the playground
          Right after lunch another couple we know pulled in. Randy, Gail and their dog Hayley. Have not seen them since sometime last summer. Suzie has known them for years. Even before me!
          About 4 o'clock we stopped at Emile and Monique's, for Happy hour after a nice long walkabout the resort. Once Gail arrived here from work they stopped over for a visit before time to call it  a night and time for supper.
Suzie,  Gail and Hayley,
another doggie fix! 
         Then got to fire up our Weber Q , grilled a couple homemade turkey burgers, and a very tasty loaded up salad.
so very tasty and hit the spot
        All wrapped up by 8 pm , too cold to sit outside so will snuggle inside nice and toasty warm.
        That kinda sums up our two days here, some busier than others, but we just kinda go with the flow. Hope your days have been good too.
        Thanks once agin for stopping on by and if you are in Canada enjoy our long weekend here (Victoria Day). Next weekend our American friends will enjoy their Memorial day Long weekend, hope your weather is nicer than ours. No matter what we will all enjoy it and remember to play safe.

  5. Looks like you had a real downpour of rain. You certainly meet a lot of people when you get back to Canada. Congratulations on the big dart win. You must be skilled in darts as well as in cooking.

  6. Sounds like you've had two good days and a couple of good meals. I just can't get over how pretty your grass is - love those northern grasses. I'm amazed that you are linking up with friends you've seen throughout the year in such far away places - I guess that is another of the good parts of the full timing world.

      Fulltiming and travelling through our membership parks system (over 300) we are bound to run into some people we have met in the last almost 9 years.

  7. Seems evident you are a dart shark. Good win!

    Your temperatures could certainly use some heating up.
