What a wonderful day cruising along the north shore of Lake Erie, pictures loaded now.

Where are we today ?
Southern Ontario
      We had thought we made an appointment to get our coach repaired  on Tuesday morning to have our in tank fuel pump replaced and they asked us to make sure there is not much gas in the tank. Trying to get it out over the weekend to no avail so we decided to take a tour today. Anyone who owns an Rv knows that you can use up a lot of fuel in a short period of time.
       So today we packed things up and ready to hit the road, just waiting for the dealer to open at 9 am to make sure they can plug in our coach to keep the fridge operating , its kinda full. And could be in the shop a couple days. Then we find out our appointment is for Wednesday! Oops somebody goofed,  But we are secured and anxious to hit the road. So lets go.
Headed west then back east
        Roads we travelled many years ago when we were working. Put on 206 miles and enjoyed every minute of it. Because we had an extra day decided to stop by and visit friends Christine and Bill. Suzie and Chris grew up together and its been a while.
First stop Port Stanley
 
lotsa boats
           A little further along we stopped at Port Bruce.
nice beach
      The website "settlement stories quilt trail.org" click here for the link tells some interesting stories of various places along the rout.
       Next stop Port Burwell, we have spent many summer weekends here at the park and on the beach, love this quiet area.
Port Burwell Lighthouse
nice beach
we parked by the river for a bit 
nice mural on the grocery store
        Now from here we decided to stop and visit Chris and Bill more nice back roads passing along the fields of tobacco and ginseng

        Then finally at Chris and Bill's place. Wow , when we saw it over a year ago it was a forest and an old falling down farm house. They sure have been busy.
we found their new house

      We chatted and caught up then they cooked up an awesome meal. Melt in you mouth steak,  fresh dug potatoes and onion, along with tomatoes and cucumbers right from the garden , does not get any fresher or tastier than that.
desert, muskmelon rom the garden too
to take with us, Watermelon, tomato,
cucumber and small muskmelon
       So nice to get out and tour as well as stop and visit friends too.
       Was an awesome day moving on down the road tomorrow.
        Our internet was to slow last night could not load the pics, lightening fast this morning.
        Thanks for stopping in.

    1. The ginseng is grown under the black covers, new crops since a lots of the tobacco farms are shutting down.
