Where are we today ?
Grimsby Ontario Canada
Well here we are back at the Supper 8 in Grimsby, got phone phone call from Terry Sicard last night. The first not good news, the second was better news. He told us he was putting 2 mechanics on our coach this morning and hopefully the fuel tank can be removed, new fuel pump installed and will be all done by Friday.
Had our free breakfast, juice, coffees, cereal, bagels and got a walkabout around the area, few blocks and down to the lake but was kinda foggy so not much to see there.
We are not indoor people so a hotel room is not what we enjoy at all. Gotta be out and about, walking or even reading in the shade.

So we checked out from here 11 am and took a drive to see how things were going. I have researched this and know what they need to do.
On the way we stopped at Wendy's across the road and had a couple wraps for lunch and split a small fry, six bucks, not too bad.
|nice fruit stand here, but we need |
our house to buy stuff
Removing the gas tank is not an easy job. First partially empty 4 rear compartments., Cut 4 holes to access the bolts holding the gas tank in place. Remove the 2 rear hydraulic jackets and cut the welds for the jack stabilizer's. Big job, they don't built these coaches to repair very well. All seems to be going pretty good so far.
So we left there and checked back into our room for another night. Its a hot day and we would love to be in our coach under the awning sitting in the shade enjoying our e readers but...

over the entrance , nice
So get another room and choose to go across the road a do a tour of Forty Creek Distillery. they make some very good Canadian Rye Whiskey, actually one on the best. The link is here is ya like. And we have never toured a distillery before. Have you? Very interesting tour about 90 minutes in all. Our tour guide was great with lots of interesting information and stories.

Tour is done and we each get 3 samples, they are tiny but thats ok this is spirits and Suzie and I can share. So we sampled and choose two very interesting tastes that we both liked. Could have bought more but, this is Canada very expensive stuff.
|The 2 we choose, the Oh Canada is only available |
The Oh Canada and has real Quebec maple syrup, tastes like
Maple syrup with a slight kick excellent!
Vanilla ice cream and would be awesome! How about on your pancakes or waffles for breakfast ?
Back to our room by 3;30 walkabout check out the exercise room and a dip in the pool and hot tub, why not its here and not busy ?
|small exercise room but would do|
|the pool nice and quiet here|
Now time for supper and no Weber Q ( we miss that already). But the Super store around the corner. So grabbed 1/2 BBQ' chicken and salad. Less then ten dollars and was excellent!

So there thats what we did, move out of our room check the RV and move back in for another night. Either our coach is ready tomorrow or not. Will see what happens then. This is a 3 day long weekend so plans are up in the air, but no matter what the weekend will happen and we will enjoy it. Last minute note my one hearing aid died yesterday on top of everything else, so needs to be sent out for repairs (next week). So plans are on hold for a while yet.
Thanks for stopping by again and hope you enjoyed this last kick at hot summer weather, I know we did.
