Weird weather, cool, hot, cool, windy, rainy, but a nice rainbow to wrap up the day,

Where are we today ?
Clic on a pic to enlarge it
         The temperature really dropped overnight only about 48 f this morning but did finally warm up by 9 am. not too bad it finally got to the low 80's F for a while.
         Got a few walkabouts this morning and into Buckhorn to check out the Market and pick up a few food things, just a couple miles down the road. And I always enjoy checking out what's new here in cottage country. Nothing new at the Market lotsa crafts and a some food  vendors, 1 veggie vendor but nothing we needed today. Did stop to chat with a friend here, Monique thats set up and sells some of her wonderful photos that she takes. (sorry I forgot to take a pic). This is the last day for the market here this year.
          Then back through town to check out the nice boats camped out for the night waiting to head head down river though the lift locks this morning on the Trent-Severn Waterway. A series of 44 lift locks through Central Ontario from Georgian Bay to the St. Lawrence Seaway a distance of 210 miles. A journey that we had always thought about taking someday, if we had a houseboat. It would be awesome! But not in our budget right now.
      We did enjoy some wonderful reading outside in the shade for a while, then a friend Jim stopped by and we discussed issues of the overheating of our coach. Plus he brought along Max so Suzie got another doggie fix today.
Doggie fix for Suzie and a treat for Max
        About 4 pm clouds came in and the winds picked up, so they headed home, we rolled up our awning and headed inside just before the rains came down. Not heavy but rainy and windy, so better safe than sorry.
A storm is coming
      Then for supper tonight gonna use up some more leftover turkey done on our Weber Q on Sunday. So tonight with the weather forecast not great gonna do a stir fry inside our coach (rare that I cook inside but sometimes it works out, this is 2 days in a row! Our Weber Q is lonely.) An easy quick meal and oh so tasty. For the recipe click HERE or my recipe blog top right sidebar. Garlic, Turkey and broccoli stir fry.
everything ready to cook
few minutes later all done
and was very tasty
need to do this again!
      No sitting outside tonight, cool drizzly, but heck we sure can't complain about this summer weather so far.
      After supper we had a pretty nice rainbow, not great but sure was a nice way to end another great summer day here in Ontario.
Rainbow right outside

       Glad that y'all stopped by for a visit today and hope your day was as wonderful as ours.

  1. Interesting to hear about the overheating of your coach. Now is that overheating on the inside because of the warm summer, or is it the overheating of the engine?

    1. That's overheating of the engine when climbing grades, we want to resolve the problem before we head south.

  2. We've had the cool evenings for a while and they sure do make sleeping easy. I think our hot days are behind us for 2016. Even a few showers are possible in the forecast. Seasons change.

  4. It's cooling off here in BC as well. Try to squeeze two more weeks of camping in after the long weekend and that'll be it. Vancouver Island here we come.

    1. Two more weeks of camping sounds good and so does the island.
