Cooler, boat storage, reading outside and meeting new blog followers.

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it
        It was a very cool night and the wind still beating on our coach. It really cooled down only 45f (7C) at 6 am.; But sure could be worse . No complaints here at all. I just bundled up and got a few nice early walkabouts, While our Turkey soup broth was simmering away. The broth made last week and froze. Now a perfect day to make some homemade soup.
       Just added a few more spices and noodles and we had a very hearty soup for lunch, even a few more lunches as well.
homemade stoup, banna, orange and apple a perfect lunch!
on a cooler day
        After lunch I cruised around the Conservation area and down by the lake. First I checked out the beach. Nobody there!  Not surprised , when it is cold and windy. This place is very busy on the hot summer days no doubt.
nice pavilion  
wonderful beach
lake Ontario almost like an oceanOhio way over there 
the CN tower in Toronto in the distance  
       Then down by the Harbour at 50 Point Marina, here off season and pretty quiet right now.
Rescue boat here if needed
        There is a lot of boats in the water, But they have a few here taking many out with cranes and lifts putting therm in storage as I was lucky to see one taken out,
they are cleaning the hull of the one
         Below is a trailer heading in getting ready for another one.
this sail boat mast removed ready to go 
these guys know their stuff
heading out into storage for the winter
the landing Restaurant closed for the season
this guy is getting his boat ready  for storage
       Now after this fun time I headed home to repack our winter supply of coffee. We have 4 1/2 boxes enough bags for 200 pots of the coffee we love. I can repack this.
to make more room I can repack into 3 boxes, below
now we have enough coffee until next spring = perfect!
          Now with lotsa sunshine we found a spot out of the wind to sit outside and enjoy our e-readers for a couple of hours.
       And of course when we sit outside we meet our neighbours, also met some more blog  followers. When we sit outside reading always meet people, part of the lifestyle!
sunny warm and no wind here
      I finished another book and began another page turner, James Patterson , always a good read.
what a perfect day
    While here Bonnie and her dog Stella stopped by for a chat, nice to see them again and a doggie fix for Suzie.
Stella is a sweetie
     Also another neighbour stopped by with Tucker, another Tucker fix for Suzie as well. Even another neighbour Steve that follows our blog, wow we had company for a short while!Always nice to meet new people though.
       Soon time to whip up supper, I made our tasty salad while our Weber Q preheated and grilled some chicken drumsticks for supper.
Weber Q ready to grill
supper ready
yummy?yes !
and a nice sunset too wrap up the day
       Not a bad day at all just taking it easy and relaxing on a sunny, but cooler fall day.
       Thanks for stopping on by.

  1. Neat to see the boats being taken out of the water and loaded on to the trailer to be put in storage.

    That is a heck of a lot of coffee, we wouldn't have room to carry all that with us. Wow, hard to believe you only a few more days before you start heading south for the winter. Bet you and Suzie are pretty excited to really be back on the road again.

  2. From your pictures it looks like your fall day was as beautiful as ours.
    Now that is a lot of coffee but when you find one you enjoy it is nice to have it on hand.

  5. The boat transfer would be interesting to watch but I'd hate to be doing it. I'd rather winterize an rv simply because of the water aspect. That's just me! :)
    2 page countdown now! Have fun with the last minute stuff.

  9. Fond memories of "haulout" weekend at the National Yaght Club in Toronto. The guys were all helping with the crane experts, and the gals were all out there passing cups of beef broth... in the evning a great dinner in the clubhouse... Some diehards live aboard through the winter and install bubble hoses under the boat to keep the water from freezing.

  11. Interesting day, George. Safe travels when you head south. We are in Crane, Oregon on our way to warmer climes. Lots of California smoke on our way across from Port Angeles to Bend, OR then a bit east. We seem to be out of it now. Winnemucca tomorrow. Beatty the next day then we'll hang up there until it gets cooler down near Phoenix and our park in Florence, AZ.
