     Just another wonderful sleep again, perfect weather overnight with our windows wide open all night and so peaceful here as well. Up early usual and got a few nice walkabouts , even at 6:30 this morning it was very warm gonna be another hot day !
nice view around the campground and ponds
      We were looking forward to checking out the Pow Wow at Kettle/ Stoney Point First Nation not too far from us here. We did not go yesterday because of the rains. Supposed to start at 10 am so we headed on out got there about 10:25 am. Not much going on but was free admission for seniors over 60 , glad that it was.
this be the place on Lake Huron 
         Once we checked in got a program, no information was available on line or we would have come much later.
    We wandered around for about 15 minutes and checked our some vendors, most not open yet and lotsa food vendors not there yet either.
not open

    This vendor below was almost open and was making some nice moccasins reasonably priced too, but nothing we needed.
hand made right here
love this headress
      We did not feel like waiting around for another 90 minutes or more so decided to head on back home with a nice cruise around the area by the lake,
love the views across Lake Huron, Michigan on the other side
      Stopped by the grocery store here for a few items them made our way along hwy 21 back home, Found this nice new farm market (juicy fruit) and stopped to check it out, Kinda cool place and lots of good deals to be had here.
        Love their cashier/checkout is a 1963 chevy with the cashier in the middle.

     We picked up a package of smoked pork chops and our very first feed of local corn this year! Fresh picked today ! Also picked up a fresh cantaloupe for a buck, yummy.
this is a real treat for us, early local corn
       After here made our way back home by 12 noon, for a nice light lunch and relax outside in the shade with our e-readers. Another hot day!
yup it's hot
    So turned on our A/c too cool down inside while we went for a refreshing ice cream and a nice cool shady spot with a light breeze.

      Now again at 3 pm Tucker dragged Gerry over for a treat and of course Happy hour with us.
Hi 5 from Tucker

      Being Sunday a lot of campers had packed up and headed on out leaving it wonderfully quiet here once again.
      Soon time to fire up our Weber Q 100, grilled a couple cobs of corn with the husks on I had soaked in the sink for a while. Then put the smoked pork chops on only need to heat them up.
nothing supper was ready.
        Added to our salad and cantaloupe we had too much food so once again some leftovers for lunch just the way we like it.
what a tasty supper we enjoyed.

        Just another mild evening and good nights sleep we both had. Up early and a couple of short walkabouts chat with a few people and our plan today was to go to the Pow Wow at Kettle point about 10 am, but a nice steady rain for about 30 minutes at 9:30 changed our plans. Forecast rain most of the day. (ended up did not happen)  Ok don't want to do the Pow wow in the rain maybe tomorrow forecast looks much better.
      So plan B was to see if they need help for the lunch BBQ. No volunteers so far so we hopped in to do that seeing as we around here any way. Easy to do just BBQ some burgers and hot hogs that they sell 3 Bucks for a burger 2 bucks for a hot dog includes chips and a fruit punch.  I cooked  about 2 dozen hot dogs and about 3 dozen burgers, served from 12 till 1 pm.
me just flipping burgers and dogs
always fun when we here
a nice steady line coming in
nice and easy not too busy
Suzie helped out some, with prep and clean up as well
in no time we were done home just after 1 pm
       Just puttered around for a bit and enjoyed our e readers in the shade. 3 pm Tucker came over and dragged Gerry along Suzie got her doggie fix again !
treats for Tucker he is such a good boy
he really enjoys his chair we bought for him too
      Most of the day was over cast and humid but not too hot . Humidex said 100f so not a real active day now relaxing in  the shade was perfect.
this was a cloudy day
       After  Happy Hour with Tucker and Gerry preheated our Weber Q 100 and put a nice rub on a small pork loin roast to do on our grill mat. This was done to perfection in about 45 minutes internal temp 160F. still moist and tender.
nicely glazed on the grill mat
     Added to our salad and of course apple sauce, this really hit the spot tonight. Love applesauce with a roast pork.
tender moist and juicy
     After supper, and dishes still relaxing outside on a very nice warm evening , Chatted with good friends Liz Taylor and Wray we have known for years. Nice to see them again. Just wrapping up this posting in time to get back into our page turners and maybe enjoy another sunset here if we can see it, below is last nights sunset. 
last nights sunset was nice
     We enjoyed a wonderful day once again enjoying this lifestyle, taking every day as it comes. Never know how it will  evolve.
      Thanks for taking the time to drop in and hope your day was as wonderful as ours was.

The heat wave came back, helping a friend set up her satellite dish and enjoying this weather. Also fixed our airconditioner control again

Where are we today ?

       A bit warmer last night but we good with the bedroom windows open and the fantastic fan pulling in a nice cool outside temperature. After a late dart night slept in until 6 am. Enjoying this warm weather and another hot one we will have today.
     Did get a few nice walkabouts  before it got too warm then puttered around for a bit. Washed the bugs off the front of our coach and gave it another coat of wax. Then polished the headlights on our car and coach again, just because I can and only takes a few minutes anyway.
right side almost done left side next 
this works really well , Walmart in the states
only 10 bucks
just like new again
         This taken care of, I walked over to visit a fellow camper here, Connie. She is not getting all the channels on her Shaw satellite dish. I check things out and looks like a tree branch has grown and is in the way. So I temporarily moved the dish and wow much better reception and most of her channels have returned. Darn trees keep growing and get in the way ! She happy and me happy solving this problem. I do love to solve these problems if I can.
      Then we enjoyed a light tasty lunch. Another walkabout and started another book, Getting pretty warm so not much physical activity this afternoon.
getting warmer so a reading in the shade works for us
feeling like 100 F soon
I read this short book in about an hour and always enjoy her books.
      A bit later thought maybe turn on our air conditioner. OOPs once again the thermostat is not working.  We have had this problem a few times over the years, and I know an easy fix. To repair the whole system is well over a thousand dollars, but this works just fine .
     Nothing worked the way it was supposed to to, so I take it apart and spray it with electronic cleaner , let it sit for an hour or so and put it back together. So far this this has been working for the last 10 years.
take it apart 
spray the controls with this does the trick
    While waiting for this to work back outside in the shade and read some more. Pretty nice out here in the shade with a light breeze .
another Karen Slaughter book this be a full novel
yup this is the life
Suzie sitting back there, more shade and more breeze
5:30 pm still hot and now the A/C is working again
       Soon time to begin supper , so I preheat our Weber Q 100 , and whip up a salad. I put these mediterrain kabobs on our grill mat . Picked up a package yesterday for $3;99 thought there was 2 but ended up there was 3. Ok we will have leftovers .
not long and these were done to perfection
very tasty with our salad works for us and yup I only ate one.
lunch tomorrow
     Dishes done and back outside in the shade enjoying this wonderful peaceful campground, Finish this posting out here and read bit more before heading inside for the night. Our A/C is working fine still, so will be quite comfy inside for tonight,
   Thanks for stopping by for a peek and hope y'all enjoyed your day as well.
