       A bit of rain overnight and early morning, But after coffees and computing it stopped and I got a few nice walkabouts this busy campground for the Victoria Day (May 24) Long weekend. The official beginning of the camping and cottage season here.  AND tomorrow is officially my birthday, ya hoo made it another year. And like every year in the past most of Canada gets to enjoy a long weekend for my birthday, (along with Queen Victoria), but at least I am still alive to enjoy it.
campground pretty quiet at 7 am, but getting full
              We secured the coach, jacks up and car in tow headed on out at 9 am. taking the back country roads to New Hamburg (Suzie's brother's and SIL's place) to park our coach for a day or so. Thanks Dennis and Sandy. No traffic along these roads at all.
       Got here about 11 am set up, had a quick lunch then dropped Suzie off to visit with her Dad, while I ran a few errands around new Hamburg. Picked her up and back home shortly after 2 pm to relax for a while. Then I whipped up my Apple Broccoli salad (you have seen the recipe the last couple of nights on my blog) to take to daughter number one's place tomorrow to share with the family, party time there.
wonderful country drives,
the way we like to travel
a few nice horse ranches along the way as well
this ranch is for sale,
wanna buy it ?
we had dry  roads for a while and some rain
a bit of rain too
       While shopping in New Hamburg I stopped by the water wheel  right beside the river and small waterfalls,
lovely water wheel here in town
the falls over the dam
fishing in the river and stepping stones to cross it
We parked here for a couple of days
a very nice place they have with lots of tall trees
           We were invited here for supper with Dennis and Sandy. They have some tasty smoked pork chops for me to cook, so I whipped a tasty salad and Sandy made some mashed taters and veggies to go with it.  Yup we had a very tasty meal.
love these smoked chops on the grill
and yes they have a Weber Q.
salad , mashed taters, veggies and salad  sure did the trick
then Sandy offered us a very tasty looking (almost ) homemade
pumpkin pie for desert, gotta give it a try
yummy, thanks guys for a wonderful dinner!
      Now that was our fun day almost, 7 pm time to head on home and call to a night soon. looks like we have a couple of busy days in our forecast .
        Thanks again for taking the time to stop in and check us out.
a nice travel day on the back roads, perfect
