Happy Canada Day!

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it !
        After a fun day yesterday enjoying the heat, cooling off in the pool and late night watching the live band here had a great night's sleep. And because of that I slept late until 6 am. But up and at it enjoying a nice walkabout before the heat makes me slow down and relax in the shade.
       Again chat with a few people here and there.
this be the day for Canada's Anniversary
       A few more walkabouts chat with some people checked our tire pressures and a light tasty lunch. Then a quick trip to Strathroy for a few supplies, and back home to read in the shade for a while.
      Chatted with Justin for a bit in a cabin right behind us. We have not seen him for a while then, Walt and Barb stopped by for a quick visit. And of course Suzie got a doggie fix with Maya . Always nice to see them again . Walt installed the flooring in our coach last summer and did an amazing job !
Maya says hi to Suzie
          Still hot and humid here 96F with the humidex only 108F (42C) down from 115F yesterday.  Still hot enough for Suzie to suggest a dip in the pool again! Wow ! Now this is wonderful. The outside pool is very refreshing and cools us down quite nicely . Bill and Eli joined us for a few minutes just as we were getting ready to leave. Nice to see them out and about so many times over the years , Bill and us have some wonderful memories.

         After our swim, over to Paul and Judy's for Happy hour, nice to see everyone once again before we head on out. Been here for 2 weeks, more than long enough for us in one place. We will pack up in the morning and relocate to another favourite place we really enjoy.
12 of us here for Happy Hour,
too much conversation going on
for me to hear so I headed home
to pack up a few things and prep supper
        A few things packed up preheat our Weber Q and grilled a couple of these Shrimp Burgers that we love for a nice light meal tonight.
these are excellent
         About 7 minutes a side on our Weber Q and Enlish muffins in foil we like for buns.
made some shrimp sauce
to top them off and was very tasty
lotsa shrimp
   That was our Canada Day winding down. Now to finish this posting and head on oustide in the shade to get right back in the Patterson / Clinton book (the President is missing). Tomorrow is actually the holiday so that people can have a long weekend.
     Thanks for taking the time to drop by and hope you enjoyed this weather wherever you are.

  1. Happy Canada Day! I've eaten a lot of shrimp tacos, but can't say I've ever had a shrimp burger - not even sure if I've seen a shrimp patty :) With the hot humid weather do you find the bugs are out more than normal?

    1. Love shrimp Tacos as well, but I came across these here last year and we really enjoy them.
      We are real lucky right here, next to no bugs at all, compared to other places that we have been, another reason we enjoy it here.

  7. Oh CANADA!!! Happy Canada Day! Do you have lots of fireworks like down here? Really, I could do without all the racket in my neighborhood!! Shrimp burgers ... never heard of them. Canada has some interesting frozen foods.

    1. Thanks Nancy there is fireworks in various areas but none in the campground. We could hear some at the Golf Course behind us but in the distance. Not bad here at all.
      We have only seen the Shrimp burgers here and are a nice treat. Various foods in different countries as we have found out over the years.

  8. Happy Canada Day. Wow 96F - I always thought Canada was the place to go to beat the heat - guess one has to go to Yellowknife.

    1. Yes Larry here in southern Ontario we can get some pretty hot weather in the summer, many days over 90F but very humid.
      We can head a few hundred miles north and it will be cooler , but lotsa bush and bugs.
