         We did get to read for a short bit this afternoon in the shade then at 5 pm a band started playing by the clubhouse, they were excellent and we could hear them perfectly from our site. 
love this series of books i got from Croft
          Then at 6 pm we went there for the fish fry with yet more friends, (large lake Perch) fresh cut fry's homemade coleslaw and a bun for only $10.00 what a feast, we could have shared one order, we brought almost a full order home.

this 2 price band was excellent played tune that we enjoyed
           Listened to then band for a while until 8pm, when they quit, then back to join the campfire again with more friends, their last night here. A very large group that just kept expanding finally home for us about 10:30. We was whipped, right to bed.
a nice fire and more and more people kept coming
        Then Sunday morning walkabout by the pond love the warm weather, fountain and lillies
always nice here in the morning walkabouts
     We did not feel like heading to the pinery market this morning just a nice day to relax.
     A bit later our friends git back and had to pack up and head back to Hamilton and New York, Some people still have to work So we went down to say our good byes for now and will see them again soon.
Suzie played with Sadie Ann for a while and gave her some water
even got to hold her finally
         We chatted for a while then John and Wendy pulled out heading back home too.
John and Wendy leaving us for now

     Happy hour was supposed to be some people stop by but they do not show, but we did have Nichole and Konner drop in for a while to chat  then I whipped up a light tasty supper. A couple of salmon fillets and a caesar salad hit the spot.
love our salmon on the grill
nice and light and tasty
did the trick
    We relaxed a bit more outside and were invited to 2 campfires tonight. But heck we are done. too many late nights that were are not used to (must be getting old!) so had to decline. Head inside kick back and call it an early night.
      Thanks for taking the time to catch up with us and if you missed yesterday's posting about our 12 year anniversary of full timing you can read about it at the tab top left of of our blog 12 Years Full-time.
That review is only about our full-time travels, in the 70's and 80's have travelled all across Canada to Vancouver Island northern states and Quebec, Maritime provinces and pretty well all on the New England Staes as well
      Time to call it a night and hop y'all had great day as well.
