Join us as we travel North America in our
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006
A lovely bright sunny morning and perfect weather for the day but only 24c (74f), I would have liked warmer. After the required coffees, computing and walkabouts we took Rob and Pat for a nice country drive to the Pinery Fleamarket in Grand Bend. Now this is one of our favourite outings, just the friendly atmosphere and a stroll thru the woods.

|free popcorn too|
After a fun time browsing we hopped in the car just to take a drive down into town and cruise the strip down to the beach, before the place turns into a zoo next weekend for July 1st celebrations.

It was perfect beach weather but we are not stopping, everyone was dressed too warm (except me) so we just showed them the sights. Back to the highway and down the other side of the river to look at all the yachts and sailboats, we found the fish market was open and they had some lovely looking pickerel fillets, we have not had that for quite a while.
So now back home, to the quiet of our resort, after a fun day we can relax in the sunshine with our books for a while. Then happy hour to chat for a bit before firing up the barbie to grill a 1/2 chicken we had thawed out, swiss chalet dipping sauce, some boiled new potatoes, a corn on the cob (thanks to Rob and Pat for the corn).
When the dishes were done Rob had started a nice campfire so we joined them for a bit for a nice evening chat, while lady girl sat on her chair, with a jacket on, to keep the chill off. Spoiled dog? yes.
|you like my jacket??|
