Join us as we travel North America in our 
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006

       Another wonderful day, after the a very heavy rain overnight, thunder lightning all is good now nice a fresh. The campground office did loose their two computers and one new washing machine with a lightning strike thou. Its going to be another hot day can't wait. Maybe have to turn on air conditioner later today.

        Morning coffees, computing, walkabouts and chat with a few people here and there. Then Suzie and I took a short drive into the Buckhorn Community Centre to check out the Farmer and Craft Market. We were pleasantly surprised at the number of indoor and outdoor vendors since they moved to this new location. A nice small town market.

every Tuesday

nice day

        Once back home I fired up our new barbie  (just had to try it out) and grill a couple of hot dogs for lunch. Then a walkabout before we relax for a bit in the shade with our books. Quite a few people pulling into the resort today and includung Emile and Monique that we spent time with in Louisiana and Alabama last winter.  About 3:30 they dropped by, as did Don and Nancy, and John and Barb, we have another happy hour, everyone getting acquainted and chatting, lotsa fun.

        Shortly after 5 they all went home and now I can fire up our new BBQ, for supper. Tonight I want to try some BBQ'd ribs, so 15 minutes in the pressure cooker to tenderize, then onto the grill, with some baby potatoes and zucchini. Then by 6 pm everything is cooked to perfection, even heat and no flare-ups, yes I am impressed with this amazing Weber Q 100, its everything that they claim maybe even better. What am I going to cook tomorrow???
        After supper we were able to enjoy another lovely evening outside reading a bit more before it got to dark, then inside to relax with a bit of tv before calling it a night. Oh and we did not need to turn on the air conditioner today, we are quite comfortable in the country, under the shade trees with a slight breeze, sure beats what they have to deal with in the cities.

        Hope you are enjoying your summer as well!

  1. I just got caught up your life in this past week. So much stress trying to decided what to cook on the new BBQ. Great choice of griller though. Still cloudy and overcast here in the Okanagan. There is a promise of sun in the forecast way down the road.

  2. Contessa:
    Hope all is going well with you and that you have a speedy recovery. Yes love the BBQ and it is working amazing. No stress on decisions just gonna cook it all and have too much fun.
