Join us as we travel North America in our
Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August 2006
I had told my sister that we could stain the boathouse when we invited ourselves to their house for a few days, so today was the day, we hoped. Overnight was nice and warm, we can sleep with the windows open for a cool breeze. Early morning is calm, computing and coffees getting ready to start staining the boathouse, its bit overcast.
Well at 9:00am the four of us are ready, open the paint and start cutting in the shady side, a few minutes later a light rain starts, so I cleaned up the brushes and we do some other stuff, waiting for the rain to stop.
At 11:00 we are going to start again but another light rain, so we have a bite to eat, chat for a while and by 12:30 the sun comes out and the rains have stopped. I had hopped to be done by noon.
Now team work helps, the first side was cut in before the rain started so Lou, Paul and Suzie continued to do the rest of the boathouse and I began rolling. The weather held out, mostly sunny with a nice breeze and we managed to paint in the shade as it kept moving.

Have a beverage, a light snack and chat looking out over the lake and enjoying the view. Then eventually its time for supper, tonight we have some baked maple salmon skewers, steamed rice, pasta salad and a tossed salad all prepared and served by my sister Chef Louise.
Now with a great day and tasty meal done we can sit on the lower deck for a bit and decide to call it an early night after such a busy day. Paul has to leave about 5:00 am for Toronto to work the Honda Indy for the first of 4 days, he uses his experience as a firefighter and trainer at the Toronto Airport.
Now a nice sunset over the lake to wrap it all up.
