Heading south for a bit.....

Where are we today ?
Rock Glen Resort Arkona Ontario
        This morning we are on the road yippeee!!! Not going far but we are moving, love moving. 
        While waiting for Suzie to get in the mood to go, I went Pettigrew's Garage in town to see what's new. Not much, but shoot the breeze for a bit and check out the shop in the back. They service everything here. Today there is a beautiful looking wagon in the shop from a couple in town that have Percheron horses. A beautiful breed of draught horses. Their wagon needs a brake job. 
        Did you know these wagons had drum brakes just like a car? Here at Pettigrew's they do it all cars, trucks, rv's, golf carts, electric scooters, bicycles, lawn mowers, tractors and even horse wagons.  Like Dale (our mechanic says, " It's just nuts and bolts".)
beautiful wagon
        Just leaving the farm and heading to Rock Glen resort for 8 days (south west of the farm), full hookups again. Relax a bit and just hang out. 90 minutes away we check in, its kinda drizzling, so hooked up, open awning and set up our dish. All done by 11:30 and have a nice lite lunch.
hooking up the car this heifer comes to say goodbye
then Omer wants a treat
good boy
        Now we are all set up and just enjoying the day. I can putter about an bit and Suzie can read, even have a short nap.
        Mid afternoon Trish's daughter Jordan dropped by for a nice visit, to show us her Halloween costume and even her dog Maggie with bat wings all set for the the trick or treat night here in 10 days. We won't be here thou.
Jordans nice outfit
        Was outside a bit later when Rich and Marylou dropped by for a chat and asked if I could check out their satellite dish. They just got a new trailer yesterday and would like to show if off too. So off we went for the tour of their beautiful new "summer home" (much bigger than their last one). Checked out the dish and all looks good except the trailer appears not to be wired for satellite. A bit of puttering and got it working just fine. Gonna check it out more tomorrow. We chatted some, had a brew then back home to fire up our Weber Q to grill some chicken legs, add a few boiled potatoes and some cauliflower with cheese, we had a very tasty light supper.
yep its all good

        Now after a great day, in a nice quiet place with and an early night, we just gonna veg for a bit before calling it a night.
        Thanks for stopping in!

  1. Yep .. I love moving too. After sitting a while I get bored. Don't know what I'm going to do when I get really, really old and have to sit.

    1. Yeah same here, don't know how I will ever stay in one place again.

  2. And another great day with pretty food I always check out your food... Think I would have probably tried to kidnap that Omer what a cutie he is...enjoy your stay

    1. Thanks for stopping by, the food even tastes pretty good too, at least in my opinion, and if its not good Suzie will tell me.

  3. That's a gorgeous wagon. One of my brothers in N.S. would be drooling. He's had Percherons for years. At one time as many as 22. He's down to two teams now. He's been "retired" for a few years now, but somehow I think his "hobby farm" is more work than going to work everyday, but he sure enjoys himself.
    Looks like your weather is holding out, but definitely getting cooler.

    1. It is a beautiful wagon. The people that own it were neighbors for over twenty years and we would occasionally see a couple of their horses and wagons around, they were stabled out of town somewhere.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
