Rainy, cool last day Destin Florida

Where are we today ?
        Got up this morning and putter about, finding it quite cool outside overcast and rainy. Coffee's and computing for a while, chat with out hosts and Marc made us a wonderful breakfast, bacon, sausage, eggs, home fried potatoes. A real treat we have not had for quite a while.
        Then the plan was to check out a few stores and do a bit of shopping so that we all did. A few things here and there and some groceries, then to take a quick drive thru another shopping area Destin Commons, an upscale expensive shopping area reminding me of an old town square setting, with fountains and lights etc... apparently very beautiful at night.

        Now most of the day had just passed us by so back to their house, still cold and rainy. Marc had a plan for supper tonight so he made up a nice pot of Potato Leek soup and began assembling a very tasty recipe his son, Jason, came across, Turkey and Sweet Leek pie. We had a mess of left over turkey so worked out great. For the recipe click here
        As you can gather Marc loves to cook and I get to have a rest and watch or even help him a bit. But the best thing to do, as I can attest to is just stay out of the way, watch and chat, sharing a beverage as we enjoy this creative passion we both have.

        Now with all this food they invited Barry and Marlene over as well, I created another caesar salad and we had another fun evening with great food, good conversation and good friends. We find out that Barry and Marlene live in Ontario about 15 minutes from our one home park "Rock Glen Resort" in Arkona Ontario. So we may just have to look them up  sometime this summer.

        Another fun day catching up with friends, but don't want to wear out our welcome. A phone call tells us ou new fridge is installed and we can pick up our coach in the morning. So we head off to bed and pack up our foodstuffs and  make our way back home in the morning. Fire up the engine on our house and carry on moving slowly west. Exploring a few new places.
        Thanks for dropping in for a visit, y'all come back now, hear?
