Suzie's hair trimming, Farmer's market, reading and ice cream, wonderful !

Where are we today ?
        What a wonderful morning today! Up at 5:30 am and temps at 65F (18C). What's not to like  about that? Got my walkabouts done and at 9 am headed into Buckhorn (8 minutes away). Suzie needs a hair cut (trim), 2-3 times a year. Easy thing to do with long hair.
         Stopped into this hair dresser and she was taken right away. So I wandered about the village for 20 minutes to check out the sights.

nice wood working things as well

local Maple syrup
fresh local produce
       Now back home for a light lunch and enjoy a wonderful afternoon. Reading our books (E-readers), walkabouts and a nice treat. Love reading outside with this great weather.  Then a dish of Butterscotch Ice cream! Thanks Charlie for the suggestion.
Oh soo good
              A bit more reading then the rain began.  Love a nice warm rain.
           Filled our water pail and I can wash our coach in the warm rain= perfect.
        Now time to whip up supper. Made a tasty salad and a couple shrimp kabobs for the Weber Q.
only a few minutes and they are done
now we had a feast, nice home cooked meal
        That was it for our fun day here in cottage country Ontario, sure is wonderful.
        Thanks for stopping in again.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this Spring and Summer.


  1. The lock area is so pretty. Those bake goods look delicious!!!

    1. This is an area that we love to hang out in and yes the baked goods are wonderful too.

  2. The market looked great - your pics describe it well....your weather must be OK as other bloggers are saying how hot it is?

    1. Thanks Leslie, temps here in low 80'sf (27c) perfect.

  3. George, you made good use of your time to photograph your walkabout while Suzie was getting a hair trim. Nice photos.

    We could use some of that rain you have been getting. It has been unseasonably hot and dry here on the west coast.

    1. Thanks Rene this is a nice area to walkabout, so scenic and peaceful.
      You can have some of our rain, no problem.
      The temperatures are very nice too.

  4. Nice water borne RVs. Too expensive for my blood, though.

  5. I could be happy in that little town and even happier with a dish of ice cream.

    1. This is a wonderful place to be, love small villages, and the ice cream? Nice treat too.

  6. I've always thought it would be nice to take a trip in a houseboat. It's on my to-do list but it'll probably be there a while. We can't seem to fit it in.

    1. We almost did that once years ago, but did not work out.


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