More warm and sunny weather today getting ramped up for the long weekend. Friday July 1st is Canada Day in Canada (of course) and Monday the 4th of July in the States. So traffic everywhere this weekend will be "insane" on the road (glad we are not travelling) and parties both sides of the border, with amazing weather in the forcecast.
And of course a Happy 4th of July to all our American friends.
First thing this morning to beat the crowds and traffic I headed into Lakefield (just down the road) to check out the Thursday Farmer's market.
Picked up some fresh picked strawberries here and a few groceries and back home just after 10 am. The girl at Mcleans Berry farm told me she picks berries from 2 am till sunrise, then to market, closes at 2 pm. She has a nap then picks more berries. Busy people, "make hay while the sunshines"
The the market has some free Canada day treats. How about some fresh strawberries dipped in white chocolate, got 2 one for me and one for Suzie.
Cruised around town for a bit down by the river. Lakefield is a very pretty town. People fishing by the river, and boats out cruising around, so peaceful.
|Or free Canada Day cupcakes too..|
|nice houseboat just heading out|
Home by 10 am and we went through stuff that we can part with. In the campground tomorrow community yard sale, so we will set stuff out, could be a treasure for somebody, we have a few things that need to go.
Nice light lunch, read in the shade and a couple more walkabouts, the campers are coming in all day, apparently they will be full this weekend (no surprize).

Our friend Pat got back from the farm today and brought me some fresh early garlic from her garden. And it is so good! Love it! Thanks Pat.!

We had a fun Happy hour celebrating Gary's birthday but time for us to head home, whip up supper. I know other's stayed longer.
I had marinated a Pork tenderloin to grill on our Weber Q, and it was calling our names. Along with that I grilled a sweet potato to add to our green salad. For the pork tenderloin recipe click HERE

That was our Pre- Canada Day day, before the crowds arrive. Even though we had no plans this morning we sure were busy. Hope your long weekend is a good one for you as well. Be safe if you are on the road.
