     Just more wonderful weather here, no complaints at all. 60F (15c) outside at 6 am not too bad at all. Dud get uo to 85f later today, love this.
      After checking emails and a bunch of coffee I took a nice walk down the country road here to Baptist Church road and there church.No cows in the field this morning and was a very nice peaceful walk.
the Baptist church at the end of the road
some nice wildflowers by the side of the road
       A little bit later a quick trip into the Foodland in Durham only a few miles down the road, pick up some milk (Almond Milk) and a loaf of bread.
        While in town I drove around the corner to check out the conservation area. Just above the dam they have a wonderful day use beach, and it is FREE. we like free. Now if I could only talk Suzie into going to the beach it would be wonderful, hmm think not.
a beautiful beach here right in town 
         Home to putter around for a bit, whipped up a nice light lunch and I had some energy to finish polishing and waxing the right , lower  side of our coach. No ladder needed and it was all done in an hour. Feels good now to get our coach all polished and waxed again.
love the shine
      Now to relax a bit in the shade with our e-readers.
First doggie fix for Suzie with Clemson
      Then about 1:30 this afternoon Gerry, Melinda and Tucker pulled in to visit for a couple of days.
Gerry backing in
Patsy welcoming them
Gerry, yes it is nice to see you guys again too
Now Suzie has Clemson on her knee and Tucker under her chair
double doggie fix !
almost looks like a campground here,
3 rv's now
       Of course we all get together just before 4 pm, what do we do? Happy Hour,  chat, catch up share stories, tell jokes and pick on Gerry!
lotsa laughs  then soon time to whip up supper
Tucker followed Suzie home for a few rubs
Just before time for supper, the skies clouded over, major thunder and lightening
but only a few small sprinkles of rain
      Supper tonight a lean pork tenderloin (got on sale yesterday) and a salad. Another of our favourite meals.
        Like to use the grill mat for this, helps to keep the grill clean.
not long on the grill and done perfectly 150f internal temp
is so moist and tender
tasty? Yup ans leftovers as usual
      After supper Bill got a nice campfire going, so we just had to join them.
And Clemson right back on her knee again.
we have a wonderful roaring for tonight
perfect with no winds
Now Clemson on Gerry's knee,
good thing Tucker did not see him
          Just another perfect day , great weather with good friends and another wonderful sunset again.
     That was just another day hanging out here with friends enjoying each other's company.
      Thanks for stopping by again.

     Another day of pretty perfect weather. Got the coffee and computing mostly done  and out for my first walkabout before 7 am. Down the lane and west to Baptist Church road and back. Love the quiet peaceful country side here the only noise I heard was the bur frogs in the pond and the cows mooing in the field down the road on the other side.
whatcha looking at?
back to doing what they do best, eat
this guy was catching his back on a branch
nice peaceful country road 
the reeds by the pond
the pond so scenic, listening to the bullfrogs
when I got back there is Clemson on Suzie's knee
more doggie fix
     Puttered around for a while then we took a drive with Bill and Patsy over to Acreage to get some water for their Suite. They have a 50 gallon water bladder that they fill and pump it into the 100 gallon holding tank. This way they don't have to move their trailer to do so. Pretty easy.
this is a first, Clemson on my knee 
water bladder ready to fill

takes only a few minutes then full
this works pretty slick, and folds flat for storage
now just hook up a pump and fill their water tank
         Now this all done by 10 I made a quick trip into town for a few food items we needed.
love this mural at the main intersection of Durham
     Then just before 3pm into Durham to visit another RV couple we all know and spent time with over the years especially last winter in the southwest desert. Rob and Pat. Always nice to get us all together again when ever we can.
Clemson loves sitting in Suzi'e knee
       Then at Rob and Pats place in Durham for Happy hour. And Pasty's sister Donna and Gerry stopped by to join us. Another sister of Patsy's. We slowly meeting a lot of her family.
Rob and Patsy
Suzie, Pat and Bill
Bill , Donna and Gerry,. time for refreshment
oh and a few snacks for Happy hour
a well trained doggie dancing
       For supper tonight a couple of Wagyu and Lobster burgers. I saw at a Presidents choice store yesterday and wanted to give them a try. For info on these you can click HERE. Not too bad but mostly beef , they were extremely tasty and moist, no compliants here. Would be buy the, again? Maybe we still have 2 more.
a few minutes of our Weber Q 
because we could added a few french fries, fry Daddy right here
 and dressed the burgers they were very tasty
        After supper just puttering around relaxing and reading for a while then we had expected company. A fellow blogger we have all followed for quite a few years.
          The Fury Gnome of Season's in the Valley  stopped by for a wonderful visit and actually meet us 3 bloggers face to face. What a fun time we had.
Patsy showing FG around
Bill, Furry Gnome, Mrs. Fury Gnome and Patsy

just before they left I grabbed a shot, Bill, Mrs. FG, Suzie, Patsy and the Furry Gnome himself.
yes he is a real person.
     What a fun time chatting like we could have done for hours. as fellow bloggers we have a feeling that we know a bit of these people and what they do. Really do enjoy his blog her takes some amazing photos, in and around southern Ontario, Georgian Bay and the Niagara escarpment .
now to wind up a wonderful day with friends and great weather
we have an amazing sunset
       These wonderful summer days just keep happening, Really gotta love it.
