   After last nights rain it cooled down and we had some sunshine to begin our last morning here in Plattsville. Got some coffee and computing done and even a a nice walkabout town. Then back home we secured our coach, hooked up the car and headed on out to Durham Ontario close to 9:30.
     Strange weather,  we had sunshine, rain, drizzle, sunshine, rain, sunshine, wet roads and dry roads. No traffic though other than lots of Mennonites on the side of the road in their various horse and buggy combinations, most are very unique.
love these quiet country roads
Mennonite limo we passed
this be a mennonite 2 seater sports buggy
     Heading into Durham spotted the Giants chair on the roadside. Giant not here.
did not see the giant though
          We arrived at The Ridge, Bill (On Our Way) and Patsy's (Chilling with Patsy) a beautiful landscaped and decorated summer place they enjoy, shortly after 11 am. Good friends and fellow full-time river's. Always fun to visit with these guys, we were here last summer and have spent some time together at Rock Glen Resort as well as some fun desert times together in the southwest desert.
      Also here was our good mutual friends Rob and Pat, who we have camped with for quite a few years over many states from Florida, Texas, Arizona and places in between.
pulling in the laneway a truck was there unloading
lumber so I waited for him to leave
now clear sailing right to the place where we can park
       After dumping our sewage at their dump station we good to go.  
       We pulled in and got all set up, had a bite to eat for lunch chatted with Bill and Patsy and watched the guys working on a new shed/workshop for Bill. They are making good progress even with the off and on again light drizzle. We even got to sit outside for a while, read a bit, Clemson came to visit a few times as well.

Bill Hard at work
     Clemson spotted us here and came or to investigate . sniffing around.
he got on Suzie's knee that he likes to do
even gives her a nice kiss what a sweetie he is
the guys are making progress with the shed
this be the entrance 
here we are all comfy and lotsa room
      I wandered around for a while and checked out Patsy's garden all is looking so beautiful.
          Shortly after 4 pm our good friends Rob and Pat came back to their trailer right beside us. We created then and got together  for a fun Happy Hour, with them along will Bill and Patsy..
happy hour fun flapping out gums
now this is an awesome fresh tomato from Patsy's Garden
   Then the to whip up supper , tonight grilled a couple of bone in pork chops, to go with our salad.

     Supper done and dishes done we joined Bill, Patsy, Rob and Pat by a wonderful campfire, It was actually a very mild night and the rain had stopped.

again more stories told and a few laughs as usual
Then a nice sunset, soon the to call it a night
   About 9:30 we headed back home  just to kick back relax and call it  night.
