Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itBeautiful sunrise on another warm day , not as hot as its been but still in the high 70's F. (feeling like 81F) A nice walkabout the quiet village this morning and then shortly after 9 am Suzie hopped in the car to Woodstock about 30 minutes away to deliver 4 more of her Genealogy books.
I was checking back on my blogs and found the first time we stayed here at Johns' was a Canada Day party July 1st 2011, They used to have some huge parties here with bands, fireworks and about 200 people, You can check this posting HERE from 2012 (lotsa pictures) ever since 2011 we have been camping here. But no more large parties.
What is Canada Day ?July 1st is the Canada Day holiday, and commemorates the joining of Canada's original 2 provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the original Canada Province, now Ontario and Quebec) as one Nation in 1867.
And all over Canada this is celebrated in many different ways. Every town village, city, campground etc. has some events going on and right here in the Village of Plattsville a celebration in the town park tomorrow only a few blocks from where we are parked. And will be a fun time and hopefully the weather co-operates. We will of course have to go just because we can and we are here.
|this is what is going on tomorrow
|a nice early start to another warm summer day
|I stared another John Sandford Novel
|Love the Canadian Flags lining Albert (the main street) look nice
For supper tonight I thawed out some Lake Huron Pickerel (Walleye) and Suzie wanted fresh cut fries, no problem I can do this and we do love our fish and chips, especially local Pickerel. Fries cut up and rinse the starch out of them so they will fry up nice and crispy (fry twice) Fry Daddy preheated, and our Weber Q as well (too keep the fries warm while I do the fish), and some fresh asparagus, lemon and a grilled yellow pepper to go with it.
|finishing the fries
|grill the peppers, asparagus and lemon,
fish just about done
|that was it quick and easy
|nothing like a fresh cooked lightly breaded pickerel dinner
That was about it for most of our day now to enjoy more of this warm summer weather outside. Finish this posting back into our reading again, chat for a bit, listen to the birds and watch a few squirrels and bunnies running around. Before we call it a night in a couple of hours.
This sunset below I took last night about 9 pm just before heading inside. And maybe another one tonight will see what happens.
