    Another great sleep and we are excited to get on the road again. Got  a short walkabout first thing this morning then puttered round and began getting ready. to get going again.
     Our plan today was to head north, and all the traffic, by pass Grand bend and follow NWY 21 along Ontario's west coast  of Lake Huron.
a nice drive we have not done for many years
a wonderful quiet country drive
Passed by Hayter's Turkey Farm where we get our Turkey Burgers 
north on hwy 21 along the  west coast
Lake Huron in the distance
          Then passed through Bayfield  honked our horn and waved for the Bayfield Bunch , will not stop by uninvited  and were on a mission anyway.
Al, Kelly and Feebs not far from here
Hi guys!

     Then we stopped in a Goderich plaza, relaxed bit enjoyed a light tasty lunch.Then headed north on Hwy 21.

        Taking the back roads to visit with Suzie's Uncle Clare and Cathy.
         We arrived shortly after 1 pm and enjoyed some catching up conversation  with them, It has been a few years. This be Suzie's  Dad's youngest brother.
Clare and Cathy
       We got parked and the lot next door had a couple of "looking horses" as Clare called them , more like pets to just look at.
nice looking horses right beside us
     For supper tonight Suzie wanted me to make up a bunch of pork back ribs for them ,  not a problem. I got them on sale last week so ready to go. Wrapped in foil with sauerkraut on the Weber q outside. for a couple of hours, threw on some potatoes to bake sliced up some fresh fresh tomatoes and cucumber.
taters and ribs on our Weber Q
while this was cooking we
 flapped our gums catching up
ribs fall off the bone tender on
 to the grill mat to glaze wit a tasty sauce
         Ok now we had a feast oh so tasty.
Cathy made some Blueberry cheesecake to end this feast
was excellent

Inside we enjoyed a very tasty meal
ending with  Blueberry Cheesecake from Cathy
   Another fun day reconnecting with Uncle Clare and Cathy out here in the country close to Owen Sound.
  Thanks for stopping by, this had been a long day and probably many typos but too late and internet too slow for me to proof read, it is what it is.
     Hope y'all had a great day as well.
