     Today is actually the anniversary of the day we moved out of our house and officially went fulltime. 13 years ago. I will post about that tomorrow.

     Wow really  did it  this morning all  these fun times campfires and visiting are wearing us out I actually slept until 7:15 this morning!!! Almost 3 hours later than normal.
      Last night after supper about 7:00 pm the band started playing on the outdoor stage by the club House  . The Bon Jovi Tribute band We went down to check them out for a while listened to a few songs, not songs we knew though. They were good, and Rock N Roll is not our favorite, and too loud for us, we had options, so we decided to head down to last campfire our friends were having. 3 couples leaving in the  morning. John, Wendy, Ken Kim and Larry and Diane.
they were right into it
nicely set up on the covered stage here.
they were selling Hamburgs and hot dogs there as well.
lots of people came down,
lawn chairs and enjoyed the music
Joe, Nelly, Gerry, his grand daughter and Melinda
enjoying the music
so heading the fire I grabbed a couple of soft ice cream cones
just because
we enjoying the campfire and other  family showed up
Nicole. Keith and their son
nice to see them again
a good lively group
enjoying the campfire and
always lotsa laughs
another great campfire.
    We enjoyed great campfire and could still hear the band as well. and we ,managed to stay there until 9:36 pm , the latest for us everyone was surprised.
     Now Sunday morning after a great nights sleep we headed into the Pinery Flea market just because it was a beautiful warm summer day always enjoy it there. And always new stuff to see or things we want.

not too busy yet 
     Then we ran into Bill, Barb, Larry, Diaane as well as Nicole, Kieth, their son and daughter.
love it here under the trees
       We picked up a few things, freestone peaches, extra hot pepperettes, and one of these pizzas' we have seen before, Nice thin crust and can do on our Weber Q
lots of pizza varieties here.
       Back home we enjoyed a nice tasty light lunch and very tasty juicy peaches.
we do enjoy these Freestone peaches when in season
      Now to relax in the afternoon shade with a nice breeze. temperature is 89 F feels like 104 F. yup it is warm for sure. Sunday most of the weekend campers are heading home so the campground is getting much quieter now, just the way we like.
pretty peaceful now after the busy weekend
     A bit later the cat lady here walked by and gave us a few fresh veggies right from her garden like she does pretty well every year, thank you so much again!
fresh tomatoes and cucumber from her garden
Ron and Joe stopped by for a short chat
nice to see them again stop by
Gerry and Alyia, plus Tucker stopped by7 today  day as well
Tucker in the shade under our coach
too hot for him
     No happy hour today with Bill and Barb winds picked up and major storm predicted, But eventually the storms went north and south of us, we were saved!
    Then at 4:45 time to whip up a salad and grill a couple of bone in pork chops, 2 minutes a side and they turned out real tasty, Got a  deal on these 6 chops for 5 bucks , I could not turn that down. 3 tasty meals for us.
Nice chops seasoned with our Grub Rub from Texas we like
not long on our Weber Q
tasty and tender
added to our salad and shared a peach
did the trick tonight
    We actually enjoyed a very relaxing day and with the storm gone by will probably join Bill and Barb for a final campfire with them before they head out in the morning.
    Glad that you took the time to check us out and just know y'all had a great day as well.

 Where have we been this Summer ?


  1. You had the best of both worlds...socializing with your friends by the campfire and being able to enjoy the music at the same time.

    Gerry is truly a doting grandfather Alyia is the true winner in this she is going to have wonderful memories of her childhood with both Gerry and Melinda.

    Bet those hats at the Pinery Flea Market are made in Mexico. Enjoy the last night with your friends.

    1. Thanks Ms Belinda we sure did.
      Yes we did enjoy both of those things, Gerry spends so much quality time with her she will have some wonderful memories. Yes the hats sure were made in mexico as are most straw hats I have found.

  2. Nice looking peaches!, we passed thru Palisade CO in time for their most excellent farmer's market. The western slopes of the CO Rockies produce the best peaches we've had.
    The 'tribute' bands are sometimes very good, if you know and like the music.

    1. These peaches are fro m Niagara area in Intraio famous for their peaches and wines. Nice that you found a good farmer's market. Ww have seen few Tribute gand that we enjoyed. These guys were good just not music we knew.

  3. I used to love Rock n Roll but man loud music makes my nerve go crazy LOL must be that old age thing. But you did have a nice weekend and found other things to enjoy.

    1. Never really cared for this hard rock, but yes I guess that age thing creeps up on us. We still had a busy weekend.

  4. Congratulations on your 13 years!

  5. Love those flea markets. They just don't do that down in like they do in Canada. Your chops look fabulous as always. Bon Jovi is the favorite of my friends kids. I think we are one generation too old to enjoy music that loud!! At least you put in an appearance!! Probably more than I would have done.

    1. We do have some wonderful Fleamarkets/farmer's markets. The chops were excellent again. I agree with you about the loud music, but then each generation seems to have their own music. I just wanted to go down and check them out being right here in the campground.

  6. Be careful not to wear yourselves out.

    1. Some quiet times this week to recharge or batteries.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
