      Now enjoying the wonderful back country drive to Patsy and Bill's Ridge, to meet up with some good friends we have camped with many times over the years.
gotta love these quiet roads to travel
       Passing through Chesley Ontario right past BIG Bruce ,always nice to see him again.

     Headed into Hanover and stopped by the Canadian Tire gas bar fuel our coach for a good price, Seeing it was noon, we parked for a bit and enjoyed a light tasty lunch before carrying on to Patsy and Bills. Arriving there just after 1 pm. A bit of a detour around Durham past the conservation area that we know well.
nice relaxing country driving

    1. Yes Nancy lotsa fun times for us, now just need a few more plus you and we will be back together again.

  7. It was a short visit with Suzie's aunt and uncle. How nice that the owners of The Ridge are able to host a large number of friends at their property. I am sure it is going to be a very enjoyable stay.

    1. A short visit is better than none, It has been a few years, plus they had there daughter and grands arrive as well. And At the Ridge Patsy and Bill are full-time as well, have the room and enjoy the company in the summer. We always connect somewhere in the winter as well.
