A cooler nights sleep but we both slept very well. Up at 6 am and put a pot of coffee on while I enjoyed my oatmeal. Then just before 7 am a small tap on the door. yup I figured Rob was here for some fresh brewed coffee. We always enjoy our morning coffees and chats with him when we are together. He headed back home shortly after 8 am. We puttered around a bit more computing just before 9 am then we headed to the Pinery Market in Grand Bend
today is their 3rd annual Bark-toberfest
if you like dogs and Beer this is the day to go.
And there was lots of dogs of all breeds and sizes all on leases and very well behaved, what a fun time enjoying all these dogs together seeming to enjoy this fun friendly day. I took way to many pictures and narrowed it down to still too many. But we had a very enjoyable morning.
Ran into Ron and Loree there (they did not bring Freddie) met the people along with them and carried on checking our all the dogs.
