    Another good nights sleep and up about 5:30 this morning 52F outside,  Just puttering around computing for a while then into Starthroy to pick up and HDMI cable to hook up Suzie's computer to our smart tv. Hooked that up and is it ever nice and can now view here computer on our 32 inch TV, That sure makes a wonderful computer monitor!
     Back home Suzie was chatting with new Neighbours Mark and Nichol . They are picking our brains (the little we have) about going fulltime and travelling in the south and membership parks. Has some questions about their shaw satellite dish, how to light the propane oven in their trailer etc....
     After lunch I headed down to the amazing fitness centre for a nice one hour work out. My finger is now almost like new again and ready for this much needed exercise. Then to relax out side on the wonderful very warm fall day. Sunny and a comfortable fall day at 75F back in shorts again , enjoying our page turners in the shade, sure was nice no complaints here..
love this amazing fitness centre here included with our membership
        So quiet here  after the weekend, Our freinds Rob and Pat left early and later on Paul and Judy headed out as well. Will see this guys later this year or on down the road some where.
Love it when the campground is so quiet
   After lunch I filled our 5 gallon jug of RO (reverse osmosis purified water) we use for drinking and making our coffees. At the corner store in town, this is the only water we drink for the last 13 plus years.
we have a spot inside with a pump
to fill our jug for the fridge
a perfect warm fall day, short were the dress code today
even hotter tomorrow
            After a quiet Happy hour, just the 2 of us we chatted for a while then, a bit later time to whip up supper, tonight a couple of shrimp burgers on English muffins with some seafood sauce I make so easy, ketchup, horseradish and lemon juice. perfect.
not long these shrimp burgers are done
 english muffins warm in foil

     Another amazing very warm fall day outside, chatting with neighbours and a quiet happy hour enjoying our page turners.
     Hope you enjoyed you day and want to thank you for stopping on by.

      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.
