Great day visiting with friends

Spent most of the day yesterday with our friends Doug and Nancy and his brother Dwayne and wife Agnes. Another one of our seasonal campers left yesterday, and then another couple of campers showed up towards the end of the day. You can sure tell that everybody is back at work and school!

We went for a walk around the park in the morning and out both of the cabin roads to have a look at some of the properties.

These two "cabins" are pretty fancy!

There are around 80 cabins on the park property. Some of them really are cabins and would sell for about $80k, others are full size houses worth upwards of $400k! Funny thing, is that you don't even own the property, only the house that is on the property. The cabin owners pay an annual lease fee to the park.

Many of the cabin owners have pulled in their docks for the season.

We've been having a real stretch of great weather. Sunny and 28C (82F) yesterday, and they're calling for 29C (84F) today which is close to a record high for this area at this time of year. Still, even with the great weather the campground is pretty much empty. Supposed to cool off to the seasonal highs of around 21C (70F) but still sunny this weekend, so we'll see if that brings any late season campers out.

Had a great happy hour with our friends and then we each made a dinner meal and shared it at the picnic table.

Dwayne, Agnes, Kevin, Ruth, Nancy. This is from their camera with Doug taking the photo.

Doug and Nancy still had a bottle of our favourite tequila and brought it along with them! We had a toast!

Lindsey sent us a camera phone pic of our 6 day old granddaughter Sadie! Sleeping peacefully!

    1. I wouldn't be surprised, Paula and Jerry there sure was lots of it. We had a great time, it was just what we needed to help tide us over until we are finished up here for the season.

  3. Sadie is such a little doll! I'm afraid Agnes is going to pop you on the head when she sees that you posted that photo of her eating! LOL! Looks like you all are having a great time! Grace (in Tucson)

    1. I wouldn't blame her if she did bop us over the head. I never even noticed that in the picture and for the life of me I can't figure out what it is that she is eating, we didn't have anything at the table that looked like that. Sure hope she doesn't end up hating us for it, lol!

    1. Lindsey calls that smile a sleep smile and apparently she does this a lot, I guess she is a pretty happy little baby.

      We are lucky to have such great friends, everywhere we go it seems. ;)

    1. Thank you Chris! Lindsey calls these smiles, sleep smiles. She seems to be a very content little girl and she shows it. :)

    1. Thank you Sft, she is a precious little thing for sure.

      At that point in time we didn't have a care in the world, we all just wanted to enjoy each other's company and live in the moment.

    1. I don't think so Contessa, Lindsey said it looks like the colour hers was in the pictures of when she was a baby so that would have been a sort of browny kind of colour, even though she ended up being blonde by the time she was a year old.

      Yes, it has been nice to be able to relax just a little bit. Hoping to get out in the canoe again before we leave.

  11. We can't thank you, Kevin and Ruth, enough for the fun! Like always, you made us feel so welcome and it was SO good to see you guys.

    Travel safe through this fine world and we look forward to seeing you, somewhere in Mexico!

    Great jacket, Ruth!

    1. It should be us thanking you and Doug. You brought Kevin beer and shared wine and tequila with us, we thought we had died and gone to heaven! :)

      We are so glad that you came to visit and also Dwayne and Agnes, it was so fun to get together with all of you and just relax and enjoy ourselves. Take care on your drive back home and enjoy visiting your relatives along the way.

      We look forward to seeing you both again in the future too.
