Our First Family Day at the Cottage

Garth owns two cottages side by side. This is the one that is used for company and when his daughters come to visit with their families. Looks pretty, doesn't it?

Today was a strange day weather-wise. We had sun, rain, wind and all combinations thereof. It was quite cool at around 21C (70F). At 9:00 p.m. the temperature is now down to 10C (50F).

I felt quite good today and went out for a walk around the park. There are several trailers and park models for sale in the park so I checked them out. There is one that is for sale that has a good view of the Scugog River but the trailer itself isn’t much.

We got ready to go to the cottage for 3:00 p.m. Nick and Becky arrived shortly after we did and Margie, John and Danica arrived about 5:45 p.m. We had really good hamburgers and baked beans for dinner with all the trimmings and ice cream and fruit for dessert. We tried to go for two walks before dinner and then after and got rained out both times.

The waves were really coming in off Sturgeon Lake this afternoon

Since it was really windy and raining we were concerned about our awning which we had left out but well staked (so we thought) so we left the cottage early. Upon arrival one of the stakes had come out of the ground but no damage was done and one leg of the tripod that holds the satellite dish had let go so the satellite dish had to be repointed but other than that all was okay, thank goodness!

Today would have been our Mom’s 89th birthday. She passed away in 2002.
