Saturday August 15, 2009-Out and About and Moving

In response to yesterday's question from Judy & Emma, the photo was taken at sunrise on the Scugog River at Lindsay, Ontario.

In response to Denise, another reader - we have internet satellite so we can have internet anywhere as long as we have a clear view of the southern sky.

Today we had places to go and things to do. First, we were to meet my sister at the church near the cottage for their annual yard sale. I usually find something to contribute to the sale and this year it was our weather station. Gordon decided it was too much trouble to put the wind thingy on the roof every time we moved and the numbers on the thermometer were very small so it was a good contribution for the church. I also bought a whole box of paperback books for $2.00. Bargain!

After that, Betty took us out for brunch for our upcoming birthdays in September and then we went to Buckhorn, ON for their fine art festival. It was an enjoyable afternoon.

The Full Cup Cafe in Bobcaygeon, Ontario where we had brunch

Buckhorn is a sort of artsy little town about 30 miles east northeast of the cottage. They have all kinds of craft fairs and art exhibitions at their community centre in the spring/summer/fall seasons.

There are several of these little buildings that they use to display the art. There is also art in the community centre itself. This is a juried exhibit.

Pretty flowers on the grounds

It was hot today. Our thermometer was recording 33C (91F).

We dropped Betty off as we had taken the truck and came home to find that the site that we had booked was now vacant so we proceeded to pack up and move.

Our new site

We are now in our full hookup site and can relax and enjoy our time here. I hate being unsettled. So we're situated until we leave here on September 10th.

When we got situated Gordon was talking to the owner and we've made our apologies to each other for the problems with the site and us being unhappy. They were having a corn roast tonight and we were invited so we went and had some corn.

When we came back we sat outside and had our fruit for desert and looked at our view.

I'm ready to enjoy my time here now.
