Friday and Saturday, Tranquil Acres, Almonte, Carleton Place and Around Smiths Falls

I didn't sleep worth a darn Thursday night so I wasn't in good shape on Friday. However, we picked Dee & Jim up about 1:30 p.m. and took them to Tranquil Acres which was our home park when we were fulltiming. We met the owners and they said we could go ahead and walk around the park.

The frogs just sat there like they were in a daze

Our old RV is still there

Now sitting in one place all year

Pretty flowers look like bells

I miss the gardens
 While we were out Dee was able to get a lot of barn photos.

I took one of this 'solar' farm

We drove to Almonte and walked around the town there. Almonte is the birthplace of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball.

Almonte is a pretty little town on the Mississippi River. I've posted lots of photos of it before both in summer and winter.

A garden of beautiful multi-coloured lupins

The Town Hall is a beautiful old building
 From there we went to Carleton Place as we had some shopping to do and Carleton Place has the closest Superwalmart to us. Then back to Smiths Falls to drop Dee & Jim off.

Today (Saturday) we went to tai chi then I picked Dee up to go to the Farmer's Market but everyone was gone so we went off to do some other shopping, looking and driving around for a couple of hours before driving her back to the RV. No photos today but Dee might have some.

I spent the rest of the afternoon reading, having a nap and watering my flowers.

Tomorrow is another day!
