It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Biking, Organizing and Enjoying Friends.


Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada. 

Sleeping with the windows open felt so wonderful last night. With the crazy fluctuations in the temperature around here it was so welcoming. We were both up by 8:00 this morning and even though the temp was going to start rising today it looked like the low north breeze would keep things comfortable. 
After having breakfast, it was back to watering the grass and flowers before it got too warm. When that was over I encouraged Kathy that it was also the coolest time of the day to go for a bicycle ride. Since we’ve been here other than an odd walk this has been our only form of exercise. Today we managed to ride every street in the park once and some we even managed to ride twice thus increasing our distance and we are still getting lots of waves as we ride by on our Tandem Bike. 
Wild rabbits playing across the street.
Back at the trailer we were sitting outside cooling down when our neighbour Linda came over to visit. We talked about where she and Terry had travelled to before he’d had his heart attacks. They had fond memories but because of the extent of damage he suffered they’ll likely never travel south again for the winters. 
After lunch I headed outside to reorganize the shed. With all the things that I’ve been working on lately it had gotten pretty crowded inside. Top that off with the organizers and tool boxes from the truck that I’d removed before they towed it away it was nearly impossible to get a single foot in the door. It took nearly the entire afternoon repacking the toolboxes and storage containers but now even with the extra containers being temporarily stored inside there is still plenty of space. 
pork roast and sautéed Portabella mushrooms with peppers and Spanish onions.
For supper we grilled a small pork roast with a clove of garlic on top on our Weber Q on low and slow just like our friend George from Awesome Travels tells everyone. It took just over the hour for the roast to cook through which gave Kathy time to sautee some Portabella Mushrooms along with a mix of peppers and Spanish onions. Everything was so delicious that it just melted in our mouths. 
Ever since Kathy and I have been camping we have always enjoyed having campfires. Since we have been here at Wildwood Golf and RV Park since the end of April there have been many times that we would have loved to have a fire but either we had other commitments or it was just too windy. Even though our area hasn’t had that much rain lately the little bit we’ve had in the last week was enough to lift the open fire ban. Tonight there was very little breeze. 
By the time I had the fire going Kathy had gotten the marshmallows ready for me to toast and they came out perfect. We don’t mind sharing our fires with friends and neighbours so first Ted came over for a brief chat. Then Terry and Linda brought their chairs over. Rick and Charlotte were returning from a walk and when Rick saw the fire starting to go down instead of letting me put another log or two on the fire he brought a big box of firewood a friend had left him. There were lots of jokes being said and laughter being had especially when we saw the wild rabbits frolicking across the street. Everyone was having such a good time it was a shock when someone mentioned that it was nearly 11:00. We’ll have to have more fires like that in the future. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

  1. In most places we stay a campfire is like inviting people over, or even sitting outside we always have people stop by.

  2. I love campfires but Paul not so much. He doesn't like the smell that lingers on his clothes. I say...Just wash them.

  3. Health does play a part on where or how far we travel. The sad thing is that it will happen to all of us.
