Arriving by 9:05 on schedule, we were greeted by Donna and Gerry, and Audrey and Tom from Montreal. We set up the Designer for the weekend, visited over a lovely campfire and shared the evening together.
Friday morning, up and at 'em!
and I said our goodbyes, leaving the men to their boy weekend, and headed to Chatsworth for ours. I always take too many clothes and this year was no different, with the weather person playing games with what we should expect. I had a jam-packed suitcase plus a camera bag and another carryall. I was pleased to see that Aj also had the same amount of pieces loaded in Donna's Honda even though I'm sure mine was heavier!!
Gayle and John own a cosy cottage style three + bedroom home just on the outskirts of Chatsworth with a pond and 50 acres of property. Beautiful little spot, quite a change for them from their previous lifestyle in the busy city of St. Catharine's.

Monday morning was a pack-up, clean-up, go to meet our men morning with sweet hugs at our arrival. The weekend couldn't have gone better and the weather person was wrong once again as it turned out rain-free except during the overnight hours!
Plans have already begun for our 2015 gathering!
Thanks for stopping in, I'm happy to 'see' you.
