On Sunday, Aug. 11th I wonder who says it is a day of rest? Bill and I did sleep in until the clock was saying 7:30. I went for a walk and Bill got up and made his coffee. It was only 49F/10C but with no wind, it felt wonderful! The walk was great even though I kicked myself that I didn’t take my zoom lens camera. Yes, there were at least 2 deer off in the field. I tried with my camera to capture them.
|a beautiful day for a walk|
When I returned to our road, I saw Loree and Freddy coming out for their walk. We greeted and went our separate ways.
|and the deer were out there|
I needed a Zoom
|I think I know those two!|
|A couple of cutie Patooties|
George and Suzie were hooking up their tow vehicle by the time I was almost finished my tea so I got out my tripod and set it up with my camera. It was group picture time and then our first camper pulled out at 9 am.
|What a great looking gang!|
br - George, Bill, Ken
mr - Ron and Loree in king chairs
fr - Suzie, Pat, Rob, Kim, Patsy
|Rob came back with his truck|
|The ice cream was good|
Gerry and Donna were happy to provide a tour of their other property, taken with oohs and aahs from the Fonts. Of course, Freddy loved the place. As Loree says, his wonderful vacation adventure just keeps going on and on. He is so happy and relaxed up here. We didn’t stay long but invited them back for Happy Hour. As it turned out, I forgot my big camera there so was happy that they had an excuse to join us.
|I forgot to say that Freddy enjoyed the cone too|
When we returned, Loree, Bill and I had a Butter Pecan ice cream cone. Loree has been offering them since she arrived and I was looking forward to it.
|Bill hung our gift from Ron and Loree|
and it blends in so well
We began Happy Hour around 4 and it was another great one. Loree gave my sister and Gerry a tour of their new trailer. Lynn went with Carm on the Spyder for dinner and the rest of us hung tight here, holding down the fort.
|Bill was happy to get his Stinson Reliant running|
The boys (including Freddy) were drawn to it
|Freddy is so relaxed here|
|Bill wheeled his monster plane up to show us|
|It is so pretty!|
I plugged us in to power so I could use Madame IP for pork chops. These two are really thick so there was no question how I would cook them. A spicing first, then sauté. Next I added chicken broth then the chops and cooked for 5 minutes before doing a quick release. I removed the lid and placed the inner pot with corn on the cob on top of the chops. Another 5 minutes and then a 5-minute release.
|Happy Hour with snacks today|
L to R
Rob, Bill, Loree, Freddy, Lynn, Pat, my chair, Donna, Gerry, Ron
My fingers were crossed but that didn’t work. The chops were overdone for me and the corn a smidge underdone. Hmm, this I.P. is still a learning experience so good thing I'm in it for the challenge! Bill enjoyed his dinner and I can say that with another 2 minutes on the corn, I also had a nice one. We cleaned up the dishes and at 8 Bill went out to light a campfire. By the way I’m feeling, it won’t be a late night tonight although our last night with Ron and Loree so we will take what we can get.
|Freddy follows Bill closely|
that is a treat bag!
|Shake a paw, Freddy!|
|And a downy woodpecker found the suet|
|The sky was mild tonight and then the stars came out|
The moon is preparing to be full in a few nights
Good night all!
Thank you for stopping in to see what this gang is up to!
