Just a few shots of our Canada Day celebrations up at the lake. I was going to post them earlier but had a user problem accessing the pictures on the new laptop. It has Windows 8...what a learning curve it has turned into for this near pensioner! Oh My!
Finally found them with the help of one of my RV neighbours...thank goodness!
Flags were flying all around the resort.
The singer was a sort of country music, hillbilly, and square dance type of music all rolled into one. He had that old fashioned nasal twangy voice you often hear in old western movies. I half expected him to say Do-Si-Do or Allemande Left, at any given moment. It was only when we were back home that I remembered that the TaLana Bay Twirlers (square dancers) are just a couple of miles up the road...so he very well could have been a square dance caller!
It was good fun...I quite enjoyed the little step back in time!
I did manage to get a picture of Little Miss C as she set out for the parade. She was very proud of how her bike turned out and excited to ride in her very first parade. Little Mr P preferred to watch...he was not into the decorating or the riding about. In his defense, it was about 36 degrees that day and on the pavement it felt much hotter.
Her brother had a really cute skateboarder with a Canadian flag board tee shirt too...but he hates having his picture taken!!!
The marina moorage slips you can see are only available to the small handful of marina frontage homes and to those who have bought their boat through the marina. This is the only marina within a 30 minute drive so they can be as picky as they like...It is always full!
We have been very lucky to be able to book temporary moorage to cover the times when we have guests up to visit. There are only 6 slips or so that are not owned, so not quite sure how we have been able to be that lucky...but are certainly blessed to have that option. The rest of the time the boat sits on our driveway and DH uses the public boat launch to put it in the water to go fishing.
