With cool temps & overcast skies I figured it was a good morning to tackle the Motorhome wash job. Had myself psyched to go. Moved the rig up close to the house, out with the garden hose & bucket of suds. Had my tall step ladder in place & no sooner had I topped the ladder with my hose & scrub brush when down came the rain. I had forgot to check the weather:((
TOLD YOU I PULLED THE RIG UP CLOSE TO THE HOUSE
Fortunately our little downpour lasted less than half an hour & I was soon back outside & right at it. Having to wash a big RV is one of those things I will not miss someday when our RVing days are behind us. Oh if only we could have started our RV travels at a much younger age how many more things we could have done, places we could have seen, & adventurous roads we could have travelled. And I’m betting I am not alone with those thoughts.
JUST ONE SIDE LEFT TO WASH
After publishing Saturday night's post Pheebs & I took another drive down around the Bayfield harbor & through the little village itself snapping a few more photos as we cruised along main street a distance of maybe 3 blocks & a total traveling time of 48.2 seconds. Lots of cars parked on both sides of the street with people casually browsing along the sidewalks taking in small town Bayfield's bustling Saturday night ambience. As the crow flies we live maybe 2 miles to the northeast of Bayfield in a small mobile home community tucked nicely away in the neighboring rural country side.
IT WAS DUSK WHEN PHEEBS & I TOOK A DRIVE DOWN TO THE HARBOR
SATURDAY NIGHT ON THE BAYFIELD BEACH
HEADING SOUTH ALONG BAYFIELD’S VERY WIDE MAIN STREET
ONE OF TWO FAVORITE ICE CREAM SHOPS OF OURS
LOTS OF FINE OLD ARCHITECTURE IN BAYFIELD & THIS IS THE POPULAR ALBION HOTEL WHICH COMES WITH IT’S VERY OWN GHOST STORY
The Sarnia folks are coming to pick up little Jeepers Monday & I’m sad to see her go but needs & priorities change & it was time for us to move on to another vehicle. Many times in my posts I have said that little Jeep Wrangler was my most fun favorite vehicle of all times & it’s true. I’ve had many, many vehicles but this Jeep is the one I will remember the most. Always reliable & always pretty much took us to any place we wanted to go. Not modified in any way it was a tough little nut traversing many a desert jeep trail & winding mountain road. Took Pheebs & I on many a gravel back country road right around here where we live in Bayfield Ontario. Nothing fancy on Jeepers & it sure didn’t have anything resembling modern day bells & whistles. It was simple & that is what I liked about it. Reminded me so much of my very first car back in the early 60’s, a 61 VW Beetle. That one didn’t even have a gas gauge. I can only hope the fella who bought it who incidentally is maybe around my age or a bit younger will have as much fun with Jeepers as we did these past nearly 5 years. Thanks for the memories Jeepers & thanks for being such a good friend all those years. Yes, we are all going to miss you here at the Bayfield Bunch. And I have a feeling all your many friends out here in Blogland are going to miss you as well……………………………..
THIS WAS JEEPERS LAST DAY WITH US
GROANER’S CORNER:(( The cruise ship docked at a Mexican port during a very high tide. Everyone on board was forced to use the ship's narrow gangplank as a passageway to the dock far below. The staff stood motionless when a passenger in her 70's appeared at the top of the plank. There wasn't room for anyone to assist her, so she edged along slowly and finally made it to the dock safely, to everyone's relief. As she stepped down, she turned, looked back to the top of the gangplank and shouted, "It's okay, Mother, you can come down now."
Your photos of Bayfield leave the impression that it has one or more very good paint suppliers, and probably one or more very good painting companies as well. Of course you didn't take pictures of the scruffier-looking businesses, but your images give the impression of an active and fun business community. Maybe the local Chamber of Commerce would be interested in them? :-)ReplyDelete
Have always loved wondering the shops in Bayfield,ReplyDelete
Always a sad time to leave a vehicle, but like you I have had quite a few dozen too.
One of the good things about coming North along I5 is that our RV gets washed by the rain.ReplyDelete
I think I like Bayfield! Thanks Al for removing Sitemeter!ReplyDelete
I think I might have to visit Bayfield. Very nice looking town.ReplyDelete
Definitely a cute little town - love the architecture as well! I think the fun cars I've had over the years are the ones I miss the most - a Miata and a Wrangler top the list of those. It's the adventures they take us on that make them so endearing I think.ReplyDelete
It's a quaint little town and I really like the look of The Little Inn of Bayfield. You'll build more memories in the Libbygator.ReplyDelete
