Another really hot one but Pheebs and I rolled out early enough to take advantage of morning's slightly cooler temperature. We headed straightaway north to Goderich's Rotary Cove beach where I knew there would be a nice cooling breeze coming in off the lake. And there was. Not many week-enders there yet so we were able to spend a little quiet time by the water before cars began rolling in.

|LOOKS LIKE ART'S LANDSCAPING IS DOING A RIGHT GOOD BANG UP JOB WITH THE NEW BOARDWALK BETWEEN ST. CHRISTOPHER'S BEACH AND ROTARY COVE|
|I THINK THIS BOARDWALK IS BEING BUILT MUCH STRONGER THAN THE ORIGINAL ONE|
|NOTICE HOW CONCRETE, CRUSHED STONE, AND DRAINAGE PIPE, ARE BEING INCORPORATED INTO THE STURDY CONSTRUCTION|
We took the scenic countryside route home snapping a few pics along the way. A beautiful looking summer's morn with very little traffic anywhere. A couple hay wagons and that was about it.

Home by 10 Kelly was busy inside the rig trying out different curtains and stuff. The curtains you see in the pics below may not be the one's staying in the coach. Despite the building heat I decided to check out a few system things on the rig. Hooked up to shore power and that worked fine except for a few of the usual small ker-fuffles. It's a manual water fill on this rig so I added some water to the fresh water tank. The rig's water pump works perfectly. Generator fires up with just a touch of the on-switch. Tomorrow we'll check out the propane system and see how it goes. That can sometimes be a tricky bit of business getting things to work if it hasn't been used for awhile.
|AND THESE WAGONS ARE WHAT THE WHEAT KEARNELS ARE LOADED INTO|
|HERE THE CURTAINS ARE OPEN|
|HERE THEY ARE CLOSED.....BY CLOSING THEM AT NIGHT THEY KEEP EITHER WARMTH OR COOLNESS IN THE CENTER PART OF THE COACH.....NO NEED TO HEAT THE BIG SPACE OVER THE CAB AND YES THE CURTAINS HAVE TO BE HEMMED IF THEY ARE STAYING|
|THIS CURTAIN BLOCKS OFF THE BIG BED IN THE CORNER|
I think Pheebs and I might head over to Clinton with the rig in the morning. There is a free dump station near the new police station and I want to check out the gray and black dump valves to make sure everything is copasetic in that department. We might pick up some propane along the way as well just to make sure there are no surprises in that department either. Seems to be some recent confusion as to what tanks can be filled and what tanks can't. We'll see.
|WELL I GUESS YOU KNOW WHO'S GOT FIRST DIBS ON MY CHAIR|GROANER'S CORNER:(( Oh Those McNallys::
McNally was taking his first plane ride, flying over the Rocky Mountains. The stewardess handed him a piece of chewing gum. "It's to keep your ears from popping at high altitudes," she explains. When the plane landed McNally rushed up to her. "Miss," he said, "I'm meetin' me wife right away. How do I get the gum out of me ears?"Just a week before that McNally was standing in front of Cohan's Tavern when he saw a driverless car rolling slowly down the street. He ran to the car, jumped in, and pulled on the emergency brake with a jerk.
Kelly got out and very proudly said to the man approaching him, "I stopped it!"
"I know, you idiot!" said the man. "I was pushing it!"
And just a month before that, McNally's daughter knelt in the confessional and said, "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned." "What is it, child?"
"Father, I have committed the sin of vanity. Twice a day I gaze at myself in the mirror and tell myself how beautiful I am."
The priest turned, took a good look at the girl, and said, "My dear, I have good news. That isn't a sin - it's only a mistake."
Love the photo of the horses - that is a keeper for sure. By the way, I think the rock at Rotary Cove beach should be named after the Bayfield Bunch who saved it.ReplyDelete
That's an old dependable side delivery hay rake. I sure enjoy the farm pics.ReplyDelete
It looks like the Ontario propane regulations problem may have been fixed in 2018. If your fill guy gives you a problem, show him this... https://www.ontariorvda.ca/what-we-do/rv-regulations/ReplyDelete
