We decided to spend Sunday night at another fine spot courtesy of Boondockers Welcome:
|Nice parking pad, from an old grain bin|
Monday morning we had a meeting at the Bayfield Mews with the builder, with a walk-through of an almost-finished unit similar to ours. Mostly this was about floor choices, wiring locations etc.
Definite signs of progress on our block under construction at the Mews:
After the foundations are all filled up and packed in, final plumbing and in-floor heating is added, then the floor slab is poured. Once that happens progress will be more easily seen.
Then in the afternoon on Monday it was back to Port Elgin for Cathie's dental surgery. This was to repair an old root canal that had gone bad. Not fun, but the procedure went well, and seems to be healing as it should.
Monday and Tuesday nights were spent in yet another driveway, this time friends in Southampton. Thanks again for your hospitality and the great turkey dinner Sherry and Don! Then on back to Clinton for a few days house-sitting for our friends there.
On Thursday Cathie attended a welcoming knitting group that meets weekly in the Bayfield library. Especially good timing for her, as one of the ladies brought in treats from her daughter that day:
On Friday afternoon the Mews had a little get-together to welcome us newbies, and allow us to meet some of our new neighbours-to-be. Very nice, and the weather cooperated for the backyard gathering.
The latter part of this week and next we're once again camped in the driveway of our Clinton friends. They left us in charge of their house while they are off on a short vacation. The gardens here are lovely right now:
The above pics are of their dog-friendly back yard. Lucky dogs eh!
It's still cool this week, but quite nice overall. A great spot to boondock. :-))
Oh yes, this week we also discovered a large crack in our laptop screen. Ugh! Likely a legacy from last year, when the computer slid from it's poor storage spot and smacked on to the van floor while we were underway, with no visible damage at the time.
Fix or replace? It's still working for now, so rather than go without a computer we have ordered another laptop, and will likely replace the cracked screen later on.
