It was a brisk breeze at the Lake Huron shores today at Port Elgin. A beautiful fall day though. We were heading to Southampton for a visit with our friends Don and Sherry there, and on the way we stopped at the Port Elgin beach to watch the waves for a bit.

|Looking the other way. Lots of waves today.|
Along the shore road from Port Elgin to Southampton the waves were larger and deeper, less protection out here.

No dips in Don and Sherry's pool today! (a little inside joke - see older post). A fine day for appetizers outside though, and a great roast pork meal inside later on.
For those interested in our plans for the upcoming months: We expect to be meeting with some Mews people Monday, when we hope to get a better feeling for the accuracy of the new target (Dec 11 instead of Oct 15).
Although tentative, our current plan is to leave Oct 8 to head southwest towards New Mexico. Apparently Oct is usually good weather there, and we've never been in the northern parts, like Santa Fe and Taos. Northern New Mexico gets too cold for us in the real winter, it's quite a bit higher elevation there than in the southern parts of the state. Ideally we'd like to head out a bit earlier, but can't do that this time. Yes, if our plans were Jello they'd be firmer than they are right now.
