We Made It!

Hurrah we are here and all set up. We got away just 5 minutes after our projected departure and was on the road for the 3 1/2 hour trip. It was a brutally hot day, but luckily there was cloud cover for most of the drive. As usual there was construction on the 401 but it moved quite well.

I quickly changed into my bathing suit – it was hot out - we had a long setup – with more panels and a different “yard” configuration it took us a few minutes more to get all arranged. Plus there’s the buckets for garbage, one for dirty water, dishpans, water jugs, water carrying cart, cooler, etc. etc. - we brought a lot more than we normally do. We don’t travel light!

The waves were crashing against the shore, but that didn’t stop us from going for our swim after all was setup. The water was cool but totally refreshing. Dogs weren’t too keen, but we dragged them in anyway – it had been a hot day for them too. We had a snack and an icy beer and then took a short walk to stretch our legs. Heaven :-)

Of course we had a bottle of bubbles to celebrate our arrival. Bubbles on the first night is a tradition, and a good one at that!
