      We at 50 Point Conservation area in Ontario this morning had a great sleep, and as usual up early , got a few walkabouts done and were ready to hit the road just after 9 am no rush today.
spotted this black lump in a tree,
zoomed in, it's a black squirrel
       Only had 44 miles to go to the campground. we got to the border crossing at 10 am as I predicted. Very easy crossing like we usually have. 5 min wait. No issues at all. were you going ? Lewiston NY for the weekend then Arizona. Do you have any meat? Yes we have a freezer full of pork and fish, no problem. Any produce? 5 lbs of apples, no problem. Any citrus, nope. Alcohol? One bottle and a few beer, no problem.  Have a good winter and away we went.
        First stop not far was Smoking Joe's to fill the gas and our car. $2;50 US a gallon . That is .83 cents a litre in Canadian funds, compared to the $1.20 we were paying at home , so saved a big chunk of cash here. We Took 50 gallons of fuel like we saved $69.00 CDN just on this fill up alone.
always stop at Smoking' Joes when we cross here
good ideal on propane tanks too
          We arrived at Lazy Lakes resort  before 11 am , got all set up  and visited our good friends Bill and Barb for bit then enjoyed a nice light lunch. This is another membership campground (part of our Rock Glen Resort Membership) that we enjoy, so free camping with  water, sewer and 30 amp service. Works for us.
all set up here nice campsite
       I ran a few errands to pick up supplies and get some food deals, Then home to Visit with Bill and Barb again for Happy Hour.
always nice to see these guys again,
last time was Pilot Knob Resort in California in February 
      Lots of campsites getting set up for this weekend a big Halloween celebration here that they do every year.
one of many, I will take more pictures over the weekend
        Back home for supper, I preheated our Weber Q 100 and whipped up a salad. for a tasty supper.
not long on our Weber and done to perfection
so very tasty
sure hit the spot
a nice easy travel day only 44 miles
        Perfect weather sunny and warm up to 75F but was windy, still the sunshine was wonderful and supposed to be like this all weekend. We will hang out here for a few days having fun with our friends and enjoy more of this great weather.
        Thanks for stopping on by and hope y'all had a great fall day as well.

    What a wonderful day we are going to have, and we will make the best of it for sure. Got some nice walkabouts done early after out coffees of course,. About 7:30 am enjoying the sunrises here that are amazing, for this area.
so pretty and inspirational 
           Now with this perfect warm sunny day and not much wind I decided to clean our vent covers and Fantastic fan. I like to do this once a year and they were due. Just waiting for the prefect day and this was it.
they get so dirty
even the fantastic fan, but I have a nice and easy way to clean it.
         The vent covers all off and will give them a good cleaning. They sure get filthy in a year.
I remove the fan blade and wash in the sink easy job
vent covers like new again
Fan blade all sparkling clean too
re installed and works perfect again
        Now time for lunch, we have a few fresh eggs t use up, so a mushroom omelette with onions and ham did the trick. A tasty lunch we had.
a tasty omelette
         After lunch a returned our beer and wine bottles for recycling and made some cash. Back home to put our clean vent covers back on and wash down our solar panels. Hey we good for a while now and soon ready to hit the road.
looking good and ready to go
       After this I stored our Weber Q, checked our tire pressures, dumped our sewage. Then Bonnie and Stella stopped by for a chat. Another blog follower here at 50 point. Really so nice to spend the time and really get to know these people, Super people as, most RV 'rs are.
Doggie fix for Suzie with Stella
such a good dog

              Then we just relaxing in the sun enjoying the wonderful warm sunny after noon. A light breeze and cloudless skies. Reading our books outside on a warm day is what we love. !
lots of nice showers here too
     Soon time for supper, Tonight I am going to make a stir fry, use up our Chicken breast and some fresh veggies before we cross the border in the morning
Chicken and mushroom fried rice

       Just another wonderful fall day here. Mild overnight and a wonderful sunny day.Great for my early morning walkabouts. Very little wind and lots of sunshine, really gotta love it!
seed pods exploding 
         I headed on down a few trails here and actually got about 3 miles done before 9 am, This is wonderful and I feel so energetic. Down by the harbour to check out the boats and fancy yachts.
lots of nice trails here
small beaver dam
larger beaver dam
     These beavers are keeping busy that's for sure.
still lotsa boats here yet
such a peaceful walk and so refreshing
     All day long lots of Geese flying overhead honking like crazy no doubt heading south, 
one of many flocks
they all stop here in this pond for a rest
         Now back home relax for a while and putter around. Enjoyed a nice light linch (more Turkey Noodle soup). Picked a few groceries and relaxed in the afternoon sun enjoying our e-readers. What a wonderful afternoon we had. It actually got to 75 F (23c) this afternoon but with the breeze was quite comfortable in the sun.
gotta love this lifestyle
all the sites here are huge,
these are across from us
       I went for another walkabout and my shadow followed me everywhere!
just me and my shadow,
taller than me!
        While cooking supper Bonnie and Stella stopped by to say hi. Always nice to welcome people here when we are outside.
Stella is a beauty
     As I  began cooking on our Weber Q the sun was setting.
      For supper tonight a couple of Shrimp burgers to go with our tasty healthy salad.
not long on the Weber q and done to perfection
salad, shrimp burgers with homemade shrimp sauce
sure hit the spot
       Then spotted a nice sunset right outside our dining room table.
a nice ending to a perfect fall day!
        We enjoyed this whole day no problem . One more day here to wrap up a few things and we  cross the border Thursday morning and begin or journey to the south west.
       Glad that y'all dropped in for visit and as always hope you had a wonderful fall day.

Where are we today ?

        It was a very cool night and the wind still beating on our coach. It really cooled down only 45f (7C) at 6 am.; But sure could be worse . No complaints here at all. I just bundled up and got a few nice early walkabouts, While our Turkey soup broth was simmering away. The broth made last week and froze. Now a perfect day to make some homemade soup.
       Just added a few more spices and noodles and we had a very hearty soup for lunch, even a few more lunches as well.
homemade stoup, banna, orange and apple a perfect lunch!
on a cooler day
        After lunch I cruised around the Conservation area and down by the lake. First I checked out the beach. Nobody there!  Not surprised , when it is cold and windy. This place is very busy on the hot summer days no doubt.
nice pavilion  
wonderful beach
lake Ontario almost like an oceanOhio way over there 
the CN tower in Toronto in the distance  
       Then down by the Harbour at 50 Point Marina, here off season and pretty quiet right now.
Rescue boat here if needed
        There is a lot of boats in the water, But they have a few here taking many out with cranes and lifts putting therm in storage as I was lucky to see one taken out,
they are cleaning the hull of the one
         Below is a trailer heading in getting ready for another one.
this sail boat mast removed ready to go 
these guys know their stuff
heading out into storage for the winter
the landing Restaurant closed for the season
this guy is getting his boat ready  for storage
       Now after this fun time I headed home to repack our winter supply of coffee. We have 4 1/2 boxes enough bags for 200 pots of the coffee we love. I can repack this.
to make more room I can repack into 3 boxes, below
now we have enough coffee until next spring = perfect!
          Now with lotsa sunshine we found a spot out of the wind to sit outside and enjoy our e-readers for a couple of hours.
       And of course when we sit outside we meet our neighbours, also met some more blog  followers. When we sit outside reading always meet people, part of the lifestyle!
sunny warm and no wind here
      I finished another book and began another page turner, James Patterson , always a good read.
what a perfect day
    While here Bonnie and her dog Stella stopped by for a chat, nice to see them again and a doggie fix for Suzie.
Stella is a sweetie
     Also another neighbour stopped by with Tucker, another Tucker fix for Suzie as well. Even another neighbour Steve that follows our blog, wow we had company for a short while!Always nice to meet new people though.
       Soon time to whip up supper, I made our tasty salad while our Weber Q preheated and grilled some chicken drumsticks for supper.
Weber Q ready to grill

       Not a bad day at all just taking it easy and relaxing on a sunny, but cooler fall day.
       Thanks for stopping on by.
