Great Canada Day Weekend !

Other then some much needed rain most of Canada Day, it was a great Canada Day Weekend !

Our friends, Vicki & Doug, arrived Thursday to beat the traffic, and stayed until Monday morning to avoid the Holiday traffic again.

Our hay was cut last week, and was all picked up Friday morning before the rain began.  The farmer who took it off our fields this year meant business and got r' done.  Hoping he will be interested in it again next year as we like that kind of person.

Bandit got into the Canada Day celebrations, and Rob? he was thrilled as he had gotten his bike back from being painted and all spiffed up this past Winter.  Looks good does it not? we got out for a quick ride around the big block after he had brought it home Thursday.

Had a great time with Vicki, as we usually do when they come up.  We hit a couple of garage sales on Saturday.  The Friday night we had headed into Owen Sound for Chinese food, and then Sunday we had a late lunch of Fish & Chips at Hungry Bear at Sauble Falls (excellent fish & chips!).  Read more about Hungry Bear by *clicking* HERE.

Vicki & I had also went up the road to our neighbours, Bruce Beckons.  Should you ever be up North of Wiarton check it out.  Location? just *click* HERE.

The past couple of days I got caught up on a bit of laundry and housework.  Rob was busy doing a bit of work around our property.  I did manage to get out for a walk on the beach at Sauble Beach last night with a couple of friends.  Always nice to have some relaxation along with all the work.

Check out the root on this burdock Rob pulled out !  Holy root !!!!  My blogger friend, Karen, told me you could eat Burdock Root.  Has anyone tried it?  More info on that by *clicking* HERE.

Yes it has been busy the past week and weekend, but all is good.

Heading out tomorrow for another adventure, so stay tuned at a later date for more from, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.


  1. Bandit looks quite distinguished and patriotic!

  2. Totally enjoyed the weekend, as usual! ❤️


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
