Port Burwell, Aug. 9-11 2013

Port Burwell is always an enjoyable week-end. It is a shorter drive through the countryside and there is a wonderful beach to spend time at. Unfortunately it was a windy and cooler week-end so we were not in the water but spent much time at the beach. There were many shorebirds who congregated at one part of the beach so I was able to get photo's of some of them. One was the Bonaparte Gull that I have not seen before. There was also a large group of Caspian Tern's. We enjoyed long walks on the beach and enjoyable evenings by the campfire. I spotted a wagon parked by the beach and wanted to get a picture of it when the man returned from fishing. I was able to get some photo's of the Hutterite man with his horse before he hitched it up for the ride home. We had a restful week-end and we are really enjoying the extra space and added features of Georgie.

Our slide is longer and gives us more room

We also have a slide out in the bedroom

We have a glass shower now

There is more room in the bathroom

The bed slides out and we have more storage

This wall is wardrobes and drawers with the tv in the center
