Inverhuron, Aug. 22-24 2014

What a wonderful relaxing weekend we enjoyed. Nothing like spending time with family and all of natures beauty to rejuvenate ones body and soul. Most of our time was spent enjoying the sights and sounds at our campsite. We did take a drive into Southampton so that I could order more of my delicious hot chocolate, pick up fresh veggies and to pick up our dinner at the Enchanted Fusion. We spent the remainder of Friday enjoying the crackle and flicker of the campfire. Saturday morning was spent enjoying some of natures creatures.  We had chipmunks, a red squirrel that I hand fed, blue jays that we very friendly, a number of birds and a young red breasted grosbeak that would come and eat seeds with me sitting right beside them. We also had company join us. Drew, Ian, Brittany and precious Emma came for lunch and to also introduce Emma to beach time before the weather cools off. It was warm, humid and overcast so it was a great afternoon to enjoy the beach. Unfortunately Emma was not impressed with Lake Huron's cool water. Ian tried a few times to get her into the water but the reaction was the same both times. It's too cold, Daddy!!! She did enjoy watching the wee waves rolling in and spending time on the blanket. We had lots of fun entertaining her with hats, keys and sunglasses. Emma is now sitting up on her own so that made for some good picture opportunities. Emma was quite content to have her nap at the beach as well. We visited for a bit back at the campsite before they headed off on there trip back to Kitchener. Seems Emma was a good traveler as this was a test run for there trip to Virginia in October. Saturday evening was a repeat performance of enjoying a campfire. Sunday we enjoyed a quiet time at our site with lots of the parks feathered and furry friends before heading up to Southampton and Port Elgin for an afternoon of shopping. We ran into Nancy & John Ouellette at the mall in Port. Duncan use to coach their son Ben softball. They were camping at MacGregor. We then headed back to Inverhuron to hook up and head home. We certainly loved our leisurely week-end away.
