We woke to rain Friday morning and it basically rained off and on all day...quite a change from the weather we had been having, but it was actually a nice change.
Steve and I got out for a walk. We went down to the boat launch...the lake is very blustery today...and then walked out to the highway. These are the 2 signs at the entrance to park..
Dave and Kerry came over and we played Rummikub until Kerry’s family arrived from Winnipeg. Her mom (Lillian), dad (Don) and 2 nephews (Davin and Justice) have come up for a few days of fishing.
We joined them for happy hour and as the rain started, we headed home for a quiet evening of TV.
It rained most of the night and we woke Saturday to another cool damp day. We did managed to get out for another walk down to the boat launch...lots of white caps on the water.
Back home, Steve work on editing pictures and watched TV while I baked some mini-muffins and crocheted.
By late afternoon, the sun started to peek through and it warmed up outside. We went over to visit Dave, Kerry and their company. We had been invited over for dinner again, so Lillian and I helped Kerry with preparations inside...then it was time to grill steak. Another delicious meal!
After dinner, Dave checked the lake and decided that the wind had died down enough to take the boat out fishing...so Dave, Steve, Davin and Justice headed out.
I'd say they had a lot of fun! Davin's catch...
(I only hear smoke and CO2 alarms, fridge alarms in the wee hours are your department...Steve :)
We had a couple of days off from fishing so Kerry's family could get out.
We actually had some blue sky today! Steve and I got out for a good long walk and then decided it was too buggy to sit outside. So we sat inside watching some TV and I crocheted...a pretty relaxing afternoon.
Late afternoon, we walked next door and joined them for happy hour. We had a nice visit, went home for dinner and then after a walk around the campground, stopped for another quick visit before heading home to bed.
Monday it was hot and humid...and the horseflies and mosquitoes were terrible! We spent most of the day inside. I was crocheting again...trying to get a couple of potholders finished for Kerry.
Dave, Steve, Davin and Justice went out fishing in the afternoon...and caught nothing! Too rough and windy.
This is the Grass River Lodge next door...
Kerry's family were leaving this morning, so at 9:00 we wandered over to say goodbye. It was really great meeting Don and Lillian, along with Davin and Justice. They had a long 8 hour drive ahead of them back down to Winnipeg.
A flock of :Pelicans fly by while another waits nearby for a handout...
Another one of Kerry's talents is cutting hair....nails, hair, baiting my hook, netting my fish...who could ask for a better personal assistant! LOL
Steve went first...
Wednesday...and our last day here. Dave took Steve and I out fishing...our plan is to catch enough Walleye for a final fish fry.
It was very windy and rough on the lake. We tried different spots that were more protected from the wind but weren't having much luck in catching Walleye small enough to keep.
We caught a number of Walleye...but only 3 were small enough to keep. Not enough for dinner.
This is the coating Dave dips his fillets into before frying. One of his American friends brings it up for him. Apparently it does a great job. As usual, Kerry seasoned and pan-fried ours.
The end to another great day...another week...and now our stay here. We have thoroughly enjoyed the last couple of weeks. Dave and Kerry are great hosts and wonderful fishing guides...thanks so much...we had an awesome time!
