Trailer is all packed up and we are ready to go. Lots of planes - all on floats so we must be going to a lake. This should be fun - lots of walks, trees to climb, and people to visit. Dad got a new battery for the trailer so we should all be toasty and warm at night.
Once we were past the point of no return Mum realised that she had left the stuffing for the potluck dinner in the freezer at home. We had to make a detour into Barrhead to get new fixings. The new stuffing did turn out better than the batch at home. She had lots of compliments and lots of good laughs!
|Clear Lake Beach. The water level has really dropped since July.|
The ducks and geese are gathering. Dad says the geese a practising for their flight south. He says the honking sounds like the cadence chant from his militia days: "left, left, left, right, left".
|Where is that squirrel?|
|I think I could climb this one.|
|Table all set up for the wrap-up dinner.|
Deep fried turkey with all the trimmings.
There was a mock wedding ceremony for Cash (a maltese/yorkie cross) and Maddie. They both wore charming outfits. The wedding songs were "Who let the dogs out", "You're nothing but a hound dog" (for Cash) and "They call it puppy love" for Maddie.
R acted as minister and gave a very nice blessing for the meal. One of the company has been in palliative care for the last few weeks and R had special words for her and her family.
According to Mum and Dad supper was excellent. It was a great way to wrap up the flying year.
