Camp is starting to seem like a make work project. Always something to do. Few weeks ago we started talking about building a fence to discourage the dogs from barking and give a little privacy. So I had never built a fence before but took some measurements last week while my wife dug holes for posts. This morning I put Evan to work with me. And 3 hours later we had a fence built. No plans. Just winged it. I had calculated 60 fence boards and was bang on. The only leftover wood was in the last picture. I still want to install solar lights on the posts.

As a bit of a reward for his hard work, I took Evan out for a good long ride in the side by side. Since he's 14 and will be learning how to drive in a couple years, I let him have a turn at the wheel. He rode around a pit first then drove the 10 miles back to camp. The side by side has signal lights. High low beam. Horn. Everything a car has. So I taught him how to signal, do mirror checks. Look both ways etc before pulling out

Lmao. It already went in the fire pit. Once the shed is built and the old one tore down, we'll be pretty much done aside from the small stuff. Time to crawl into a beer or three.

Thanks. I serves the purpose. It was windy earlier and the fence provided great shelter. We were able to have a fire for the kids and cook hot dogs and smokies on the fire despite strong winds.

It's ruff being at camp. Wake up when we want. Make a nice gourmet breakfast of scrambled eggs and veggies. Sit outside by the fire playing guitar while the puppies listen. I'll take this over a crowded beach any day. A little cloudy and around 22 Celsius. Couldn't ask for a nicer morning.

The rain finally stopped around 9:30 last night. We had our annual fireworks display at 11. Pretty good show for a campground. The city had to cancel theirs as it was still raining.

Happy birthday Canada!

Our fireworks are tomorrow night.
Thing is, they are at a little park now close to the highway and not in town like they used to be.. at Pontiac Park over where the two rivers meet.
Progress?
I think not.
Dumb decision imo.

What was a busy weekend at camp has turned quiet this afternoon as everyone else returns to work tomorrow. We're here all week however. Today was shed moving day. First our neighbors were moving theirs. While we had a crew together we moved our old metal shed.

Since it's a gorgeous day after the rain yesterday, we loaded up and headed to the docks to go swimming and kayaking.

I really wish you yankees would quit sending us this crap weather. The rain is almost done but it knocked out the power. I was planning on building a rack for the kayaks this afternoon but the power tools are pretty much useless now. Thinking of investing in a generator for out here.

The city is on their own power grid and I can count on two fingers how often it's gone out in 5 years. Out here, we're on the provincial hydro grid under Ontario hydro. Every time someone farts close to the hydro line 500 miles away, the power goes out.

Nice day today at camp. I was feeling better so I got to work building a canoe/kayak rack to fit 6 canoes. It's even designed to fit on the flat deck trailer.

It was a beautiful afternoon so we loaded up the kids and headed to the beach 10 miles down a bush road. It's beautiful and sandy. You can walk out 100 feet and not be over your waist.

No pictures of me as I'm basically the spectator/camera guy. Lol I did get out on the kayak for a bit. That's my beautiful wife and my son in the kayaks.

Nice morning. Not a peep outside other than the sound of the morning birds singing. Nice breakfast of loaded scrambled eggs and coffee. It's one of our favorites. Chopped onion green pepper sweet pepper mushrooms summer sausage and eggs. Spiced with pepper and cajun seasoning. Just before it's finished cooking load it with shredded cheese.

I can't even last a week without ending up at the hospital. Last night while at camp we noticed the incision line from my surgery turning red and oozing puss. Here we go again. I called the surgeon this morning and he got me in right away. So I'm in town on a gorgeous day dealing with medical stuff again rather than relaxing at camp. Oh well. Better deal with a small infection now than a big one later.
