Port Elgin Sunset

So Payton and I have spent the entire summer at the trailer in Port Elgin with the exception of two weeks. I am ashamed to say that during that time, we never once went to see one of these famous Lake Huron sunsets. Well last night we decided to head to the peer and watch the sun go down. Of course we had to treat ourselves to another ice cream to have while we enjoyed the scenery.

Everyone was right, it sure is a sight to see.

We will have to do that again, with Jeff, when he is here so we can get some family pictures with the sunset in the background. I am gonna miss this place come September.

Long live Summer!!!!

Sauble Beach

Yesterday was kind of an overcast and cool day so Payton and I decided to venture into Sauble Beach and see what we could find to do. Our first stop was to find the best beach fries we could find. Boy were they good. Next stop was mini putt.

After a very intense game of putt putt, we relaxed with an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. I can't even tell you the last time I had a DQ ice cream. It was very tasty.

After our ice cream we headed up to the Sauble Beach Amusement Park. It was kinda cheesy but for $20 it killed an hour or so and we had a good time. Payton started out on the smaller rides and worked her way up to the go-karts with me.

By far the go-karts were the most fun. I drove and Payton sat beside me. I kept looking over at her and she was smiling ear to ear. She said at bedtime that she had a great day. I'm glad. Isn't that what summer is all about?

Check back again soon!

This past long weekend, we went out boating with two families that we know from Kitchener. Brad and Kim and their son Chet have a trailer in the same campground we are in. Ian and Christine and thier kids Zoey and Coleton have a cottage not 15 minutes away. Jeff had the jetski and Brad and Ian each had their boats. The day consisted of swimming, tubing, waterskiing and jetskiing. I think fun was had by all. The thing that surprised me the most was that Payton went tubing alone and really enjoyed herself. She really wanted to go but was very aprehensive about going alone. Finally she stood up to her fears and settled into the tube and was ready for her ride.

Tell me she's not having a good time!!!

I think clearly that this is turning out to be the summer of a lifetime. Not only for Payton but for me too.
