Postcard from the Pinery, Day 2 (Saturday)

We took several hikes, saw many wildflowers and birds including this woodpecker. Later, we drove into Grand Bend for some groceries, because it appeared that our lunch meat was missing. After we returned, we took another hike and sat on the shore of the river to
watch the canoers go by. Very peaceful.

Wow, tes photos sont fantastiques, Mary!!!!!!!! I'd love to be there. On June 4th, I'll leave Montpellier for Connecticut where I'll spend three months, lucky me :-))

BB swore that he had forgotten to pack the lunch meat that I had walked to the VM for and carefully packed in ziplocks and labeled for him to take--and I told him he must have packed it,a s it was right with the other meat, but we both looked for it and couldn't find it. The next day, after driving to Grand Bend to get replacement meat, we found the meat I had packed. It was fine. He just had some weird brain slippage and the gods hid it on us for some reason. BB says it's because he needed extra lunch meat for the week coming up for his work lunches.

The weather was pretty perfect--and NO bugs--it was cool cold every day but the last, which kept the bugs at bay.

The park has a phenomenal number of campsites, but they are pretty well secluded and the park is HUGE so if you like to hike--we often saw no one at all on our hikes, or only a few people. Some campers like to sit in their trailers and watch TV and drink beer--not sure why they don't just stay home.

We had a great time!

Marie, we'll have to stay in touch in case I get near there or hyou near here. :-)
