Here is what it used to look like just a week or so ago.
We had our first Strata Meeting at Mike and Deb's next door. Almost everyone attended, other than a couple that were in Mexico and the empty lot #2 people. Very low key meeting and it was nice to meet all of the neighbours formally. Ray says lots of baking to enjoy too!
|Not the best picture but I was being sneaky ... I don't think they even knew I took a picture. lol|
Tonight we have been invited to Pat and Darryl's (next door neighbours) for dinner. They had invited Donna and Ron for dinner as well. All of us ate and drank well. lol Darryl did the cooking as Pat's hand is still healing from an injury in mid-September. Ray and I did not get home until 11:15 pm. Wow, the latest we have been up in awhile.

It poured hard overnight but had lightened up by 7:30 am when it started to get light. Ray went over to the the park with Freya and noticed that they were setting up for this bike race. What a wet mucky day for them. lol
Ray went back later in the afternoon in between showers to take some pictures. The riders sure got muddy and unfortunately they have torn up the park where Ray usually walks Freya.
|The guy behinds OH SH>>>T moment! ... a new type of "tree-hugger"!|
|And another one bites the dust ... er mud!|
|Yup the beach is a mess.|
There were a few people in costume and a few things for kids.
Here is one of the few riders that dressed up a little.
I saw a bald eagle this afternoon in a tree across the lake eating what I think was a fish, so the salmon must be making their way up the river to the lake. There's a few boats trolling in front of us the last week.
Other than checking out the bike race, we had a pretty quiet Sunday with me catching up on some chores, i.e. ironing etc. Ray used the shop vac and vacuumed up the construction sawdust downstairs while I vacuumed a couple of carpets so we could roll them up out of the way before they start making more mess tomorrow. Unfortunately, while cleaning up I noticed that the plumbers put the kitchen plumbing in the wrong place for the cabinet to be installed ... they were following my old plan which had the masking tape on the floor instead of the new drawings from Coulson Design that Roger, our site supervisor should have shown them????? Geezzz.
