June was an ideal month - it started with camping and ended with camping and who can ask for more?
We headed out to Abraham Lake for a few days, and decided to hike a few times instead of just laying around. LOL
The whole area is so beautiful, there were not many campers, and it was a great way to extend our anniversary celabrations!
On the ongoing saga of house renovations and repairs, we finished painting the east side fence. AND bought the fence panels for a whole new fence on the west side, and started the painting of those! But first a picture of the completed sidewalk repair from last month. Then combined with the freshly painted fence, things are looking up.
June seemed to go by faster than normal, but all the painting may be the reason for that. I am sure our neighbours are wondering what we are doing, we aren't much for outside work. LOL
Finally we moved on to bigger and better things and made a 10 day reservation at Calling Lake. June and Walleye fishing go hand in hand at Calling, and we were glad the park re-opened for camping.
Our friends Bruce and Keri joined us for the first 5 days. We were all excited to try our hand at fishing. We had the greatest time. The drinks were cold, the fish were biting like we had never seen, and the weather was on it's best behaviour! You couldn't wipe the smile off Bruce's face.
I finally perfected cooking the fish, but when you have 4 to clean and eat per day, it was bound to happen!
On Saturday Jim and Janice pulled in. Last year we joined them camping at Abraham Lake. We had not camped together since our St. Paul days in the 90's, although we have stayed in touch visiting and watching grandsons play hockey. So we made a pact that Jim would take time off every summer and we would meet somewhere.
Oh what a great time we had again! Don't take good friends for granted!!
Through this visit, Tracy and the kids drove up to see us for a day. The kids were excited to get out on the water and see if there were any fish left to catch. There is no way to describe this fishing expedition! Literally the hooks went out and the fish were there. Don and Tracy could barely keep up with the net, baiting, getting the fish off, etc. I am not joking - it was actually exhausitng. Suffice to say this trip saw everyone's fish stories and dreams come true!
