We left Lake Placid NY in the rain and it followed us for most of the day, all the way into Canada. The ride through NY was very scenic and some of the foliage is starting to change already. We spent the night in Sturgeon Falls Canada. It’s a real small town with not a whole lot going on. We did have dinner at this little Italian restaurant that was recommended by the hotel staff. They had some great homemade pasta dishes and not so great wine. So we went for a couple of Canadian beers instead.
The next morning we headed off to Michigan to see Norm and Sherri. Nice ride through the Canadian countryside under sunny skies. We made it through customs and arrived back in the good old USA around 12PM. We met up with Norm and Sherri at the designated pickup point. Of course, we drove right on by and saw an individual waving at us from the parking lot. He looked a lot like Norm. After the U turn, we did some shopping and then headed off to the dock and loaded the boat. We left the dock, than we had to go back for Annette sun glasses. We made it to the other side and while I was helping with the boat, I dropped my sun glasses in the water. I know there’s some Sturgeon out there wearing my prescription glasses. They have a beautiful log home with great views of Snows Channel. After settling in, we took a nice leisurely boat ride around the lake. It was fun checking out all the boat houses and homes along the lakeshore. We returned to the house for cocktails and munchies, and then we caught up on all the happenings from over the summer. The weather didn’t look to promising for tomorrow, so we will have to wait and see.
After a great night sleep and coffee in the gazebo we headed down to the lake to do some kayaking. The weather turned out to be outstanding and the lake was smooth as glass. We spent most of the morning on the lake. After a fantastic lunch of bratwursts and a roaring fire in the grill, it was off to the tennis courts. No one was injured in the fire and Norm, being the trooper that he is, hung in there and delivered a great lunch. Tennis was fun and it was great being back in the game after not playing in a few weeks. The team of Norm and Annette took the team of Bob and Sherri to the woodshed, for a good old fashion beating. We demand a rematch. On the ride back from tennis we took a detour out to Lake Huron. What a beautiful view of the lake that goes on and on for miles. We took quick showers, and then it was off by boat to see Ed and Phyllis for cocktails. Just to let you know, we found out where all the Palmira folks are hiding out. The munchies were great and it was nice seeing friends from Bonita. After a few picks and kisses and hugs we took one fast boat ride back to Norm and Sherri’s. After dinner we tried staying awake but finally gave in around 10 and hit the sack.
