Honey, Strawberries, and Ice-Cream

After a rainy night, the morning dawned cloudy but warm – it must be time to  do another lot of laundry.  The camp where we are currently staying, in the middle of an apple orchard, just happens to have a washing machine.  So I was a very happy camper indeed.

Then I spent time relaxing under the awning while I did a little stitching.

We bought new season’s asparagus and strawberries, and ate them for dinner

Went to Rush Munro’s Ice-cream Garden in the afternoon with my sister and her hubby – a famous Hasting’s establishment.  After dealing with health issues lately, they were pleased to indulge in the simple pleasure of eating an ice-cream in the sunshine.  We had to eat them quickly before they melted!

A day of simple pleasures indeed.  It was good to spend some time with my sister and her family, and indeed this was the reason we are staying here for the last few days.  But tomorrow it will be time to pack up and head for home – the road trip will be over.  Until the next one!

You all look very summery there, enjoy it all, some rain last night and greyish skies this morning.

Wonderful days for you and Robin. Good eats and I think your sister resembles you Jenny. So happy to spend time together.
