Port Dover, as many of you know, is a favourite place of mine and my husband's. Friday the 13th is celebrated there by many bikers and that day loads down this small lakeside town with thousands of extra people. I've heard there were over one hundred thousand attended this past Friday! That certainly helps the area's economy with all the spending they do and it is a fun day for most.
So we went to Dover yesterday with my sister and her husband and since the 13th was over, I could count on my two hands how many motorcyles I saw and I had wanted to get some pictures of them, drats, none to really see!
On our way down there, we stopped at a nearby small town that holds a yearly flea market/garage sale day. Yesterday was the day and many in the town put what they wanted to sell out on their front lawns and sidewalks. My sister and I browsed and she bought a lot of books for her winter reading. Me? I bought only two books but there was also vendors selling new things like t-shirts, sweaters, purses . . . and I bought a soft leather, black winter purse that I fell in love with. It is a reward to me from me, for anticipated lost weight. (second purse I've bought myself in the past few weeks, lol)
On we went to the lake and we had a good meal, lots of laughter and talking, then went to the pier to feed the many ducks and seagulls. And even the little Sparrows were hungry so they got their share of our bread too.
Rolly and I find it very peaceful and soothing to be at the lake, it is the most relaxing place where any troubles or problems flee from your mind, even if just for the short while we are there. We really needed this yesterday and it did us a powerful lot of good!
My brother-in-law feeding the seagulls, they made a beautiful pattern in the sky!
My sister feeding the ducks, they were hungry yet fat . . . filling up for the coming cold weather no doubt!
The beach was deserted, except for walkers
This pic is dark but it is Rolly & I with our favourite waitress in Dover, she is such a cheerful person!
Rough waters but still so beautiful!
Merry-go-round in Dover that is probably the same one I rode on when I was a child!
Such a soothing, peaceful, delightful day and now we're able to tackle today and whatever it brings!
