Holidaying at Inverhuron

We spent three nights last week at Inverhuron Provincial Park on the shores of Lake Huron. It was quite idyllic. They were also the only three days in a row all summer when it did not rain.
We chose this park partly because it is close to Sauble Beach where we were going for Saturday and Sunday nights and because they advertised that they had a dog beach.

As you can see from the above pictures Dan and the dogs enjoyed the dog beach. Unfortunately on the Friday afternoon a Park Warden came up to us and said he was sorry but the dogs had to be on a leash. We had always kept them on the leash in the park but this was the dog beach. Turns out...dog beach means that dogs are allowed to be there ...on a leash...which he admitted makes it hard for them to swim... Anyway we had had them in the water a lot before we were told this rule and we were leaving the next day anyway so ... back on the leashes they went and we confined ourselves to walking the rest of the time.

Between the swimming and the walking we had two exhausted dogs....here we are in the messy RV...they were so tired they barely lifed their heads for a couple of days.

We spent two nights at the race track where inspite of doing very little racing this year...David managed a first in his heat race on Sunday and a 4th in the main event. I don't remember how he did on Saturday night but whatever it was Sunday made up for it.

We are now home and my next order of business is to get ready for the stitching retreat/potluck/bring and brag/enable your friends / eat and laugh day next Saturday, the 16th of August. Any stitchers in the Brighton neighbourhood is more than welcome to stop by and see some amazing stitchers and their beautiful inspiring work. It all starts around noon.
I will try to remember to take pictures of the retreat to share with you after it is over.

When I used to camp with my sons many years ago, we camped at Sauble Falls. Inverhuron was only open as a day camp at that time. I'd love to camp overnight there.
Sure looks like everyone had a great time.
