My husband works for a business that runs 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Currently he works from 7 a.m.- 3 p.m. and his days off are Sunday and Monday.
Sunday mornings start with church and I stay afterwards to teach Sunday School. After a quick lunch, he usually takes a nap while I catch up on laundry and run to the grocery store. We have supper and watch whatever series PBS is featuring (have you seen Indian Summer? - I am loving it!).
Mondays we care for at least two of our young grandchildren during the day and I have a church meeting on Monday evenings. So basically, we do not often share a day off.
Monday, September 28 was a day off!
We decided to head north about 15 minutes to a small town on the shores of Lake Erie. This is a very popular place during the summer with home and cottage rentals, several condos, at least 2 beaches and several restaurants.
This hot spot located right on the boat basin is usually crowded with boaters, boat watchers, vacationers, day visitors and night party-ers. But not on a sunny afternoon in late September! We had the patio to ourselves!
As we enjoyed the weekday boaters coming into the boat basin from Lake Erie, we enjoyed a nice lunch. Prices are a little better in late September, too. Monday's special was a burger, fries and a beer only $6.00!
After lunch, we took a walk up to the opening to the lake. We squinted, but couldn't quite see Canada! It was a wonderful sunny and warm day, not too hot, not too chilly. I hope everyone has as peaceful and enjoyable day as we did.
