Sauble Beach, Ontario - Knight's Inn
We arrived here Saturday, July 30th @ 1:30pm under a hot, humid sun. Our new car endured the trip north on highway 10 for the first time, loaded down with a week's worth luggage.
We spent Saturday afternoon by the pool and had dinner at the Inn.
Sunday morning dawned sunny and hot (humid) with a nice breeze. After an excellent breakfast at the Inn we swam in the unheated pool (which was nice once you got use to it) and then made plans for our afternoon. The town was full of teenagers enjoying the long weekend.
Sunday afternoon Shawn bought a Nirvana t-shirt (Lauren bought a Beavis&Butthead t-shirt Saturday night).
Shawn and mum walked downtown while Lauren and Dad drove to the beach (which was very crowded) to meet mum and Shawn in the early afternoon. Our first visit to the beach was pleasant, with the kids swimming in the lake and mum + dad enjoying the sun by the car.
Many people complimented our new car and after awhile, dad and shawn played catch which abruptly ended when dad bounced the hardball off a silver Chevrolet's hood.
After dinner, which was take-out from Pizza Delight, we went for a drive on the beach in Sauble North/South Beach,bwhere the newly-tinted windows were opened for the first time.
The weather was clear and a nice sunset was starting.
Dad needed some Rolaids so we stopped at the trading Post store on the beach. The kids got a waffle yogurt and slushy and then dad backed the car into a garbage can!
This ruined the rest of the day for dad because the back corner of the car was scratched.
When we got back to the room, Lauren kicked the Knight's Inn ball on the roof and mum got dunk and vomited after mixing wine and Bailey's.
Monday dawned sunny with partial clouds and finally clouded over with a small shower in the evening. Breakfast at the Inn, swimming, no beach, walked the strip, dinner from pizza delight, no drinking for Tracey or dad. Watched movies on TMN, Dad and Shawn practised pitching, watched TV @ Night.
