Fish Fry Dinner/Birthday Party and a Friend Visits Us

Yesterday I received an email from a long time friend of ours Dave D. Saying he would like to drop by for a short visit.

Our Friend Dave D. stopped by for a visit.

I gave Dave the Grand Tour of the RV Park. It being a small RV Park didn’t take much more than 15 minutes to see the entire park. SmileWe sat outside in the sun, as there was a cool breeze blowing (62F.) and the sun really felt great. After 3 hours or so, we had pretty much caught up on all the news and Dave left with a standing invitation to us to come visit him before we return to Michigan, which we plan on doing. What a great visit we had as Dave always has a smile on his face.

Earlier in the week our Canadian neighbor, Dave, invited us over for a Fish Fry dinner which was scheduled for around 4pm. We didn’t know until later on Wednesday that his wife Donna was celebrating his Birthday at the dinner. We were told there would be NO gifts, just bring a small dish to pass as there were going to be around 16 in attendance. A great opportunity to be introduced to their friends.

Dave is quite the fisherman, and had a freezer full of fresh White Fish that he had caught while in Florida this winter. Not only is he a great fisherman, but a #1 cook as he prepared the fish fry for at least 16 of us.

Wilma is getting some of the White Fish that Dave caught and deep fried for us.

I just have to get a photo of his Kayak with his fish finder mount. He does all his fishing from the Kayak or from shore.

Following the dinner, his wife Donna, brought out the birthday cake.

We all sang Happy Birthday to Dave and while he tried several times to blow out the candles, he finally succeeded. (Those candles that re-light when blown out)

Our Birthday Guy, Dave

Dave and Donna are from Chatham, Ontario, Canada, and there were 3 other couples from Canada and 3 couples from Michigan. Nice mix of people and a great time was had by all.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
