On Thursday we got the media ready for our class (burning videos onto a DVD). We needed to do major grocery shopping. When we look at the prices we don't feel like buying anything, but we know we need to. They sometimes run out of needed items, for example, the store didn't even have celery. We had our Pearl of Great Price class in the evening. We compared the plan of salvation to a 3-act play and introduced the Fall of Adam and Eve to the transition between Act 1 and Act 2 (mortality).
We took a little road trip on Friday. It was a hot day, but the air conditioning in the car felt good. We went to Brighton to deposit our money for September. We need to be about a month ahead because the money doesn't become available immediately. We lost about $50 in the exchange rate. Since we parked at Sobey's, a grocery store, we got a watermelon.

We went on to Port Hope. There wasn't much to see, but the Mosher family (ancestors of Sister Wheeler) used to live there. It may have changed a little since then. On the way back to Campbellford we stopped briefly at the Seymour Conservation Area to see the quarry. It was a pleasant little swimming spot.

Saturday morning started with a long walk along the Trans-Canada Trail. It looks very different in the summer with all the plants growing. There are still a few scenes of farms along the way.

Saturday was the Campbellford Waterfront Festival. We decided to walk down to it and see what was going on. We want to be out where people are so that our presence is known. It was a hot day, but there were a lot of activities that reminded us of small-town celebrations with ice cream eating contests, canoe races, inner tube races in the water, sack races, and three-legged races. We also went to the United Church where they had a craft fair.

We got the official picture from the Senior's barbeque so we decided to include it on this post. There was a couple that had just arrived but they were too tired from their travel to attend.
