Saturday we went for our morning hike and ended up at Home Depot so Lori could pick up a few more Christmas decorations. The neighbourhood is getting quite festive and I think Lori feels that we must at least try to keep up. One of these evenings I will set out with my camera and tripod to get some shots of the christmas lights decorating the Palm trees and neighbouring RVs.
The rest of the day we stayed close to home, resting up so we could "cut a rug" at Fred's later that night. When we were at Faye and Garry's for the Grey Cup game they invited us to join the two of them, Brian and Nina for their monthly trip out to Fred's. When we got there, Fred's was as described. An old ramshackle barn, surrounded by old cars, wagons and outbuildings which was truly in the middle of nowhere. Inside there was a large bar at one end with a mesquite fired grill in the middle of the room.
We got there about 5:00 and the place was about 1/2 full. Within an hour it was packed. I ordered the Steak which was very good and Lori had a Chefs Salad with Grilled Chicken. Both meals were very good and when topped with a couple of beer and a rum & coke the bill came to $27.00 The band started at 6:00 and played a mix of Country and old style Rock n' Roll. We all had a good time and stayed for 3 sets. The dance floor was full most of the night and heavily populated with other snowbirds, many of whom knew each other and a lot of fellow Canuks. We stopped at Brian & Nina's for coffee on the way home and then Faye & Garry drove us back to our home on wheels.
We had a great evening and even after all of our walking we knew we would feel some new muscles in the morning.
