Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

August Long Weekend 2010 = Relax!

What  a great weekend!  What started out as disappointing (our Thursday Meatloaf concert was cancelled) and the Dr. telling me to get my fibromyalgia in control, I wasn’t in a great mood.  Lindsay and Jeremy were coming home for the weekend and although I REALLY wanted to be home and see them, I also REALLY wanted to just get out of town and spend some time with Don.  So with the concert cancelled and the Dr giving me Friday off, we decided the heck with it.  We both knew I would feel better after spending a few days of R&R in the fifth wheel.
We had made arrangements with Don’s old high school friend Ivan to meet him at Abraham Lake on Hwy 11, so we let him know we would be a day earlier and left town.
It was a great choice!  When we approached where we thought Ivan was parking, we spotted him on the highway just returning from a hike, so no worries about finding him.  We selected a spot overlooking an amazing blue lake.  After agreeing how to park the rigs it was time to unwind and visit.  We had last saw Ivan on our April trip to Laughlin.
We did not do anything spellbinding over the weekend.  On Friday we did not even start a vehicle.  Both Saturday and Sunday we went for short drives.  Saturday we toured around the Big Horn Dam (photos below) and on Sunday we went to Crescent Falls (photos below).  FYI – Crescent Falls has a beautiful non serviced campground BUT it is $27 per night!  That is high.  On Saturday we also had the pleasure of meeting Ivan’s friends who dropped by for a visit, and brought lunch!
The guys got a lot of conversation in, I did some good reading and most of all we just relaxed.  I feel way better this evening and almost want to go to work tomorrow!
There are a few pics posted, I think they will be self explanatory.
We have weddings in Saskatchewan the next 2 weekends.  First in Delisle then in North Battleford.  Looking forward to seeing both of our families – I will try to remember to write about them!
