Nicolston Dam

We slept in a bit this morning, then enjoyed a delicious bacon and egg breakfast. 

Texted Pete & Janette to see if they were up and about and to see if they wanted to go for a walk with us. 

Took some photos of the campground near our site and then with “J” we went for a walk to see the whole campground.  “P” stayed behind because he wanted to get his Can Am Spider out of the garage in their toy hauler.

We first headed over to where the Nicolston Dam is.  It is a very beautiful spot.

These photos show you the actual Dam.  “J” and Karen at the Dam.

Another “Damn” Dam photo.


They don’t want anyone fooling around with the gate valves so they are chain locked.

Near the Dam there is a small farm with a few animals.  “J” said there used to be a pig, but we didn’t see it.  Just these roosters and chickens.  You can buy the fresh eggs in the small campground store.

Janette introduced Karen to Victor.

There is a very nice outdoor pool.

This is the office / general store.  We went inside and ordered some firewood to be delivered to our site for tonights camp fire.

Beside the store are these 2 wooden carvings.

Walked some more through different areas of the campground before we wound up back at our site.  Time for lunch.

After lunch Pete came over with his Can Am Spider and invited me to go with him for a ride.  His destination was a 20 KM ride to Pete’s Donuts where he likes to buy fresh breads, buns and of course donuts.   Is it a coincidence that he likes a place that is named Pete's Donuts?  So off we went.

“J” and Karen relaxed while we were away judging by these photos I found on the camera this evening while I was writing the blog.

I had to ask Karen what these were photos of... Karen told me this is the view she had while reclined in the zero gravity chair.

For dinner, we diced up some potatoes and onions and wrapped them in foil.  We put these and our steaks on our Weber Q bbq.  Mmmmm… very good.   For dessert we enjoyed some ice cream.

After dinner we joined P&J for another evening of sitting around their colourful campfire while enjoying a few cold ones.
