Next thing was dumping the trailer at the near-by RV park.

At around 12noon we said Good By to our friend and headed out into traffic. Our goal was the Pike Lake Prov.Park at Saskatoon,SK. It's over 500 clicks away and with cruise control engaged we settled into a leisurely driving mode.

There is no point in rushing down the highway if you have to go that far. We stopped for a McWrap at Lloydminster and an ice cream in another place farther down the highway. Carol, our friend was waiting with supper and since the weather was incredibly warm we ate on her deck overlooking Pike Lake.
For us it was a key experience. After being part of the constant noisy big-city-rush, the peace and quiet with song bird entertainment was so beautiful that it all-of-a-sudden became clear to us how much we had really missed it.
When the clock struck 10pm we were both ready to hit the sack. I fell into a deep sleep but woke up at 5am of being way too hot.
And the day got hot again real quick. Predicted temps are in the high 80s (31C) Carol prepared a gorgeous breakfast and again we were having it on her deck, breathing the peace of this great place.
Tomorrow we will be heading on into North Dakota seeing more friends.
