If I had a million dollars?

 

Another couple weeks have passed and we can’t believe how fast the days go by..

On May 24, my birthday.. we were up early and headed out to clean the bathrooms..

There are a ‘few’ to clean so with two of us scrubbing  the toilets the task is done rather quickly and efficiently..

A very nice ‘camper’ or maybe it was a visitor to the beach left us a ‘tip?’

Just a couple ‘million dollars’..not a bad birthday gift?

Ron and Karen came for a  Sunday morning visit to see the park and of course have the usual ‘breakfast of French Toast’..it was nice to see them again and give them a tour of our ‘spring/summer’ home..

Sunday night we had company for dinner.. blog readers Doug and Eileen came for a barbecue bringing with them a handmade dish cloth as a token of appreciation.. a lovely gift that will get lots of use..11201182_10152830530110896_2566932721463069316_n

We had a nice meal of burgers and potato salad..such a lovely couple!!!..so glad we got to spend some time getting to know them!

Monday morning they left Monck Park..onwards to Oliver, BC for them..

We hope our paths will cross one day soon..

..it is nice to meet blog readers..and in between our working we made some time to visit..

and we have  had a few visitors this past week…

from Wandering Willie to Jean and Skip  and there was a new  reader, Doug and Mel, who  have a shiny new blog called ‘Just another Rv Blog’

Recycling is another one of our jobs..or rather sorting bottles, cans, wine and beer bottles..

There seems to be some ‘angry recyclers’ out there in the campground?

A very ‘twisted’ water bottle?

10488003_10152830530020896_7672777879609429292_n

..we had some rain and thunder?

11391289_10152830530115896_6925894984112894268_n

wild and wacky weather for a few days..

and then there was more company..Brenda and Ken came and stayed for a few days..

bringing with them..some delicious home made cookies and a bottle of our favourite Disaronna..

The time went by so quickly and before we knew it the visit was over…

..and then it was time for our ‘compound peeps’ to come home!

The Colibaba’s are back!!!

11357249_10152831915165896_7127781042027301898_o

our first ‘happy hour’!!

11390293_10152835454990896_1912600708503220416_n

and their first official day of ‘training’..

11391357_10152835454995896_8447127782037137799_n

..our life here at Monck may not be ‘glitz and glamour’ but some times we just want to ‘pinch ourselves’ and say ‘we can’t believe we actually ‘work’ here..

11110223_10152835455000896_259752935225991999_n

with views like this each and every day it doesn’t really seem like ‘work’!

11391746_10153251039601480_28847363023641475_n

so we may not have a ‘million dollars’ but the views at the park are sure worth a ‘million dollars’!

If you are ever in our ‘neighbourhood’ be sure to stop by and say ‘hi’ and check out the views!

  4. First of all - happy belated birthday!

    Actually, I'm going to volunteer for the first time for the month of July at Tumalo State Park in Bend, Oregon. I'm going to be cleaning Yurts (kind of like a camping cabin) and have Friday and Saturday off. I'm only doing it for the month of July to see if I like the experience.

  6. Looks like you're keeping busy. Nice that the campground recycles ... so far we are 0 for three on the recycling on this trip. We're taking it along with us, but if the next one isn't a recycler either, then we will have to dump what we've collected.
