There are many different sights, sounds and smells of life at Monck…
Of course one of the smells that is conducive of camping is a ‘campfire’..not something we have smelt in a while..sure we have had the smell of forest fire smoke but that is about as close as we have gotten..
..then there is the smell of suntan lotion..those campers that come into the gatehouse on a warm day and leave the lingering odour of ‘coconut lotion’..makes me miss the beach..
or the smell of the fresh baked peanut butter cookies that we all received from a US camper who had some ‘transmission trouble’..
there is the sounds of clanging bottles and cans as Doug works on sorting the recycling..
..Tucker, of course is always game for sunset swim?
..that was a question I got today…How much for site #19..the one with power and water?..had to see this for myself?..one ‘faux power post?’
..a visitor on the beach kept Doug company, this morning..a heron sighting..
....and then on Tuesday afternoon Doug was doing his garbage run and a camper came and told him that there was a ‘bear’..only about 20 feet from their campsite!
the ‘bear is back’..not the same one as last month..but a ‘bear’ in the park again isn’t a good thing!
Doug and Steve chased him out of the park…one can only hope he gets the hint…the bear signs are back up yet again!!
..one quick trip into Merritt for a few groceries..it was ‘date night’…we stopped at Boston Pizza for dinner..we started with Spicy Thai Chicken strips..
we needed a ‘fire extinguisher’ after we were done..
on the way back to the park we stopped at the last look out before the park boundary…
a ‘Mother Nature’ photo bomb?..makes ‘sense’ to me?
