At long ‘last’, it’s time for a change?

 

September 8, 2015

Our last bit of time  at Monck Park just seemed to fly on by..

It was a busy time at the park.. families trying to squeeze in one last weekend of fun before the kids head on back to school..

Our friends Mark and Linda came to the park for a camping visit and invited us for dinner one night..they made a delicious Korean Beef Stir Fry..that was so good!!IMG_0464

We worked through the last weekend with mixed feelings..sad to be leaving, yet happy to leaving also…

one last shift in the gatehouse..

and before we knew it ..all the scheduled shifts were done so we knew it was time..

We submitted our hours via email..handed our keys in..and that was it..

Our home for five months is no longer..it is time for a change..

Time to pack everything up

..the rain was still coming down and before long we are all inside our respective ‘homes’ ..

IMG_0508

..we have a new view out the back window..

IMG_0507

..before long the rain let up and we managed to get outside for a walk..

..our first day of ‘no work’ ended with a campfire, hot dogs and a bit of television..

maybe the sun will shine tomorrow?
