The days are all melding together it seems…
beautiful weather, hard to fathom that we are living at 3700 feet..cold and clear in the morning…-4 celcius..but warm sunshine during the day..
Po is warming his cold ‘bum’ against the heater this morning..I forgot the camera outside last night, so the lens was a bit ‘foggy’..
Our days are filled with
- ‘garbage runs’ to the dump..
- latrine duties
- pulling weeds..and there are lots of them..the dandelions are still winning!
- ball throwing
- eagle watching..not too sure who’s watching who?
Friday night is upon us….’Headlight Friday’ as Dave calls it..and the campers are rolling in slowly..another weekend is upon us..this is a very large group that comes to the park every year…amazing how they organize all the trucks and trailers..they are like a small city.. with a wall tent and a poker table too!..some families sure know how to organize an annual camping trip!!
Saturday was spent doing more painting and repairing picnic tables....the view from our ‘new office area’..
Let me HELP you, Dad?..
We went to the Day Use area and painted the ‘bird poop covered’ sign..
..it was ‘bumper boats’ out on the lake..
and a plane was doing some practising..
As the park is in prep mode for the long weekend..Sunday is called ‘Tail light Sunday’..today we cleaned all the vacated campsites at Tunkwa..good thing this was the only ‘bad site’..
at least the rest of the campers were a bit more considerate..
all in a ‘day’s work’…at least the sun was shining..and as we continue to spend time in the campground we are learning where all the sites are located..armed with our ‘hand drawn map’ we are hoping that one day soon we won’t need it anymore..
..one task that Doug had to do today was tow a camper’s boat trailer down to the boat launch and help him bring it back to his campsite..
Customer service is a big part of why Tunkwa Lake is filled with ‘happy camper’s….Dave and Sherry have created a great atmosphere for the campers, which is why so many of them are repeat customers..We have some ‘big shoes’ to fill but for now we ‘work, watch, learn and absorb as much information we can…..sure hope we up for the challenge!!
