It's looking like a great week

And it's going to be busy here at the park. Next weekend is August long weekend here in Canada and the campground is sold out. Almost. We still have a couple of tenting sites open, but the tenters tend to wait until the last minute to see what the weather's going to be like.

And so far, the weather is looking like it's going to be great!

Would you visit Kazakhstan?

Do you even know where it is??

We receive quite a few emails from our readers, but I was surprised to open an email from a reader who lives in Kazakhstan and invited us to visit. I had actually forgotten about this until I saw a news article the other day regarding tourist visas to Kazakhstan, which have been historically very difficult to obtain.

Gotta give credit where it's due

Cell phone companies take a lot of flack, and usually with good reason. They simply don't seem to have very good customer service. We've also experienced poor service with them, and several times over the years I've been frustrated by their stupidity, for lack of a better word.

But yesterday I actually had a good customer service experience!

Mexico is a Go, Go

One of the best countries in the world to take your kids to, Mexico holidays offer brilliant beaches, stunning scenery and a warm welcome to both you and the little ones.

Mazatlán beach fun

On the central Pacific coast, Mazatlán is a mid-sized port city with a lovely seaside promenade and stretches of beaches. Visit the brilliant aquarium and choose from one of the many kid-friendly resorts such as Playa Las Gaviotas, Playa Norte or Playa Camarón Sábado.

We love going to church!

Just not on Sunday mornings.

Anybody who knows us, knows that we are not religious people in any way. However, we do like going to church, and we have probably been to more churches than most people who are religious!

Couchsurfers coming for a visit!

We're excited that we've got couchsurfers coming this weekend! A younger married couple and their dog visiting Canada from the Netherlands.

Finally, we get to give back to the system. We had hosted a couple of times when we owned our home back in 2007, but since we sold we have only hosted once, when we hosted our friend June from South Korea.

Solar Panel Price Drop!

I can't believe how much solar panels have dropped in price since we originally equipped our motorhome with them almost six years ago. It's to the point where I can't really understand why anybody wouldn't have them.

I mean, even if you always park in RV parks, wouldn't you want the option of being self sufficient if you want to be?

Best rainbow ever!

They were calling for a thunderstorm yesterday afternoon, and boy did we ever get one! It poured buckets for about a half an hour and then it slowly tapered off for another half hour.

And then the clouds abruptly moved on and the sun came out!

Spain, and the Canary Islands

We haven't been to any of the popular countries in Europe. Germany? Nope. France? Nope. Spain? Nope. And for a couple of people who love to travel, that's very odd, isn't it? And now that our Spanish language skills have become somewhat usable, one of the countries we'd most love to visit is Spain!

Actually, I forgot. We went to Spain for dinner once!

More than half way through

I meant to mention it last week, but we are now more than half way through our time here at the park. And, more than half way through busy season. The time has gone quickly!

As we get into the second half of our time here, we find ourselves doing more planning for the coming off season.
