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.

Park of the Year!

The Saskatchewan Regional Parks system has 75 different parks.  Each year, the Regional Parks board choose a "Park of the Year" and a "Park on the Move".

The park we managed last year was chosen as "Park of the Year"!

A two km hike at two o'clock in the morning!

We knew there would be nights like this. In fact, we've been lucky so far in that this is the first one at this campground.

The park is sold out this weekend, and will be for the next two weekends. Everybody comes out to enjoy the weekend, and some of them stay up too late. Often, it's the young people, but not always!

How often do you play?

We play almost every day! Whether we're traveling or staying here at the park, we always have some sort of game available to keep us occupied.

And when do we play?

During dinner!

Gluten Free Beer

The words "Free Beer" go really well together, but the words "Gluten Free Beer" don't do so well!

In fact, we haven't found any decent gluten free beer yet. That is, until we found out that a lot of beer is gluten free anyhow!

New York, New York

Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York

And so go the lyrics of the famous Frank Sinatra song. If there is one city in the United States that you absolutely must visit, it is New York City. We spent a few days there in March, and a few days there last November.

A few days isn't enough.

If you hate mosquitoes, you need to read this post!

This seems to be an exceptionally bad summer for mosquitoes in many parts of North America. So I'm going to explain how we deal with these little pests.

In one word, Thermacell

Planning for South Korea

Ruth has been spending a lot of her free time on the internet, planning for South Korea. For the most part, I do the searching for the best travel prices (planes, trains, buses, etc.) and she does the searching for the best things to do once we get there!

So far, it looks like we're not going to have much problem using up our 28 days there!

Great weekend!

What a good weekend we had! The campground was packed, the weather was perfect, and the people were having fun.

We put in lots of hours though!

My Grandfather's Watch

I didn't get to know either one of my grandfathers. On my dad's side, my grandfather lived in British Columbia and I only met him once, when my father took me for a visit in 1966. I was four years old, and he passed away suddenly and unexpectedly of a heart attack later that year. He was only 61.

On my mom's side, my grandfather lived in Toronto, and while we visited once or twice a year, he also passed away very young.
