I wish we could show you photos.
As I figured, our replacement camera didn't arrive yesterday. The online shipment tracking says it left New York on Thursday, arrived in Toronto and has left Toronto. Will it get here Monday? I hope so!
A little more detail about our park. I won't tell you everything until we can show you pics at the same time. But part of yesterday's work activity involved doing garbage pickup at the eighty cabins. Yes, eighty.
These "cabins" are owned, but they are located on park property and the owners pay an annual lease fee to the park itself. Some of them really are weekend cabins, but some are full size homes that people live in year round. I've looked up a few that have been for sale. They can range from $75,000 to $400,000!
Some of the "cabins" here at the park.
Our responsibilities here at the campground really don't have very much to do with the cabins or cabin owners. However we are responsible for trash pickup from those cabins, every Friday and every Monday. Of course there isn't very much trash at this time of year, in fact what was in the bins was mostly leftovers from last year. We were done in less than an hour, but I'm sure it will take quite a bit longer (and a lot stinkier!) on a Monday after a hot summer weekend. So the job is not all peaches and cream!
Ruth did quite a bit more raking yesterday, and cleaned up the covered picnic area. She also went through at least 30 cans of old paint that had been stored underneath our cabin. As expected, about half of it was bad. I hate clutter like that...if something is garbage, throw it away!
Meanwhile, I was busy getting equipment ready for use this summer. Last year they bought a brand new riding mower and a brand new heavy duty push mower. I found a stack of user manuals and sorted through them to see what maintenance was required. And not only for these two new mowers, but for all the other gas powered equipment as well. There was still dirty oil in the ride on mower, so obviously nothing had been done.
Changed the oil in the air compressor as well. It also looked like it had never been done.
There are two other ride on mowers. Not sure why they need three ride on mowers, but we'll figure it out as time goes on.
Tried out our new BBQ yesterday evening and it cooked up some delicious sirloin strip steaks. They were on sale the other day for $3.99 a pound!
Blue sky and sunshine again today. Great to be able to work outside. We'll enjoy it while we can because I bet we won't be saying that when it rains!
