Most important is the new addition to our family at Hacienda Contreras RV Park in Mexico!
Our regular readers will remember the two donkeys they have at the campground. Don Quixote, and Fiona.
These pics were taken in March. Now, does Fiona look a little bit pregnant to you? Well it turns out that she was! And no, Don Quixote is not the father because Fiona only showed up there this past winter and the gestation period for a donkey is 12 months.
Fiona with her 2 day old foal! It's a "he" and is yet to be named.
Okay, on to something else. Remember that "My Guestmap" program we told you about a couple of days ago?
Us, in the center of Saskatchewan.
All of you, mostly in North America.
That was fun, and we enjoyed reading each and every one of the messages left by 77 different people. Kind of expected a little more participation from outside of North America but thanks to the ones in New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, and the U.K. who did leave us a note. There is a direct link to the map and messages here.
Next. Our header picture today shows the Danube River in Budapest. Anyone who follows what's going on in the world knows that central Europe has been having some terrible flood problems. Of course we can relate to that because we spent six weeks there last summer. Came across one photo of Budapest that shows how high the river is compared to when we were there.

Taken a couple of days ago. We had walked on the path where those trees are!
Okay, what's next? Oh, reader Ghislain contacted us regarding the homemade RV washing machine we had talked about the other day. She says that instead of buying a plunger and cutting holes in it, you can actually buy a plunger type device that is specifically made for this.
Thanks for the tip Ghislain!
Hmm. What else.
The weather hasn't been the greatest since Saturday. We more or less relaxed all weekend because it was raining on and off. The cabin owners had their annual meeting and we were asked to attend in case there were any issues we could help them with.
AGM at the outdoor camp kitchen.
And of course the contest for a trip to Namibia, Africa.
We're still holding on to 2nd place thanks to the help of our facebook fans. But there's only 3 1/2 days to go and we learned from the Australia contest that there's a lot of shenanigans that take place in the days leading up to the finish.
