This time of year is also apparently when you start to get tired of it all. Probably because you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Speaking with the people who have worked the registration desk and the restaurant the last couple of years, everybody starts to feel the same around this time. You just want the campers to go home. But, you still have to smile and chat when you deliver the firewood, and wave at the kids as you pass by. After all, there's at least five weeks to go yet!
We haven't had a decent rain in almost three weeks now, and there's none in the forecast. Supposed to be a nice week though, with highs around 25C (78F). For working, we really don't want it any warmer than that.
Our lake water level is now at it's lowest point that we've ever seen it. Hard to believe that at the end of June it was right up to the base of the little white shed in the picture above!
But, at least with the lack of rain our grass doesn't grow much! We had a part time guy helping with the grass cutting and weed whacking, but I told him at the beginning of August that we wouldn't have any more work for him. Ruth and I can keep up with things ourselves so there's no need to spend campground money on more labor if we don't have to.

We sure get some interesting sunsets up here.
Tonight is supposed to be the best night to view the Perseid meteor shower. And with clear skies in the forecast, is should be a real show. There's supposed to be one to two "shooting stars" per minute, and we've got pretty much zero light pollution up here so we're going to stay up late tonight and try and get some night pictures of the sky.
