This coming summer season, we are doing the same thing. But at a different campground.
We thought that we would have been going back to the same place. But back near the beginning of December when we offered them a commitment, they said they were not in a position to make a decision until mid February. We said that we had to look out for our own best interests, and therefore would be keeping our eyes open for other opportunities in the meantime.
Well another opportunity did in fact came along, and we accepted an offer to manage Cabri Regional Park, about 45 minutes NW of Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
Location of Cabri Regional Park.
So, we are signed up for a five month contract from May 1st until September 30th. Of course all of our RV'ing readers are going to mark us into their summer travel plans, so we're expecting lots of visitors.
We're also going to head back to Ottawa for mid April and spend about a week there before driving the little blue car out to Saskatchewan.
So, that's exciting, isn't it??
Okay, on to something else.
Remember when we were at Malealea Lodge last week and we said that we did some video of the local choir and band. Well, they're pretty short but we still wanted to share them with you. This is just the choir, and I'm sorry it's so short. But it gives you an idea. They were really good...
And this next one is the local band, playing entirely with homemade instruments. Proof that if you want to make music, it doesn't take money! These guys were fantastic and we enjoyed watching them!
That was fun, wasn't it? Kinda makes you wonder why you've never been to visit Lesotho.
Okay, on to yesterday. We didn't really do very much except get caught up on some internet research regarding our onward travels, but we did go visit a local hotel we had been told about.
In the town of Bethulie, right at the main intersection is an old hotel. It is really nondescript from the outside, and if you were driving by you wouldn't even know that it is a hotel. But if you have the owners phone number (and we did!) you can "BOOK" yourself a room. And the keyword here is "book"!
All available wall space is lined with thousands of books.
Ruth, in the reading room.
The bar. More books are available here, should you need one.
And if books aren't enough? You can listen to records. Yes, the old vinyl ones. You can choose from about 80,000 albums.
The record library.
What a quirky place. This is all the owner's private collection of albums and books. Thousands of items. If you're looking for somewhere interesting to stay in the town of Bethulie, South Africa... here's the website...
