We have around 122 usable campsites sites here at the park, and 80 of them are taken up with seasonal campers. It's those 80 sites that we have to have ready.
Next weekend is the May long weekend here in Canada. Last year, the park we worked at was very busy on that weekend, but apparently it's not a big deal here, and in fact we don't have a single reservation. There will be some seasonals here, but with the water level too low for doing any boating the park doesn't start to get busy until the kids are out of school next month.
And so cleanup continues. It's looking good though. And we're seeing some buds on the trees, so I bet by next week at this time things will be looking a little more green!
We have moved a lot of leaves!
This area is ready! Just have to move some picnic tables to the sites.
No idea why, but the guy last year moved about 80% of our picnic tables into our camp kitchen. Total waste of time and effort. After all, our picnic tables are made out of the same wood that you make a deck out of, and that material stays outdoors, covered in snow all winter. So why can't a picnic table stay outdoors all winter? I don't get it. What a huge make work project for nothing. It's probably going to take us a day to put them all back in place.
After supper, we went for a walk. I wanted to go across to the hills opposite the marina area. There's a small stream that you have to cross, so we had to walk a while down the stream to find a place narrow enough to get over there. Unfortunately, the photo ops would be better with the sun in the morning sky. We'll do that another day.
Did you know that there are cactus in Saskatchewan??
Looking down on our marina. The water is rising already, and by mid June those docks should be floating.
Ruth, relaxing after a day of cleaning up leaves!
That's the hill we climbed to get the view of the marina.
I put this stick in the water at the shoreline two days ago. The water is rising!
Lots of trees here.
Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!
But...shouldn't Mother's Day be celebrated the day after Labor Day...? Hmmm...
