We've been here less than two months and we have already received our seventh set of visitors!
Doug and Nancy are nearing the end of an epic six month journey around the U.S. and Canada traveling in their VW camper van. They've been reading our blog for quite a while now, and in fact we met them back in May of 2012 in Mexico a couple of winters ago. They're on their way back home to British Columbia, and stopped in here for a couple of nights to say hi.
Ruth and I went into town to do a grocery shop yesterday. It'll probably be the last one we do together for a while as our busy camper season begins tomorrow.
Quite a few storm clouds around, and it actually poured on us for a while in town.
The little blue car, heading back to the park.
We arrived back at the park and Doug and Nancy were already there. Funny enough, we had actually spotted each other while we were in town, but we were each busy doing our own errands and decided to make our own ways out to the park.
We've been reading each other's blogs so we already know what each other has been up to, but there's still lots to talk about. Had dinner together and then went for a walk around the park. Nice evening, but with all the rain we've had the mosquitoes are back out.
The water is still rising.
Ruth spotted our young great horned owl!
Stayed up until 11:00pm with no shortage of things to talk about. You can read about Doug and Nancy's day at their blog at http://runningawaywithdougandnancy.blogspot.ca/2014/06/virden-mb-to-cabri-sk-594-miles369-miles.html
