We spent most of the day yesterday on one bathroom!
We've got five small bathroom buildings here. Most of them are separated men's and women's, with one toilet stall and one shower stall on each side. But the oldest building is a little larger. It's also apparently one of the busier facilities because it's close to the boating and day use area.
Our oldest bathroom building.
The interior is in pretty sad shape. The building hadn't been properly winterized and I had started fixing broken water pipes a couple of weeks ago, but we put a stop to it as we realized that it needs a complete interior overhaul.
The problem is, our really busy period starts on June 27th, only about two weeks from now. There really wasn't time to get a contractor in to do the job. So we'll get it done in September when things quiet down. In the meantime, I had to get at least one toilet and sink working on each side so that they're usable. Not an ideal situation, but it's the best we can do.
Some of the leaks were in between the walls. No way to get at them without actually cutting pieces out of the walls. This had been done at some point in the past as well. And, I had to rip the urinal out of the men's bathroom because the drain pipe in between the walls was rotten and leaking.
As I finished one side, Ruth began cleaning it. She even cleaned the rafters as they were covered in cobwebs.
Anyway, enough of that nasty business. Ha...Cameron learned a new word today. "Nasty". He kept saying "that's a nasty bathroom Grandpa!". Yup.
We managed a walk around the park after dinner. Still hardly anybody here, and actually it's been cooler than average and that doesn't help attendance. Nice days, the sun is shining, but only a high of 17C (61F) forecast for today.
Five days ago I took a picture of some baby robins.
Five days ago.
Hard to believe this is the same nest...only five days later!

The trail was getting a bit overgrown so our hired help has been trimming it and putting down some wood chips. Much nicer!
The water level is back at it's highest point so far this year and rising daily.

Cameron! I had been hiding beside the bush with the camera and he found me!
