The Canadian July long weekend is a little goofy this year.
The Canadian holiday is actually July 1st...Canada's birthday. But July 1st is on a Tuesday this year. So that means that there's sort of an extra long long weekend because most people will begin their long weekend on the evening of Friday June 27th and not go back to work until Wednesday July 2nd.
But not everybody will have the Monday off work. Most people will take it off anyhow, but because some people really do have to go to work we have some people who have only booked for the Friday and Saturday. Others have booked for the Sunday through Tuesday nights. So we have the odd full service site available for one or two nights but not all.
I would expect that by the time the 27th arrives we'll be sold out...especially if the weather forecast is good.
Seems odd to be turning people away on the phone when the park is pretty much empty. Not empty of trailers, but empty of people. Most of the seasonal trailers have been dropped off, but there's nobody here. That will all change between the July long weekend and the August long weekend. We will be very busy between June 27th and August 4th.
Yesterday, Ruth and the kids went into the town of Cabri. They have a nice playground there.
Sadie, going down the slide with Mom's help.
Cameron, trying out the exercise equipment.
Back at the park, this pile of branches is actually a beaver lodge.
Remember our baby robins from a couple of weeks ago?
They've left the nest!
Long day tomorrow. I will be driving Lindsey and the kids to Regina airport so they can fly back to Nova Scotia. It's about 300 kms (185 miles) each way and we have to get up early! I think Ruth will be writing tomorrow morning's blog post!
Cameron, getting ready to go!
