It was kind of funny when Robert and Karen showed up!
Yesterday morning I figured out and installed our new "push for service" button. It seems pretty obvious that you walk up to the office window and if there's nobody around you push the bright yellow button. I really didn't think we would also need a sign telling people all of that, but maybe we do. So I figured we would just leave it as is and see if people could figure it out on their own.
What do you think? Can people figure it out without a sign telling them?
So, now it was just a matter of waiting for a customer.
Later in the afternoon, I was in the house and I saw a motorhome pull up. I was all set to go out and greet them, when Lindsey said "No, wait and see if they push the button!". So I did. And sure enough, my pager went off, alerting me to the fact that someone was waiting for service at the office.
The system works!
So I went out to meet them, and explained that they passed the test of our new paging system.
The guy says "yeah, well we've been reading your blog so we knew exactly what to do!".
What? Too funny. It turns out this is Robert and his wife Karen. They've been reading our blog regularly for quite some time and we've actually had a few email conversations over the years regarding Mexico and Nova Scotia RV'ing. But I had no idea he was coming to visit.
We had a campfire in the evening and Robert stopped by to chat. Karen was feeling under the weather, so she stayed in their motorhome to rest.
Lindsey, Cameron, Ruth, and Robert.
They have a home base in Edmonton, but they spend summers at an seasonal RV lot in Nova Scotia. More time in the motorhome than anywhere else. Our kind of living. They also did five years going to Mexico in their motorhome, but the last two in Texas.
So now, they're headed east following our friends Chris and Juan. Robert also follows their blog and was hoping to meet them, but maybe he'll catch up to them along the way.
So, that's our fifth set of visitors already this year, and we know there are more coming. We like getting visitors!
Here's our favorite header photo from July of 2008. We spent the month on Prince Edward Island, and we think this pic really shows some typical P.E.I. scenery...
