Our main bathroom has been under renovation for the past six weeks. How can it take that long? Because the construction guys that were hired don't put in more than about 4 hours per day, and that's when they show up to begin with!
At the start of the job, they told me they should be done by the end of May. Yes, almost four weeks ago. Now, I'll agree that they were held up a couple of days by the electrical work, but it's still no excuse. They knew that our deadline to have it finished was June 26th, and it's not going to be ready. They'll be close, but I don't see them finishing up over the next three days. Especially when they only put in a four hour day!
It's not my call, but if it were me I wouldn't be in a big rush to pay the final bill.

As campers ourselves, we've been in some pretty scuzzy campground bathrooms and we think there's no excuse for that. You shouldn't be afraid to use the bathroom at a campground, and we've read where terrible bathroom facilities are one of the top campground complaints. So one of our goals here at the park is to get the bathroom facilities up to what our standards are. It's slow going, but it's coming along!
This park is big on recreational boating and water activities and unfortunately the water level isn't going to cooperate this year. There was very little snow last winter in the Rocky Mountains west of here and the run off has already stopped. The latest forecast says that the lake won't reach it's peak this year.

When it reaches it's peak later on this summer, the water level is forecast to be a good three feet lower. Oh well...nothing we can do about that. The lake will still be usable, but people will not be able to leave their boats in the water.
Today's our day for going into town to do shopping. It'll be the last day that I will go. Starting next week Ruth will have to go in on her own. I'll pretty much be here at the park for the next six weeks straight. That's okay. I've been looking forward to the busy season. The time will go by quickly.
And in Canada...
