Today is the day!

And what a beautiful start to the day it is. A little bit crisp out there, but the sun is shining and it will warm up nicely. Supposed to be a high of around 17C (63F), so just a nice fall day.

I went out and took some early pics of our last morning at the park...

Clear blue sky...



The campers are all gone.

The compressor is on the way here to blow out the air lines, and then we can lock things up, have lunch, and hit the road. 

Next update from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan!

    1. Yes, it sure does, especially now that it is all over with. We will admit that there were a few days during the summer that we thought were never going to end.

    1. Yep, it is pretty exciting for us right now. Sort of like the same feeling we had almost ten years ago when we hit the road the first time after selling the house and just about everything in it. :-) Let the adventures begin!

    1. It ended up beginning almost the whole day rather than just the morning but it was a great day and we got it all done.

    1. Yes, one chapter ends but another new one begins and we are excited. :-)

      We haven't ruled that possibility out, one of the nice things about leaving on good terms. We will see how things go down the road for us and then decide in a year or two how we will proceed from there.

    1. Thank you Paul and Marsha. We have definitely left it in better shape than we found it and hopefully the next couple that take over our job will take as much care in the park as we did.

    1. Ah. You must have missed that post. Our friend Wendy had lent us her car to get to the park at the end of April. She was going to pick it up over the course of the summer, but never made it. So we drove it back to her yesterday, and she will drive us to the airport later this afternoon.
