On Duty :-)

 We have our duties and wow is it simple … meet and greet guests … yup that’s basically it! This is such a great opportunity for us, we get to spend the summer in our favorite campground and talk to people … right up our alley:-)  There are other things we can do to help out which is awesome because we like to be busy, but we can work those things around our schedule.

We were sitting in bed yesterday morning around 6:30 a.m. drinking our coffee and watching the news when we noticed a lady wandering around our campsite. The gates of the campground are locked from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and one of the reasons we are located where we are is so that we can open the gate at night in case of an emergency. We suspected this lady wanted the gate opened so hubby went out to chat with her and sure enough that was what she wanted. When hubby explained the gate hours she said it was okay, she would walk through the creek around the fence. This time of year that is definitely not safe so hubby opened the gate, which really was no biggie because we were up anyway.

Definitely not safe to walk through that water, the creek is running way to fast! 🙂

Before we headed into town yesterday morning to meet our Tuesday coffee group and run our errands we headed off around the park … camera in hand 🙂

We were in the one loop that is still closed and as we walked around a corner we came across four deer. They wasted no time running off into the bush but I was able to catch a picture of one of them running along the shores of Okanagan Lake. Like dandelions, deer are much nicer here than in our front yard at home.

The sun was out and the lake was very calm and I would have loved to grab my book and sit by the lake for a few hours, but meeting up with friends was also tempting and in the end our friends won out.

There is an interesting story behind this houseboat which I may do a blog on some day.

  I had to stop by the apricot tree and take some pictures, and yes Delma there are many bees working their magic 🙂

 

We did have a little scare last night when someone came by to tell us there was a forest fire in the hills above the campground, fortunately it turned out to be a controlled burn!

Until next time …

  1. The ‘Antlered Forest Rats’ appeared in the ravine behind our home yesterday. I don’t mind them either, as long as they stay on the other side of the fence. Sounds like you’ve got a great situation for the summer.

  2. Glad to hear that this new position is turning into a dream and not a nightmare. It would have been nice if you had been notified in advance about the Controlled Burn.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.
