Aww nuts…


How on earth does someone do a recap of the past seven months?…

aww nuts

The last post that I did was on May 16..fast forward to today, December 31....a mere seven months later..I am feeling like ‘oh why even bother?’..

I did manage to post some monthly photos on my Facebook page but that was about as much as I could muster…there was no ‘real excuse’..other than not wanting to…I had basically lost interest..

I could  backtrack and highlight each month of ‘being in Park mode’..but I won’t bore you with that..

yes, we will be returning to Tunkwa  in  the Spring of 2018 for another ‘work season’..

Our winter season is being spent at Nk’mip Rv Park in Osoyoos…we are here till April 2018.

So now as the 2017 year is coming to a close..my blog will be doing same..

We are doing just fine …but life goes on and blogging is being left behind..So I will now join the ranks of those who have ‘left blogville’ ….

Hoping that everyone is well and healthy and that 2018 will be a good year for all of us…

The ‘Cavalry’ Has Arrived?

May 7-16, 2017

Spring has sprung and the weather that rolls in over the lake is every changing..

021017

This morning, May 16, we woke to a light dusting of snow?..Merry Christmas!?

The birds are aplenty here at the park..

005

a Momma Goose, sitting on her nest..

009

another Momma..this time a killdeer, taking up residence in one of the ‘sites’..

The eagles are busy fishing..

014

012

and the ‘hawks’or is that an osprey?

024

Tucker is ‘waiting patiently..

001

for the arrival of the ‘Cavalry?’

Here comes that very familiar rig…

002

003

…Tucker was so happy to see his ‘favorite cookie suppliers’

004

and so were we..so nice to have some more assistance  at the park this season..

We are most fortunate to have two regular volunteers that have been at the park for a few years now..the two of them are irreplaceable but the newbies will be a great addition to the ‘crew’..

025

The compound is alot ‘fuller’ than it was a few days ago..but we are so happy to be parked side by side again..

008

The first day of work for ‘our newbies’ was Monday, May 15..

029027

..right back in the swing of things!!.didn’t take them too long to  catch on…

stay tuned for more from Tunkwa Lake…

007

..we are just about to embark on the ‘busiest weekend of the season’..more about that once it is ‘over’!!

Wild and wacky?

April 27- May 6, 2017

Life at almost 3800 feet can be challenging at the best of times but then there are those ‘freaky days’..the ones where Mother Nature’s sense of humour is ‘just plain old mean’!

Yes, we woke to snow this morning..will winter ever be over??

001

002003

within a  few hours it was but a distant memory..

004

just a small reminder from this morning’s snowfall..

009

We have a few campers..those ‘die hard’ fishermen..looking for that ever elusive fish…

008

The wood is stacked and ready to sell..

006

The extra firepits are prepped..

005

The water table is still high…

007

The eagles are ‘fishing’..

012027

030028

..and those ‘marmots’ are back for another season…

024031

013026

The campers are slowing starting to arrive..as I write this our second full weekend of being ‘open for business’ is half over..

001002

We had barbecued  hamburgers for  dinner and black forest birthday cake for dessert!

007
