It had been more than two weeks since my last post..
Oh, sure I have posted pictures over the past few days on Facebook but putting a blog post together just didn’t seem to happen..
We have been busy doing a whole lot of nothing or so it seems..that is until we read our neighbour’s blog entries..Dianne does a lovely job on her blog and seems to be able to write about our daily happenings and turn it into something..
I would just like to say if you are interested in reading her blog about our daily adventures..DITTO
So the adventures at Monck Park?..
The boys have gone fishing..
..I borrowed these two photos from Steve and Dianne..
We have had some wild and wacky weather?
..and the very next day..the ‘lolly-gaggin’ came to an end..
but not before one last dinner out..The Game On Pub in Merritt..
April 15th was our first day of ‘actual work’..Monck Park is open to campers..but there was still a ton of those lovely pine needles to rake..and campsites to clean..
We were armed with the ‘tools’ we needed??..well, we made do..
And we set out bright and early..only 119 sites to clean..but one Loop at a time..
..oh sure we had a ton of fun with our co-workers, Steve and Dianne Colibaba..we made a fine team of four ( our managers, Doug and Toni are not feeling well)..armed with our rakes..we ventured into the abyss of pine needles..
We have worked three days so far..working on the ‘chain gang’ as we called it..
..these two items have been our best ‘buddies’..
Truck load after truck load of needles..
We had the first loop done in two days..next phase was the playground and then it was time for the day use area..
By days end today we had raked 24 pick up truck loads of pine needles, twigs and pinecones..the needle mountain is growing!
..a successful three days of work..but we are now taking the weekend off..
There are four campers in our newly cleaned sites..nice to see families camping already!
The four of us ventured into the big town of Merritt for a pizza and beer dinner..
..oh deer, we had a visitor in the compound tonight too..
Tomorrow we will be able to enjoy some ‘down time’..a leisurely breakfast, a walk with the dog and of course there is those darn household chores that will need to be done!
..thanks for reading along with us..
