I’m Still Here

Sorry haven’t blogged for several days.  Hasn’t really been alot to blog about and didn’t want to bore you. 

The weather has taken a turn for the warmer side.  We did have a rainy day and today is overcast, but I can see patches of blue.  That’s promising.

We changed our site.  Since we got here, I have not been pleased with our original site.  It was totally surrounded by trees, short ones and some very tall ones.  When the sun came out, it could not penetrate to our site so we sat in shade.  Great, if it’s 90 degrees outside which of course it’s not.  It was dismal, and most depressing.  I had been hounding the manager here since we arrived for another site but he said they were all spoken for.  So I started checking out other campgrounds.  Didn’t really want to move as we really like this place but I couldn’t see sitting in the shade for 2 months.  We were on our way to check out another campground but decided to give it one more short on the way out yesterday morning, I whined alot, said how depressing it was, you get the picture.   We had driven around the park prior to this to see what sites we would like to be on and that were empty.  The manager said let me check, so he got on his computer and started checking, and I gave him my list.  Well one of the ones on my list wasn’t really available, he said he was holding it for someone.  Well maybe that ‘someone’ wasn’t staying as long as us as he said we could have it.  Asked us when we wanted to move and we said RIGHT NOW.  Must admit it was somewhat of a PITA to disconnect everything, shove everything inside to one place so we could bring in the slides.  But it’s worth it.  And we were able to fill up our propane tank while we were at it.  This site is much longer and much, much brighter.  We actually do get the sun.  Yeah.

There is a tall ship in the harbour here today so we are going down to check it out a bit later and also make a trip to the pet store to get our guys their raw food diet.

So will continue later, hopefully with some pictures.

We went down to the harbour and indeed there was a tall ship moored there.  She’s called Peacemaker.

You could just board her and give yourself a tour.  I would have loved to see below decks, the quarters etc.  but they were off limits.

It was very foggy over the harbour and it was just starting to burn off when we left.  The sun was trying to come out but I think it’s given up.  But it is warmer so I’ll just have to be happy with that.

Until later then..take care.


  1. See, ask and you shall receive, we aren't shy and it doesn't cost a cent to ask, as long as you don't mind the extra move. On the plus side you will enjoy the remainder of your stay a whole lot more. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  2. Way to keep at it until you finally got a better site. I'm sure with the warmer weather now, you'll really enjoy the park even more.

  3. We will always ask for a better site and sometimes we actually get one. I really enjoying visiting those sailing vessels.
