We really, really, really like seeing Mr. Sunshine showing up at our door step each morning. He brings us our slippers, computers (modern day newspapers), and our coffee. It’s enough to make one break forth in song:
Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I've got a wonderful feeling,
Everything's going my way.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that adds up. It takes me three hours to pick up the trash, clean 10 to 12 sites, and clean the rest rooms. Yesterday, surprisingly, we had 10 more departures and three arrivals. The reason we get the sites done right after departure is because we do get “walk ins” which happened yesterday with an additional three check ins. Miss Judy is keeping busy in the office; not straight out, but busy none the less. This is a great little campground for workamping.
So, what’s today going to bring? According to the weather dudes, warm and sticky weather this morning and thunder storms with strong wind and hail this afternoon. What Mainer’s call warm and sticky is what us southerners refer to as spring.
Comments from yesterday’s blog entry. Terry says 13 more sleeps (12 now) – she must not be planning any naps. Mikee says a bike trip on Friday is a possibility – but 20 miles, out of the question (wimp).
Actually, we’ll have to tote our bikes to Topsham and do the Brunswick trail on Friday as Judy has a hair appointment and I need to visit Pete’s Barbershop (or get a dawg license). The Brunswick trail is two and a half miles (one way), but there are some hills. We can depart from Mike and Peggy’s and that would give us another mile (one way). It’s a pretty trail that follows along the side of the Androscoggin River.
Ducks grow fast. A couple of weeks ago we saw momma duck and three little ducklings, yesterday we saw her again with three much larger ducklings. Wouldn’t you know, we didn’t have our camera with us. But, yes, the ducks are slowly making there way back to Wild Duck Campground.
I guess there were hundreds of them here last year. They make quite a mess of the area around the pond so Chris didn’t offer to feed them this spring in hopes of reducing the population. I think it worked as we have only seen a couple of Mallards, a couple of Wood Ducks, and Momma duck with her ducklings.
Bye, bye for now. Take Care Until Next Time - - - - - -
