The season begins

I arrived home a week ago, there has been so much going on that I just didn't have time to write anything. Brad did a super duper fantastic job keeping everything going in my absence.

What I didn't mention before is that while I was away Brad also went away just a few days after I left for a meeting which has been on the books for a bloody long time... so big thanks and kudos to Sandy (owner) for her super duper efforts for 4 days while we were both gone even though she was working full time too.

April long weekend we were half full, mostly trailers not so many tenters that time of year. The phone goes all day with bookings so its pretty busy. We have had a few fantastic reviews these past few weeks on Google and Tripadvisor, which is fantastic.

The newest member of our family is a BBQ, yup we finally did it - we bought a good'un too. Had a couple of steaks last night to christen it. Delish! I will be going through the recipes at  Our Awesome Travels and cooking up a storm.

We've been busy since I returned. I had to go through all the bookings to ensure all was well. We have been doing some last minute maintenance things around the grounds and I used my Daddy's weed concoction to kill all the greenery creeping into the parking lot, I will be doing the rest of the campground as/when I can get to it.

The new ice freezer was delivered in my absence which is kept on the front porch of the office. I had placed my order for store items but had to cancel it when my trip came up so that needs to be placed and then picked up from Victoria in the next couple of days.

I have ordered and received the new Square tap gadget for the campground store and it works great. I had originally ordered the little swipe thingy that you plug into your phone but the bloody thing never seemed to work and most people prefer tap anyway and chip is also an option with this particular gadget.

Time to open the showers so I have to run.

Thanks for your patience while I was away.

  4. Welcome back to your new normal life :) I hope Brad's meeting went well.

    Any chance that you cold share your Dad's weed recipe? Also a link or two to the park review sites would be neat.

      Take Note: This will kill EVERYTHING it touches, so great care is required.

Finally got the comment notification issue sorted out. Apparently Blogger has been having an issues and it wasn't just me. I had to remove my email address from the notification setting and then add it back on, approve the notifications and voila. July 3/18
