This past weekend, July 11, 12, 13 was our first opportunity to take advantage of the 'free' camping in our home park. What a wonderful welcome, from not only the staff but from other members camping here. This is a members only park so it is well kept, well monitored and lots to participate in at no cost if you so choose. We can stay here anywhere from 2 to 14 days at no cost as long as we move out for the same number of days before we come back and do it again. Quite a deal! The bonus doesn't stop there as once we are full time, there are many locations across Canada and the U.S. where we can stop for a week free before moving on to another destination.

After set up we walked the park, oohing and aahing at the facilities and amenities as well as checking out the other trailers and vehicles. We relaxed a bit back at the site with some reading etc. before getting dinner on the go, sausages in a bun on our Weber Q 200. Since our friends had just celebrated an anniversary we popped in to see the Yates' and deliver a card. Before you know it, an hour has passed and once again we chuckle at how time flies...........
After a good night's sleep, oh how I love our king size bed! I was up and out for a walk around the park with my camera just after 7:30 am. It was exciting when I found another Jayco Designer, a rare find, with 4 slides as opposed to our 3. I snapped a picture so I would remember to tell Bill.

Since it was a beautiful warm/hot day after my walkabout I followed the sun from our site as it rolled across the sky. We were facing west so had to move a bit in the morning to catch some of those rays. Bacon and eggs on Weber, a visit from George and Suzie to help Bill with his blogging and finally Clemson welcomed Suzie into his trailer and into his world. We knew it was only a matter of time.

I'm hoping Bill remembers most of what George showed him so he can in turn show me! I have a lot to learn for sure. Together we planned our first "social hour" and opted to host.
Bill and I went for a dip in the pool,

After dinner, we walked down to the valley to see the Designer. If you're not too shy, you can always meet some new friends, as we did. Upon asking about their trailer, Chris very kindly took us through. We'd never seen a set up like that before and found it quite nice for a 2007 model. Within 15 minutes back home, Bob came up and invited us to bring our chairs and join them for a campfire. How nice! The evening went well and quickly and we headed back home around 10 just before the rain started.
This is what its all about, great camping, new friends, lots of laughs and wonderful stories and tips. We do love this lifestyle.
The advantage of the membership park is that we don't need to wait for a check in time or abide by a check out time. We can come and go as we please and will get put on a site that is available. We aren't particular where we go but at least now have a better idea which ones to ask for when we come again.

We left around 2:30 and were home in good time to get the laundry done.
Thank you for checking in with me today, as always please feel free to drop me a line! I'd love to hear from you!
