Shadybrook officially opened this weekend. Finally the ground is dry enough to drive around. However, the water is not turned on yet so there is no staying overnight.
We headed west in the afternoon – after AMA came to boost Red’s battery and we renewed Red’s registration that expired in February.
Things were buzzing at Shadybrook when we arrived. Lots of people were out cleaning and setting up their sites. And the sun was shining.
We received approval to move Phoebe in to what we think is one of the best sites at Shadybrook. We back on to trees and the site is long. We set her up so far back from the road that she almost disappears. The previous renters of the site still had some items to remove. While we were setting up, they stopped by and asked if we wanted to buy the gazebo and shed from them. The price was right so we agreed. Woo-hoo, now we are set for the summer!
We got a work out by loading up all our wood in the truck and moving it over to the new site. Ned & Fred have a new woodpile to guard. They are settling in nicely. The Tails (Phin & Westley) supervised the move from the truck.
The only thing we still have to deal with is our shed on the other site. If the new renter wants it, we will sell it. If not, we have to figure out how to move it. Anyone have a flatbed trailer?
We love the new site. It’s a lot more private and backs on to forest. A 25ft front bed Airstream with large vista windows in the back would be perfect on this site. Come on lottery numbers…
We have a new character on our site to name. A stag. We have to get to know him better before we give him his proper name.
As we were moving our last load from Wilderness Way to Country Lane, it started to rain. It just wouldn’t be a trip to Shadybrook without some rain.
We'll be back in a couple of weeks for the May long weekend to set up Phoebe for the season. Next weekend we are off to the mountains (without Phoebe).
Mellissa & James live in Edmonton, Alberta and enjoy exploring. Currently our Airstream is parked at a seasonal site about an hour from our home.
