I think everybody is wondering where the week has gone. The long weekend’s are nice, but it doesn’t leave much time to get things done during the next week. Our week seemed even shorter with about 7 campers coming in yesterday for the weekend. Another 6 or so are expected tonight. We even had a couple from Pennsylvania stop by last night. After enjoying a relaxing night they were on their way bright and early this morning. These rain showers are supposed to end this morning and then the forecast is still calling for sunny and close to 20C for this weekend, we can only hope that it happens. Last night was a beautiful night with no wind and still fairly warm temps. This weekend’s activity is free mini golf. We are giving every camper a free round of mini golf.
The one thing that I did manage to get done this week was to set up a new online reservation system for our website. With this system you can actually check availability to see if there are any sites open for specific dates. I was also able to set it up so that our value packages can be booked online. That was a nice feature and hopefully will help to promote them. We have had a few bookings for the packages already this year, but could always use more. I do have one more minor change since with the new system instead of our weekly rate being get one night free I had to enter it is as a percentage discount. Now I have to change the rates table on our website to match the reservation system. It still works out to approximately the same price, but there is a difference of $1 or so on some rates.
Elementary, My Dear Watson
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes his faithful friend.
“Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”
Watson replies, “I see millions of stars.”
“What does that tell you?”
Watson ponders for a minute. “Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Timewise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?”
Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks. “Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent.”
