Outpost Caretakers Week 17 ~ Fun & Games

January 6, 2012 | 774 Views

The new year arrived quietly under the cover of a grey sky and wispy low clouds. The forecast for an unusually cold winter has yet to materialize, which is a good thing. Just the other day we had a temperature of 10C and if I didn’t know better I would think that spring was just around the corner.

Mild as it may be it still looks like January.

Maybe because it is a new year and wanting to start fresh I get in the act of cleaning, resorting, reorganizing and basically taking stock of what’s left for our remaining time. After several days of taking down all the decorations, packing them up, vacuuming up all the needles that no matter how careful you are seem to scatter themselves into distant nooks and crannies and putting everything back where it belonged the lodge looks somewhat naked.

A break in the weather earlier this week lets me enjoy some time outside. Cleaning the front wall of windows which have taken a beating over the last month are crystal clear, the boardwalk is swept clean, the gutters emptied of those blasted pine needles, everything looks great….. until the next storm.

Now that the new year is here and there are no more holidays to plan for or decorations to think upon I turn my attention to other interests. Last year we brought in our Wii and it was only the last couple of days that I got around to setting it up. Afternoons you can now find me at the bowling alley, on the golf course or even in the boxing ring. A bit of friendly competition keeps things exciting as we try to best one another’s score.

So far Mike is the tennis champ but he can’t touch me when it comes to shooting the ducks!

And what would January be without the start of a new 1000 piece puzzle.

Till next week,

Heather & Mike

    When the sun comes out and the seas are calm we do hop in the tinney but we tend to do more sightseeing than fishing, however we are going to give it a go this spring.
    Would be nice to have some freshly caught fish for dinner.

      Are you staying on site? You need to be Out & About in the off season. May I suggest a fishing trip to Panama? The fresh Pinia Coladas are wonderful.
      Hope all is well.

    Do you and/or Mike ever try fishing the bay when the weather permits? And if so have you ever caught anything?
