I've had a pretty quiet spell for a few weeks. I'm glad Spring has finally put some warmth in the sun, and this long weekend was spectacular. There was a full moon and a pretty good frost for the first night or so, and I bet there were some cool campers down there at the hot spring a few mornings. There were an estimated 30 outfits camped out down there every day and a fair amount of day trippers coming and going.
Back down at this end of the property I had a nice Russian family in the guest cabin most of the weekend I did my best to entertain.
My buddy Josh arrived with several guitars and we treated them to a live 'set' on the Saturday night.
You may recall back a few posts about the wooden bear from the hot spring needing repairs last year and receiving a new lease on life. I had him set up by the front porch here until I got organised enough to move it back down to the hot spring, and I was getting pretty used to it being there, coming up with all kinds of excuses to put off taking him back down to the hot spring and turning him loose.
I have to admit, myself, and anyone else associated with the place, were getting a little sick of hearing, "Wheres the bear?".
During a walk thru of the campsite I happened to mention to Jill Lobley that I had briefly considered their help in relocating the bear back to his original spot. She was camped out with a large outfit up for the annual Easter trip to T'sek. I was thinking more in terms of next years visit for this project, and immediately realised my mistake. She charged off at a dead run and next thing I know bear nappers of every description have emptied out of her campsite and converged on the Lodge.
