Last day here, wrapping up a few last minute things.

Where are we today ? 
clic a pic to enlarge it
     Yup cold again overnight down to 26F (-3C) so again our water hose disconnected and we had a dusting of snow overnight. But not a bad day considering mostly sunshine all day and did get up to 41F (5C), Next to no wind at all . The sunshine makes everything better. Did get a nice walkabout to start the day
Snow on the car, hmm not what we like to see
     A nice walkabout around the perk over the creek , ducks there swimming upstream and the sun beginning to rise. Not much wind and a pretty decent day it looks like, considering.
this section not open yet, we have camped
 here a few times and really like it
       Then about 9:30 Suzie got our laundry all sorted and I went to the New Laundromat in town. Boy is it ever nice, state of the art facility. Same place as last year but they tore it all down and built a brand new laundry (in 3 months), new machines and a real nice new car wash as well. The same lady on duty that has now been there 7 years. She is busy showing people (me in particular) how to get a free card and load some money on it to use the machines, washers (all new front loaders of various sizes), dryers, vending machines for candy, drinks and soap all using the card. She is very friendly and constantly wiping down the machines, tables, floors and dusting. So I got 3 loads washed and dried all in 45 minutes. (8 bucks) I folded it quickly and back home after Suzie had cleaned our coach, and helped her put the sheets back on the bed .
very nice  facilty
spotlessly clean too
          Suzie put all the laundry away while I made lunch (teamwork), All this done by 11:30 then I made a quick trip to 3 stores, less than a mile away for a few last minute items. Back home we backed our coach up to dump our sewage and top up our fresh water, store our hoses, checked tire pressures then pulled ahead a bit to hook up our car so we are ready to head out in the morning. Then I went to have a nice long hot shower by the pool, awesome showers. Checked the pool and hot tub, but not going there today, there was over 30 people there and mostly young children having too much fun (noise) that is really loud in an indoor pool. Let them have their fun, we can go at the quiet times. Don't need to go there unless our family (grands) is with us.
here we are ready to hit the road
don;t like doing it on the cold mornings 
 
       All these people are here using the facilities or doing tours with sales to buy memberships . Amazing the number of tours they do here every day. Selling memberships is what this type of camping is all about and this campground proves it with all the upgrades they have done and wonderful faclitities that they have. Most of the many cabins here have been full all, week and a lot of campers plus members using the park.
people using the facilities 
always busy here on the weekends
even a few campers here as well
         Will be getting home 2 days earlier than planned, but have a few things we would like to take care of, dentist appointment for Suzie and make arrangements to get the body work done on our coach from the hit and run accident last week.
           Just relaxed for a couple hours reading inside, now as we ready to go in the morning. For supper tonight gonna have an open faced hot pork sandwich to go with our salad, quick easy and tasty.
nice and tasty sure dod the trick tonight
found a new 4 flavours of hummus at Aldi in town
great price too, another great grocery store we enjoy
         We just enjoyed a great day here in Wapakonta another small town America that we enjoy hanging out at. Got things taken care of and ready to hit the road in the morning. For the last part of our journey back home. Getting excited to see our family once again and a brand new grand daughter as well.
        Hope y'all had a great day and thanks bunches for following along with us.
