Doug got a tomato plant for his birthday. The soil here is not great as this is semi-arid desert but we are taking care to fertilize it and water it at least twice a day. We also have a dinosaur and an army man guarding it from chipmunks.

We do have laundry facilities of a sort for staff at the park. However doing laundry in the hot weather is quite a task. You see, the washer and the clothes line is up there....

The name of this park is Monck but it has nothing to do with the hundreds of chipmunks in the park. You see the difference in the spelling. The park is named after the family who donated the property before WWII. The family name was Goldman but the son was about to go to war and thought it would not be good going to war with a Jewish name so he used his mother's maiden name - Monck.
But there are a lot of chipmunks and squirrels here. They are pretty tame too.
We have learned that when we are on our days off, like right now. We bring the Park Host sign in. Even when we show the "Off Duty" sign, campers knock on the door at all hours.
We are better than half way done here. Soon we will be on the road again and not have to post such boring blogs.
