THIS IS THE WAY WE DO OUR WORK, DO OUR WORK, DO OUR WORK, EARLY IN THE MORNING….
Today I thought you might like to come along with us on our early morning rounds.
As you can see, we started a little late this morning. We usually start at 7:00 am but the park isn’t busy right now.
The first stop is to pick up our transportation. Battery powered golf carts. We have two but we like the faster one.
And who’s this coming up the hill. The boss! She usually goes out early and has a report on what’s what in the park.
Then we stop at the gatehouse, put up the rollers and load up with firewood and ice, as required.
Then it’s on the the pump house where we check the flow of water and the chemicals in it. We have really good water in the park. Rain water with just a touch of chlorine.
Not everyday but today we checked the playground to make sure that it’s safe for the children.
On we got to the Day Use/Beach area. We check the garbage, the washrooms, the change houses and the beach.
This morning there was a pair of Grebe at the water’s edge.
I like to keep the fountain clean. The Canada Geese find it convenient to roost on the fountain and they leave their dirty mess.
The washrooms and change houses are clean. Off we go.
The main washrooms take a little longer to clean. Toilet paper replaced, sinks and toilets cleaned, floor mopped.
Heading back now, we encounter a party boat coming in. We have a nice boat ramp and the locals like to launch here because it is Free!
Like most places of work, the water cooler is where we meet to discuss our morning. Oh, that’s not a water cooler, that’s a giant propane tank. Oh well, same conversation!
