|Unwinding after a long day. The camera is out to get some moon and star shots after night falls.|
We were delighted to host a film crew from the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) for 12 nights earlier this month. They were here to film at a local bear rehabilitation sanctuary as part of a nature documentary series for BBC Earth.
Jim and I are big fans of BBC programming, so we were thrilled to have a peripheral connection to the production. Of course we made sure our "boys from the beeb" were well-fed and comfortably housed, but they also enjoyed unwinding with a bonfire, a bit of "footy" with the soccer ball, or a soak in the hot tub after a long day of shooting.
And boy, did they put in long days! They started early every morning and often worked well into the evening. Definitely a hard-working, focused team. And yet, even with the long hours, they were still absolutely lovely guests. Always pleasant and cheerful -- even early in the morning before the first cup of coffee! -- and happy to share their stories and adventures with us.
They've promised to let us know when the documentary comes out, and we'll be sure to let you know, too.

|Thanks, boys, for a great visit!|
