The first long weekend of the camping season for 2013 is now done.
It is the official beginning of reserving campsites, packing up and hitting the road to a great camping destination.
Yes, we are what is deemed campers. Escaping the confines of our home, our jobs, and the ‘rat race’ known as life in the big city.
A few days spent with the ‘big white box’ is good for what ‘ails you’. A weekend filled with campfires..
and enjoying all that mother nature has to offer..
..does wonders for those of us who have to ‘head back to work’ after some time away.
…some ‘s’mores’ were made..
..and some ‘sandal’s were burned..a ‘Doug and Toni’ yearly ritual..
….a bed was shared with the ‘four-legged’ boy..sorry Carlie..
..we even had some time for a ‘four-wheeling’ adventure…
a narrow ‘goat trail’ ..destination?..
..the lake wasn’t really blue..more green?..
..but Tucker went swimming anyway..he doesn’t care about the colour of the water..
he just cares about swimming..
..and chewing the bark off the trees..
..so as this first official long weekend comes to a close..we can say we are ‘happy campers’..
..even though this was our third trip so far this year, it was nice to pack up and ‘pop down’ a dry trailer..one can only hope that is the beginning of the better ‘camping weather’..
thanks for the hospitality, Doug and Toni..it was much appreciated!!
