Redeeming the time

Has there ever been a person who didn’t look forward to a restful vacation? Perhaps there has been but it wasn’t me, at least not this year! I could hardly wait!

Our trailer continues to age and each year I open it up in spring while holding my breath! Will the roof be leaking? Will the fridge start? Will the propane system be safe?

We are well into summer 2017 and enjoying our getaway spot. Here’s a few photos to make you wish you were with us!

Summer is a wonderful time! Join us at the lake….

 

How we began

camping20789This is not actually meant to be a blog post that is simply reflecting upon the past as much as it is a look back at how we as a family got into camping. It is true Wendy and I tried going out in a tent – once – and you’ll note by our camping trend that wasn’t quite what we were looking for. I love the outdoors and like eating outside, being outside, even watching a big storm while out camping. But tenting wasn’t for us.

Then we planned to take a vacation in the USA.

But as we were getting ready to go, Wendy fell ill and it turned out that she need her gall bladder out.  Because you can’t go to the gall bladder removal centre at the mall and just get it done, we found ourselves with a week and not too many options. So we contacted a relative you owned this small C class motorhome and asked if we could borrow it. Filling up the tank with fuel was about a week’s pay so we didn’t go too fcamping30789ar from home.

We headed to a wonderful campground near Barrie Ontario where these photos are from and while Wendy lived on soup and crackers we had a wonderful time camping with the RV. Because we had little extra cash and for a while, we ran a children’s camp we didn’t pick up our first trailer for a while. But this week did convince us that we would enjoy being a family out camping. And I have to say, some of my favourite photos are from that week. Here’s just a couple.
