The family vacation revisited

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Wendy and I have been doing some dreaming – part of it comes from days gone by, and some from what we always hoped would be the opportunity to have family vacations together when our kids were grown, married and had their own kids.  The slide show above shows you a taste of one of our vacations.  You can see that Phil and Jason were young – and we were at Sandbanks Provincial Park with a tent trailer.  I should add, we had a Chev Cavalier with a 4 cylinder 1.6-litre engine pulling that trailer with us and all out stuff.  It always did better downhill.

These were great days. We sure didn’t have much money but we had the trailer and we always ate well. Wendy was the master of easy to make, but delicious meals!

Of course, the boys loved being outdoors and near the water and with some books, a few good games and our handy eat-in tent, we were usually set to enjoy a couple of weeks in “the wild”.

Years later we moved up to the Hybrid trailer but we did enjoy these days.

Now we wonder – will we, in retirement, get to do something similar with the grandchildren?
