Camping with Friends

We spent the Labour Day weekend camping with friends at a free forestry campsite 40 km up the lake from our was an ideal campsite, small with just six sites but situated beautifully. The lake was nice and shallow for swimming in the fisherman caught lots of fish-mostly nice sized troutbut also a small lake char. Not to mention the company, which was very pleasant-the kids got along great and played nonstop.

This was our last camping trip before heading off on our adventure in October and it only reinforced our decision and heightened our excitement about the upcoming winter.we didn't forget anything too crucialand the trailer functioned well for our family-though both the husband and I CAN NOT WAIT to have the lifts installed. On that front, after returning from camping we got word that all has been approved so now we just wait for an install date.

I took a lot of photos (laughed at myself when I caught myself thinking "I should take a photo for the blog") so I'll post a few of those now, as I must rush off to get ready for the second day of teaching my two daughters here at home. The first day went really well, and hopefully I will get a post up about the first week over this next weekend.

sand toys and rocks?why not?

the only problem with catching lots of fish...

is gutting them all

waiting for the fisherman to come back. 
inspecting her big sisters catch

all eight! Of them

not squeamish, but by the last day she didn't want to fish if she'd have to gut them...

our dog loves to swim... Wonder how he'll do with the ocean?

it was such a fabulous beach for swimming... Shallow for ages, and sandy.

it's always nice when the people you camp with have toys! Off for a quad ride

the scenery was just fabulous, when the lake is like this it reminds me of molten silver

just a precursor to the fabulous sunset to come...

we were treated to a beautiful sunset one night

we live in such a beautiful country, it will be hard to leave but good to know that we will always come back.
