Long Point Camping

Mike and I went camping at Long Point again last weekend.  We were actually there for five nights.  Mike’s uncle lent us his trailer and my little mother lent us her car, so we were going in luxury.  As the last time we were there, I had to plank things:

The camping trailer was so fast and easy to set up – we couldn’t believe it:

Soon after setting up, we went for a short walk on the beach.  Saw this little cutie – not sure what kind of bird it is:

We just chilled for the rest of the day.  I was a little pooped from the drive, plus we had to save our energy for the next day.  We were signed up for zip lining at Long Point Eco-Adventure.  Our session started at 11:00, which allowed us to kinda take our time in the morning.  We had six other people in our group.  After gearing up and taking a ground school, we zip lined off the second floor of the building and over to the first platform in the trees.  There were eight altogether.  The extra nice part was I have a helmet strap for my GoPro video camera, so Mike and I took turns wearing it while zipping along.  I’ll post some videos on my video page very soon!Here’s one of the great views:

Taking a small break after walking across a cool suspension bridge then over to the next platform:

After doing the final line which was 800 feet, I decided to dangle and have a little rest:

It was an amazing day.  We hope to go back in September and do the night zip lining!  We just need enough people to join us.We spent the rest of the trip mostly just relaxing.  We did have to go into town the day after zip lining as I had a little issue with my toothbrush.  After brushing, I flicked the head to dry it off.  Bad idea:

While in town (Port Rowan), we wandered around to the different stores.  We also stopped in at our favourite restaurant, the Sunrise Cafe:

Yummy.  They really have great food.Back at the campsite, it was time for more relaxing.  We sat down and worked on a Disney Planes activity book with a nice bottle of wine that Mike’s dad made:

The next day we drove down the road to a really nice trail around a pond.  Saw some cute little geeselettes:

Also a little frog that wasn’t too keen on letting me catch him:

A couple of nights, we got the fire going and made some piggies out of weenies:

It was an awesome trip.  We were actually planning on going home Monday but decided to stay an extra day.  We can’t wait to go back in September!Today’s symptoms:  Still a bit weak.  After the camping trip, I was much more fatigued than normal.  I went home sick from work early on Thursday and Friday.  I actually left before 10am on Friday, went home and slept for two hours!  Spent all of yesterday in the apartment as I still wasn’t feeling well enough to go out.  Kinda sucks that I typically have to pay physically for doing out of the norm stuff such as camping, but it’s totally worth it!
