As I mentioned in my last blog, about the adorable lost dog I had the privilege of helping to find her owner, Mike and I went camping again. As usual, we went to Long Point and camped out at the same perfect site that we always take. We borrowed my mother’s crossover and Mike’s uncle’s pop-up trailer again.
After setting up, we played some sports (catch, frisbee, badminton, etc.) then Mike went for a swim. I sat and watched as I’m not a huge water fan:
My view was great, so I was quite content just sitting there:
Friday, we again played a ton of sports. We were both so pooped in the afternoon, we had to take a nap. Afterwards, we started a fire and roasted some weenies (piggly wigglies or whatever they’re called when you cut them like this):
We flew kites that night as well:
Mike thought I was being mean just because I kept dive-bombing his kite and knocking it out of the air. I figured I was just being friendly…. On a bright note, as I went to retrieve my kite, which fell from the sky after my string broke, I saw this adorable butterfly. I’m happy with how the picture turned out (taken on my iPhone):
On Saturday, the weather was poopy so our plan was to go into town. Of course, we had to visit our favourite restaurant, the Sunrise Cafe in Port Rowan. They make the best burgers and poutine there. We love chatting with the owner, but she wasn’t there that day. Her daughter said she would be in the next day. Or darn, we would have to go back.
We unfortunately found it necessary to get some treats, like this Nanaimo bar and brownie. What can I say – we were talked into it:
On Sunday, we decided to check out something kinda neat. In Courtland, there’s the Gopher Dunes which has a bunch of tracks for amateur cycles, trucks, off-road vehicles, etc. What I really wanted to see was the trucks running through the mud bogs:
It was so neat to watch. There were about five that broke down and had to be towed out (by a huge green tractor) during the hour we were there. Poor dudes:
What a neat experience! Have fun cleaning your vehicles:
We were camping for four awesome nights. It was one of the best camping trips ever. Can’t wait to head back (hopefully in May).
I have one more item to share about our camping trip, but I’ll do it in my next blog.
Today’s symptoms: I’ve been, and not surprisingly, completely drained and blah since we’ve been back. I always pay for these kinds of trips, but they’re completely worth it. I spent most of today in bed, but paws crossed I feel better tomorrow.
