It has been a while now since I’ve posted something on my blog. It has been a busy summer for us. We are not living in California anymore and came back home, to Canada! It has been a bit stressing for the four of us but hopefully things will come back to a more steady routine.
We have always done camping since we met with my husband, and I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I have all these years. Yesterday we got back from Algonquin Park here in Ontario. Gorgeous place, I have been here twice before but never portaging like we did this week. Four portages and five lakes!!!! I thought that the kids would not be able to handle the walking and carrying their stuff and sitting very still in the canoe…but they did!
Here are some of our best images of this awesome trip, can’t wait for next summer!!!
Getting some gas and then we are set to go. Algonquin here we come!!!!
Taking a break before we do the first lake.
We had to wait, it started to rain and we couldn’t go…
Then we found our chance to do it, Magnetawan Lake was our first one.
Our first camping spot. So we did five lakes but the first day we did only 3 and camped one night at Ralph Bice Lake, too big to do it when the weather was not so nice. Next day we were heading towards Queer Lake but had to do Little Trout Lake before.
I was on charge of that fat red bag…amazing how you can get used to the load after a couple of stops. That canoe has quite a mileage, has been everywhere and it has been in my husband’s family since he was 3ish? We got some nice compliments from various people on this trip.
That’s Phil trying to find a nice spot to bring in the canoe.
Kids loved it so much, we still can not believe it. There were no complaints or requests to go back home. They went in the water, they ate their food, they didn’t mind the “toilet” in the woods, they were great!
Kids peeling the hard boiled eggs we brought for lunches or dinners.
Having rocks for a snack! (they were actually chocolates that looked like rocks, got them at the bulk store)
I got caught eating my pasta and eggs!!!
It was a beautiful experience and now I’m looking forward to our next summer and next location. Also, we are very happy to be back to Canada now, you don’t appreciate something until you don’t have it, we had so much here. I really want my kids to grow in a nice environment, with a good sense of community and of course with some culture to pass on to other generations.
