Exploring Nature’s Playground

10 Jul

This past weekend Dustin and I decided to shake things up a bit.  Rather than me go there or him come here, we met halfway for a weekend of camping.

We did a last minute booking for a campsite at Charleston Lake Provincial Park near Ganonoque, ON and I’m so glad we did.  This park is absolutely gorgeous and very family friendly (read: no drunken college students drinking until 5am).

We spent the Friday evening chilling by the camp fire whilst enjoying some spicy chili with guac and chips, care of me.  With the obligatory beer of course 😉

Unfortunately, Saturday morning was slightly damp with a bit of rain.  Our breakfast of bagels and tea were not nearly as enjoyable, but luckily for us that didn’t last long and the sun once again came out to join us.

We then had the good intentions of hiking along one of the many trails that Charleston Lake has to offer.  Deciding we were up for the challenge, we embarked on their 10km Tallow Rock Bay trail which is their most difficult.

Though the views were absolutely stunning, the deer flies attacked us 3km in and we had no choice but to turn back.  We then opted for the beach instead.

We finished off our second night with a delicious Channa Masala care of Dustin, corn on the cob and another round of ice cold beers.

Life is good.

When Sunday rolled around we ventured into Ganonoque for a whirlwind tour of the city of the 1000 isalnds.

Ice Cream, Nachos and Lattes were to be had, along with more beer.  As you can see, I’m clearly not the pregnant one of this blog duo.

After reading this, I’ve realized I need to go for a run stat. And eat a vegetable.
