Camping! Love it!

summer 2008 193

My absolute favourite thing to do in the summer is go camping!  I love sleeping in a tent; waking up to the sounds of nature as the day begins (bliss).  I love cooking outdoors; food just tastes better when eaten outside, I think (yum).  I love gliding along the water in the canoe; getting as close to nature as this clumsy human can possibly get (shhh).  I love sitting by the campfire as the day ends, catching up on all of the conversations that never happen because of all the rushing around we always seem to do (ahhhh).

Camping seems to bring us closer.

There are a few things I could probably do without.  Mosquitos-I can definitely live without!  Shushing our dog during the wee hours when a racoon comes foraging for our crumbs.  Having to climb into a damp bed because someone forgot to cover it over before the dew came in.  Oh, and did I mention mosquitos?

Even with all the small nuisances, I love it!

Can’t wait for summer!
