A Walk in the Woods
I am not a camper, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, this image here is actually a picture of me. 😉 However, every once in a while, I do go camping, or off to camp, and my church’s Family Camp weekend is one of those exceptions. And so, I spent Canada Day long weekend (which also happened to be Canada’s 150th birthday!) at a camp in the woods, getting attacked by killer mosquitoes, getting sunburned, getting heat exhaustion, avoiding a roaming bear and experiencing a severe lack of sleep. Despite all of these things though, I had a great time, and ironically out of my whole family (who do enjoy camping) I ended up spending the most time at the camp. I brought my camera along, which I was glad about, as there were so many pretty sights. Here are a few snapshots from my weekend at camp, and from a walk in the woods. (A quick walk in the woods, as we didn’t want to meet up with that bear!)

Oh dear mosquitoes are the worst!! I am glad they didn’t dampen your spirits too much x

They are the worst! You’re outside and you think to yourself, well isn’t this nice, until you hear that telltale high pitched noise 🙁

Such lovely photos! The butterfly is especially beautiful. How did you tempt her onto your finger?

Thanks! My sister is the one who picked up the butterfly. It was on the path, and she almost stepped on it 🙁 so she gently picked it up and moved it into the sun. I think that maybe it was cold, so it didn’t fly away right away. I was glad to be able to quickly snap some pictures before it flew away.

You took some lovely photos.
The only camping I do now is glamping, which is basically a hotel room in a tent : P

Thanks Suzanne! I could totally get behind glamping- like the Victorians on their Safari expeditions with all their fine china and tablecloths and canopies 🙂 🙂

I’m not a camper either, though nature is so beautiful, and you managed to get some lovely shots of your time in the wild.

Thanks- it’s the sad truth that in order to get some good shots, it means you have to brave the wilds! 🙂

Looks like a lovely spot. I quite enjoy camping but only in dry weather!

Oh yes- camping in rainy weather is a whole different experience 🙂
