    Right now I’m at home having morning tea but in 3 wks. my husband & I will be on Whitestone Lake in Dunchurch Ont at Duckrock Resort.. We rent a cottage there every summer since before we got married.

    At home in Vancouver currently with plans to camp on Gabriola Island and a week at a cottage on the Shuswap later this summer.

    Currently sitting on my desk enjoying what beautiful Victoria offers in the summer… Sunshine, blue skies and the ocean calling! My husband and I are looking forward to visiting Alconquin Park this summer to visit his family’s cottage there. My first visit to Alconquin! Truly an amazing country we live in!

    You can be living the city life in Toronto, beaching surrounded by mountains in Vancouver, canoeing the most gorgeous lakes in Alberta, watching for boats in PEI, having the one and only Maple Syrup in Quebec, wherever you are exploring the Great White North, the best thing is to be here! Eh?

    I’m in Halifax, Nova Scotia – I have camping sites booked in Kouchibouguac National Park in August and Kejimkujik National Park in September.


  6. Joan commented:

    In Ottawa, going through my camping gear, preparing for a week long canoe trip to my favourite place in the world; Algonquin Provincial Park. Can’t wait to hear the Loons and Wolves!

    I’m currently sitting with my feet up and my two-week old baby on my chest, at home in Kamloops, BC. I cannot wait to get this little guy (our fourth child) out on adventures in our amazing country! We are looking forward to adventuring close to home this year; checking out the awesome provincial parks (Wells Gray, Monck and Herald) in our area, camping with our new (and cloth diapered) babe, and exploring what BC has to hold.

    I’m just getting ready to go to the Gateway Music Festival in Bengough, SK. When music isn’t playing I’ll be exploring the Grasslands National Park and Cypress Hills Provincial park to see what the beautiful province of Saskatchewan has to offer me. Yukon Blonde here I come!

    Just sitting in the gatehouse of a garden surrounded by funky bed spring fencing and admiring the miracle of rain on a lazy Saturday afteroon. A rare experience for sure. The Bruce Botanical Food Garden thought to be the first garden of its kind in Canada located in Ripley Ontario a community where time has seemed to have stood still and that is the beauty. Lots of hands on opportunities for aspiring artists like learning to throw a pot, abundance of trails for a local food trek through the back 40 visiting the mennonite farm gates and the produce auction. Plenty of plein air for any one who needs a getaway or break from the fast lane. Next stop for a swim on Lake Huron at Boiler Beach where a boiler still sits abandoned on the shore not far from the Point Clark Lighthouse.

    Revving up to do the Crypt Lake hike in Waterton on the Labour Day weekend. I understand is one of the Rockie’s iconic hikes…


  11. Gudrun commented:

    I’ve spent the summer shuttling our kids to all kind of activities and even had our two weeks of camping cancelled because of the great weather we had (the hay was ready unexpectedly early, so we stayed to cut it).

    I’m really looking forward to the start of school so I can get back into the mountains (at least for day trips) to hang with the wildlife and breathe the alpine air!
