As I mentioned in my last post, P and I went on a 5 day outback camping trip. It’s amazing what a trip can do to your perspective on life. Algonquin park is a huge land full of gorgeous lakes and forests. Camping in and among them (without the distraction of our phones, computers or television) is such a different and rewarding experience, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
After canoeing and portaging all of our gear for four hours, P and I lay in our sleeping bags on the first night and reminisced about our cozy queen size bed at home. P mentioned that one of the reasons he loves camping is that it really gives him a deeper appreciation for the every day things we take for granted, and I couldn’t agree more.
While camping, we had been caught in the rain on more than one occasion which proved to be very unpleasant. After canoeing back in the rain, we arrived to the portage store and changed into clean clothes for the car ride home. On our drive home, it started raining, and I couldn’t help but do a sigh of relief, knowing that no matter what the weather did outside would not affect me. We are so lucky to have temperature controlled homes with comfortable couches and beds. Not to mention the fact that we have access to a grocery store and don’t need to hang our food up in a tree to keep it away from bears!
I will be sharing more photos and stories from our trip next week. Have a lovely weekend!
