Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Skunk Cabbage Boardwalk (June 2010)

Sounds like an appealing hiking spot…  

Music Monday – “Put out my lawn chair/Watching the sun arising/Evening comes/I’m watching the sun go down” #saskatchewan #sask #camping #provincialparks #summer #echovalley #fortquappelle

I’ve finally had time to go through all the pictures (2000+!) that I took over the course of the entire summer and winnow them down to a handful of favourites. That’s still more than most people should have to sit through at a single sitting so what I did was create a long slideshow with […]

10 Reasons Why Taking A Seasonal Camp Site Led To Me Having One of the Best Summers of My Life!

It could’ve easily gone the other way. If we’d had a rainy summer, if we had neighbours who played loud rap until all hours of the morning (nothing against rap – just not my idea of campground music), if we hadn’t been able to get out to our site as much as we did, if […]

Music Monday – “All summer long we’ve both been free/Won’t be long til summer time is through/Summer time is through”

One of the most poignant episodes of The Simpsons is “Season of 4 ft 2” which tells the story of the Simpsons family taking a summer vacation to the lake. Lisa, who’s usually an outcast nerd, ends up befriending a group of cool kids while Bart, who normally has a large circle of friends, is […]

Saturday Snap – Autumn Falls

Fun to play in but fallen leaves are also a sad reminder the summer’s coming to an end. 🙁

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Heading To Our Seasonal Site (May 2017)

This one doesn’t reach too far back but given that summer’s (too) quickly coming to an end, I thought I’d post a selfie Shea took of us on our way out to our seasonal campsite in mid-May (and yes, I think our daughter might’ve been buried under some pillows since our van was so full!)

I Can’t Decide If I Should Feel Guilty About Missing So Many of My Daily Blog Posts Due to Camping

Nah… 😉

Camping Injury Report

Camping is a strange thing – you pay a lot of money to basically live in the wilderness with all the attendant dangers and risks. This summer, we’ve had a few… Pace hit himself in the face with a metal scooter while attempting a trick, cutting his face, giving himself a fat lip and loosening […]

Music Monday – “From nine till five I have to spend my time at work/The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk/The only thing that helps me pass the time away/Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day.”

Another unofficial theme for our seasonal camp site at Echo Valley Campground, especially after last weekend when we hit Echo Beach a couple times… “Echo Beach” – Martha and the Muffins

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Our First Visit to Echo Valley Provincial Park (June 2015)

Before we had our seasonal site there, we stayed at Echo Valley for a weekend in June 2015. We had a site backing right onto the main playground, only steps from where our seasonal site is now (I often sit in our seasonal site and look over diagonally at the ever-changing nightly campers staying in […]
