We had our first campout of the season at the end of May. Around these parts it's still a little early to camp since it can (and did) get below freezing temps at night. We used a ceramic space heater to keep Eggie (our '76 Boler) warm and brought all the jackets and camp blankets we could pack. It was perfectly cozy in there, all cuddled up together watching The Green Slime on the tiny TV we picked up for just this kind of thing.
The cool evenings and early mornings aside, it was a wonderful start to the camping season ( just think, no bugs ). We kicked it off at our absolutely favourite campground in Northwestern Ontario's Blue Lake Provincial Park. We had the park to ourselves at one point, which was so strange feeling since it's such a popular spot in high season. Without a cloud in the sky, we even had a few hours to shed sweaters. Eve took it a step further . . . crazy kid.
The boreal forrest of the Canadian Shield is a magical place which attracts visitors worldwide. It's no wonder why. Hundreds of freshwater lakes to boat, swim and fish in, plentiful wildlife and lush trails to explore. Blue Lake is so clear that you can see the bottom several meters down. It's gorgeous! Truly a paradise.
I'm so glad summer is almost here!
