Last week we had such a great time camping. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, the lake was beautiful and our campsite had an amazing view of the sunset each evening. Oh, and there were almost zero mosquitoes. Can it really get any better than that?
This was our first camping trip of the year (another one to come in a few weeks), we went with Jared’s parents and sister, they had a camper and we had our tent. We were there for nearly a week (five nights), and I thought it was the perfect amount of time to do everything that we wanted to.
But, despite my best efforts, I was still unable to catch a fish. One evening we went out fishing and within 15 minutes this old man next to us caught two fish! So I started watching him out of the corner of my eye. I used the same hook as him, observed his cast, copied his speed when reeling in . . . but alas, it was not meant to be. He went to his campsite to eat fish and we went without.
Now excuse me while I overload you with photos. 🙂

can you see our tent there in the dark?
this is her “sandman”, his name is Olaf 🙂
oh look, more ballerina photos!
contrary to how it may look, she does have two arms. she is just very proud of her cast here.
not so proud of her catch though.
It was a great week and I can’t wait to go camping again.
Are you a camper? What is your favorite thing to do when you go?
And most importantly: have you caught a fish before?!
LORRAINE @ THIS PILGRIM’S PROGRESS
Lorraine blogs over at This Pilgrim’s Progress and I first have to give her a huge shout out as a fellow Canadian. Not only is she a Canadian but she is living in my favorite province, British Columbia, plus she is a fantastic photographer and always sharing gorgeous photos of her beautiful province. In addition to taking amazing photos she is also a brilliant writer, I love her deep and powerful posts, like her recent one on the fear of rejection and her older one about pain in the journey. She is a blogger that you must check out, stop by and say hi to her!
