The May long week-end almost always marks our first camping trip of the season. It is also almost always spent camping with some of our favourite people (including our favourite baby this time!). This year was no exception. We decided to revisit Gabriola Island, a favourite destination from years ago when my mum lived there.
Not a bad place to spend a week-end. We had a night and most of a day there on our own, and we relaxed and explored in between rain showers (few and far between). Our first night I asked Bushboy how he felt to be camping again:
Descanso Bay is a lovely campground, and although it was full it wasn’t too noisy or crowded. And the bay itself is quite picturesque!
The next two days were spent exploring and reminiscing, beach combing, baby playing, visiting, camp firing and generally getting the most out of our first trip of the season.
I love the sandstone rock that makes up so many of our Gulf Islands. It is not as common on our central and northern Vancouver Island beaches. Bushboy enjoyed the many holes and ‘caves’ (just like I did when I was a girl exploring sandstone beaches!).
All in all a wonderful trip.
(The significance of the location and the sundial to be explained tomorrow….)
