The long week-end that we got married, we slept in a tent in my Mum’s front yard. Space was at a premium and we wanted to test out our new tent that we had bought to backpack around Europe. 20 years later, we still camp every May long week-end.
Most of those long week-ends have been spent with close friends of ours from down island, which makes the tradition even more special. There is an ease when camping with people you are so familiar with, and with whom you have set up many campsites.
We also try to change up the campgrounds, finding new to us places every few years. This year we went to Little Qualicum Falls Provincial Park. A beautiful park where we enjoyed the walking trails, the campground amenities (flush toilets oh my!), and the beautiful falls.
A week-end of talking, walking, geocaching, ice cream and shopping, campfires, storybook reading, laughter and relaxation. Good times.
