We’re back from our fall camping trip, my friends. Feeling refreshed, restored, and at least mentally healthier. Physically, well, too many marshmallows, more butter tarts than are good for us, and too many hours spent reading instead of biking or walking mean we have to climb back on the fitness and healthy-eating bandwagon. Pretty darned quick. Ha.
We had five beautiful crisp fall nights. Crisp nights are the best thing about fall camping. Crisp nights mean great campfires. Great for sipping wine and listening to a CD that our friend Jo Barkley-Probst gave us. Jo is a golfing buddy of Hubby’s, and he’s a great musician. I wish that I’d been able to make his CD the soundtrack for my video, but sadly I don’t know how to do that yet. Still, you can enjoy some clips of his music on the video.
We didn’t spend all week sitting on our behinds, though. We went for a couple of wonderful walks, and a great drive down some country roads. And we saw some sights that, even though we’ve been coming to this area for decades, were new to us.
You can check out the history of this Ottawa Valley gem here if you like. We’ve driven through Rockingham a few times on our meanderings, and we don’t know how we’ve managed to miss this wonderful little church until now.
So pour yourself a cup of tea and have a look at the video below. I tried to include a sampling of what we got up to, up the valley, on our fall camping trip this past week.
That’s it for me today, folks. I have a mountain of laundry to do this weekend. And then it’s all about planning the rest of my fall shopping. I have added a couple of things to my fall wish list. Sigh. It was ever thus. I have to stop perusing Pinterest when I’m on my exercise bike.
What have you been up to this week?
