We are not fond of long drives and I’ve often wanted to stop in at Driftwood Provincial Park. It is such a romantic name.
We managed to get a site and back in nicely along the waterfront. I would have preferred more sun as we weren’t plugged in and the night time temperatures were getting cooler, but, we know that we can comfortably survive a couple of days with limited solar. We just need to be careful about our power usage.
It was a shallow area in front of our campsite and I thought I would try fishing.
My fishing sense is lacking is my guess. It was warm in the water, but still no fish. I tried various lures and found a worm or two without success.
The view was beautiful and as we were in a primarily tent area, it was quiet and peaceful.
Hector seems to like laying on his cot rather than the ground. I think as a Southern US dog he is used to warmth more than cool Ontario fall weather.
It was so much fun heating the popcorn on the fire. I had to watch my hair as I bent over the flames to shuffle to basket. The top of the pan grew and the popcorn popped. It wasn’t as good as I remember it, but then we have become used to covering popcorn in butter and salt.
We didn’t find anything about this boat and it looked like they were refurbishing it, but with COVID-19 that project must have fallen apart.
We made it home and it was time for a little change.
The rich red of the living room was wonderful for a few years, but it was time to change it to a lighter colour.
All done and the next two rooms also done. Time for a little hiking.
We started to feel cooped up and after all the hard work a hike in Gatineau seemed like a good idea.
Hiking was a good transition from camping and it felt good to be outdoors. Since the restrictions eased quite a bit we were able to meet up with neighbours.
The fall cooking started and we hoped for some sunny days to get a last camping trip or at least a good hike in before winter.
