Some of the blogs I admire the most are filled with a mix of family, photos, hobbies, photos, links to cool things, photos, and knitting (which just naturally has spectacular photos). So that will be what this blog is all about.
Please feel free to leave a comment, I love comments!
This is the Lake of Prairies in Manitoba. We camped along the south side of it at Asessippi Provincial Park. What a great campground, totally spacious, clean and so very pretty. As a bonus, it's only about 4 hours away from home.
Later in the afternoon we went to the local ski hill (Yup an oxymoron if there ever was one! A ski hill in the prairies, but really, it's a very cute hill. Perfect for learners and those who can't get to the big hills in BC). We didn't go to admire the trees and runs in the summer sun though, no, we went to inquire about renting kayaks! I love kayaking! In fact I'm squirreling away money for my very own kayak!
We got two, put Sam with me and off we went down the river. I kind of wish I had some experience on moving water before this, but it was an adventure! Sam and I were pretty nervous at first, but after watching Brent flip (twice! and he got stung by a bee! Poor guy!) we both mellowed, and by then so had the river.
We finished up the day BBQing hamburgers and eating watermelon. I knit by the campfire that night and listened to the birds settle in the trees. It was a great day!
