Made it Back Alive…

…But just barely. Camping was hard and beautiful and itchy and wonderful all at once. The 4 hours of canoing to our campsite island was probably the hardest part. The wild berry foraging was very good. I gleaned some new bits of knowledge about growing blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries from the experience.

I have lots to share but also lots of email to attend to. More soon when I get it together.

The above photos were taken from the farthest outcropping of rocks from our campsite. What I’ve assembled is a bit confusing, vaguely representing a 360 view from that rock. Our campsite is hidden in this photo but was located to the right of the middle trees.

  2. Beautiful! Did you go to Lake Charleston Provincial Park, perchance? Amazing canoe-in primitive campsites on small granite islands there…

    Kelly: Getting a bunch of film back today. just gotta find the time to scan it. I have a large backlog.

  4. Wow, camping is so much fun, I haven’t gone in so long, your pics really make me wanna go! And canoeing sounds like fun too! Can’t wait to hear about the raspberries and such :D
