road trip haliburton part 1

pooch special k and i went on a camping trip to  haliburton ontario.  this is a very popular destination in ontario as it is very beautiful

the map shows part of the journey.  i think it was 5-6 hours to drive.

yes.... it says git R done on the back window

this was an interesting moment...  we were all about stopping at little shops checking for cool stuff; maybe some wild blueberries
a sign on the side of the road says store ahead... open
so we go in ... and it smells so musty, like it just opened that day from being boarded shut for 10 years
this dude and a pregnant woman sitting on the porch
 almost like a scene from deliverance....  but they were SO friendly.  it was just a bit bizarre
we bought a coke and a ginger ale for our mix for later 

this was our little shack.  it was awesome.  better than a tent

high luxury for a camping trip

we rescued the fork from the flames

the view from our campsite.  the lake is beyond the trees at the bottom

peace and groovy happenings

special k 's special breakfast

  5. Hey Pooch
    I think I would prefer this cabin to camping in a tent.... and looks like beautiful countryside there...

    Mr Deliverance cracked me up... I think I would find it a bit bizarre too.. Imagine waking up to him each morning.. haha.. Have a great weekend.. and love the wilderness pics.. xxx Julie
