Hello my Minions, so nice to see you again! Sorry for the long break between posts! Two things have happened – one, summer has happened and with no school I am busier, the pool calls, camp beckons and the computer gets ignored. At least until it doesn’t work. We had problems that resulted in no internet connection for over two weeks. Thanks to Joey, and everyone else who offered an opinion, the issue has been resolved and we are back in the land of the connected. I hope you have all been having a wonderful summer in the mean time.
Just before the computer went on vacation we at Joey’s House did. We camped at Long Point Provincial Park for 5 days. It was rainy, windy and buggy! A word of warning to anyone considering heading that way next year – according to one of the lovely park staff August is sand fly season. We all came back very chewed up – especially Punky and Juno. The beach there is awesome though, and the water very shallow for a good ways out. We had some calm days and some rough water days, both of which are fun for different reasons. The day we arrived was warm and the waves were crashing in an adjust-your-bathing-suit after each wave kind of way. Juno learned to jump waves too, after overcoming an initial mistrust in them. We had good food, and enjoyed some relaxation time as Punky ran wild with a gaggle of other kids that were staying at nearby sites. If we could have avoided the bugs and the crazy rainstorms (they make for a very poor night’s sleep when you’re in a tent) it would have been perfect! I may have taken just a few pictures, have a look!
If you looked left from our campsite you saw this – that bit of blue is Lake Erie!
There has been some knitting going on as well – but that’s another post.
