First of all it was the last day of school on Friday so I got the obligatory last day photos. Our usual photo place is inaccessible so you can’t see the progression on the light switch, but you can tell they have grown.
The boys went to school for half a day and then we picked them up so we could hit the road for camping. We were trying out a new campground this year, Killbear (a very popular one on Georgian Bay), and that meant we would not be passing by Weber’s, which is one of our favourite traditions. We decided to go that way anyway and then cut across to Killbear, it added a half hour to our drive, but worth it!!
This year there was a campfire ban, given all of the recent and current forest fires, so that was too bad. We thought that given the rain, and that campgrounds have controlled fire pits and are constantly monitored, they should make an exception for provincial parks, but it was not to be. We definitely missed this aspect of camping.
We got everything set up and were in no hurry to get supper ready since we had eaten late at Webers. After our friends arrived, we took a stroll down to the beach. It was a beautiful night and everyone went swimming (but not me, I did not feel like changing into my suit).
This is “the most photographed tree in Canada” apparently. I thought it looked like something the Group of Seven would have painted. One person said “Tom Thomson would have loved this tree” but I don’t see that he actually painted it.
