A Truly Divine Weekend
We just got home from a wonderful camping trip.
The drive was much further then we wanted to go, but our friends who we were going camping with picked the site and we said we didn’t care where we went. So, really, we had no right to complain.
But, I will admit Mr. MPB and I did complain on the drive – multiple hours with a toddler in the backseat was a tad bit challenging at times. But, the second we arrived, we realized why they picked this location. It was absolutely stunning and completely worth the drive!
The campground consisted of 2 campsites – we shared one with our friends, and the other one sat empty the entire time we were there. Which meant we had the entire lake to ourselves! And the campground was well maintained, which is always a bonus!
This was our view when we woke up in the morning until we went to bed at night:
With the exception of baby and toddler noises, the only things we heard were the sound of a soft breeze blowing through the trees and the calls from the a family of loons that made their home the lake. It was truly divine.
Yet, I brought my computer with me on this camping trip (which I never do) as I am currently behind on 2 projects and have 2 critical deadlines this week. But you know what, I didn’t turn it on once! And we were outside of cell phone reception so I couldn’t even check emails or connect with civilization in anyway. This is exactly what I needed. So, instead of working we:
- chased Little MPB around as he explored nature in the beautiful sunshine;
- took Little MPB swimming in a crystal clear mountain lake;
- watched Little MPB play with (i.e. steal toys and food from) our friends 10 month old baby; and,
- stayed up late chatting the evenings away.
Now that I’m home and back at my desk, I have to admit, the mountain air is calling my name. I must find a way to get back to this beautiful spot.
