A Walk on the Wildside for Mosiac Monday

My husband (the pond boy) and I just came back from vacation.  We had 7 days away in our little pop up camper in Lake Superior Provincial Park-Agawa Campground with two days in the Chutes Provinicial Park.  We had a rest from the cell phone, the internet, the newspapers, the 6 o'clock news.  Just listening to the birds in the morning with a cup of coffee. We walked a lot (the bathroom is a block away) and we climbed all the trails (I have blisters to prove it), saw some amazing sunsets, went swimming in cold water, picked blueberries right at the side of the road and read three books.  Came back to grass as high as a wheat field and weeds in the flowerbeds and racoons that ate my tomatoes.  Such is life.

Thanks to Mary at DearLittleRedHouse for hosting Mosiac Monday.   Come see what else is happening out there.    Happy Gardening.  Valerie

A week of rest is often needed to refresh and it sounds like you did just that Val.
However, back to reality. :-)

I am not a happy camper but it sounds like you had a good time. There is so much to see in our beautiful country.

Looks like a wonderful time away from everything! At least your tomatoes didn't go to waste! ;D Welcome home.

I had to laugh when I saw the beach shoes in your mosaic - they're an awful lot like the ones in mine!
I'm glad to hear that you had a good time - blisters and all.

Sounds like a heavenly break ... couldn't think of anything better than sitting back with a morning cuppa listening to birdsong!
Beautiful mosaic ... the blueberries look delicious!

Valerie that sounds like my kind of holiday despite the blisters and the racoons. Lovely mosiac too.

That is such a gorgeous park to camp in. We were there a few years ago. Did you take the Agawa Canyon train ride?

Love the mosaic. You've captured a bit of everything needed for time away, well spent.

Now that sounds like a heavenly restful vacation! So many books, so little time. Ahhhhh. It's so funny to see this big ol' toad living in my little water tub!

Nice group of shots on a relaxing getaway away from the grind (my challenge word) of everyday life.

It sounds like you had a nice, relaxing time. My husband and I rarely go anywhere. We did have a nice 2 week vacation in June of 2007. We drove from Nebraska to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. When we get our kitchen remodel paid for, we'd like to go to the west coast.
