Lake Ontario, that is. Me and Mr. P took the kayaks out for a spin this weekend, and got some camping and a nature walk as well.
We spent the weekend on Lake Ontario in New York state at Golden Hill state park. We hadn't had a chance to get out camping for quite a while. It was something we used to do quite a bit, and we are car camping masters (if you ignore our regular forgetting of key items-- flashlight, sleeping pads, matches).
It took some doing to find the tent. We own three tents between us-- one cheap two person tent I had when we got married, one pricey, high quality single person tent Mr. P brought to the marriage, and the Target special we bought for a cross crounty tent camping trip a few years ago. The Target special has disappeared, but the other cheap tent has reappeared-- huzzah! We forgot matches. We forgot tinfoil. We forgot butter for the corn. We forgot this and this and this and this. Clearly, we're out of practice. Our list of forgotten things was worse than usual.
What we remembered, though, is how much we like being outside. We got a bit of rain on the second night and in the morning, and left a bit sooner than we'd thought we might, but the first day and a half the weather was glorious. And the sunset--- whooo!
We did get those kayaks out on the lake, too.
