A Weekend Away

This past weekend found me 45 minutes from home on our river. I love it there, surrounded by nature, and the blast of the train horn every few hours day and night as it runs through the middle of camp! That was intense. I would be enjoying a nice relaxing moment and then I would hear the thunderous noise of the train and then soon the blaring horn. I was surprised how often trains would go through the camp. Despite the trains it was a wonderful weekend. I was able to relax and the kids had ample room to play.
Here are a few pictures. My camera died so I stole these from my friend's myspace page :)

This is Dan with his walking stick :) There was driftwood everywhere and Dan was able to bungee cord pieces together and make rafts for the kids. He had six kids at the river for 5 hours on Saturday while two of my friends and I rested back at camp. What a great guy!

This is a terrible picture of me but, oh well! This was the first night. We got to camp late because I am always the procrastinator and didn't pack or go shopping until after work on Thursday. Luckily Dan went down early in the day and was able to secure two sites next to each other. Thankfully I was able to get our tent up in record time despite the fact that I had no directions and hadn't used the tent in two years.

I wish I had more pictures of our perfect weekend but the two cameras that were there died. My luck with electronics seems to be very bad. My camera isn't working too well, and I think my home computer is crashing for the second time.

  1. What an amazing view... and a very large waking stick! I'm glad you had a good time, despite the trains. I'm such a fraidy-cat I would have thought deranged homeless men were hopping off the trains and headed right for my camp. You're very brave. And sane.


  2. Oh, that's just great! I hadn't even contemplated dranged homeless men...we are going back in two weeks...now I will be frightened! LOL!

    Sane and brave, you are way too kind!


  3. Looks like a wonderful weekend!
