I am currently at my favourite campground (Clear Lake, Manitoba), camping with about 10 of my closest friends.  More specifically, I am currently sitting at a table here:

This is the Internet cafe, bookstore, clothing store, called The Gorge.

After this post I will be heading back to the campsite:

Probably to sit around the fire, but possibly to play bumper hammocks in what we like to call "Hammock-ville".

Or maybe I will cook something up in our handy cooking area:


Or sip a drink which I might keep in a make-shift, duct tape drink holder:


Whatever I choose to do at the campsite, it will be awesome.  Because camping is awesome.  And by awesome, I mean super awesome.

My breakfasts have been almost as good as those cooked at home.

Exhibit A:

Home Breakfast:

Camping Breakfast:

Of course, egg in a hole has made an appearance ...

And other regular types of camping food ...


And camping wouldn't be camping without card games and munchies in the afternoon:

How is your week going so far?  Have you been camping this summer?

Looks so fun! I am not a big camper, but I think I would like what you've got set up there!

I want a hammock party! How awesome is that!!
I haven't been camping this summer :( but it's all good - other fun stuff going on! ;)

Hope you are enjoying your summer!

Why am I here??? said...

Jealous!! I'm going on a trip with my lover because we are certainly in need of a vacation for just the two of us.

Oh my gosh,that looks like so much fun! I love the hammocks. What a great location to go camping!

My week has been pretty good so far. It's going fast which is good as I am already ready for the weekend, even though it's only Tuesday!

Funnn! I love that their is 10 of you all camping together! I just went camping last weekend (and blogged about it today) and had SO MUCH FUN. It was a lot of work for 2 nights though so next time we're going for 4-5 nights!

I love camping but didn't go at all this summer because I didn't think to reserve a place in advance. Such a bummer.

I'm so envious, can't believe I've only made it out to the lake once this year! Summer's always a crazy whirlwind. And given the whole camping thing, those are some damn fine meals! It's been years since I've actually camped (and not just cheated by staying in a cabin). Maybe next year!
