After many weeks of counting the days, it is finally almost here. Tomorrow I am heading out on a 6 day, 5 night camping trip with my sisters. We’re going to be staying in a “rustic shelter” at a Provincial Park, in New Brunswick. This is our 5th year of what has become an annual event; a way to get away for 6 glorious days, from husbands, kids, worries and responsibilities!
When I say rustic shelter. I do mean rustic. It is basically a 14′ x 14′ wood frame covered in a heavy-duty tarp. No electricity, no water and the bathroom is a 7 minute walk…but I couldn’t be happier!
There will be no schedule; we’ll eat leisurely meals (accompanied by wine!!) when we’re hungry, go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves when we’re tired and get up when we feel rested.
In between waking up and going to sleep we’ll spend our days swimming in the ocean, beach combing for shells, pretty little rocks and sea glass. Walking on the mud flats, hiking beautiful trails, lying on the beach… eyes closed, just listening to the activity, reading (I just downloaded to my Kobo, Left Neglected by Lisa Genova and Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson) campfires, girl talk, s’mores and afternoon naps. I can barely wait!
My fellow blogaholics will relate to my only concern, blogging withdrawal. My chest is getting tight and I’m having heart palpitations just thinking of how jammed my inbox will be…OK…deep breaths, in and out….in and out…I can do it!! If only the campground had wifi…lol..but I guess that would defeat the getting away from it all mantra!
I’ll tell you all about our fun trip when I get back!
