For those of you who know me, you know that this is my week off. It is Thursday now, and so far (except for today) I have had great weather. I started my week off at a wedding last weekend. Here I am with my date!
My significant other (Todd) was a part of the wedding party so I got the pleasure of sitting with our nephew. Let me tell ya, we had a blast! :O)
Then I went on to my cottage for two nights. My cottage is on a beautiful lake in Haliburton. Here is the lovely sunset I watched with Todd the first night here.
Some might think I would just stay up here, right?? Well, we decided to shake things up during the middle of this fine week and go camping for a couple of nights.
I know it is the end of the summer and this might not help you this year, unless you are brave (unlike me) and go fall or even scarier winter camping. I am just a summer camping person and I only like it for a day or two.
This camping trip took us to the beautiful Silent Lake about an hour and a bit away from my cottage. Here is the link; http://www.ontarioparks.com/english/sile.html
My two requirements for the camping trip were that it had to be secluded (no camp sight in the middle of a field) and no motor boats on the lake. We brought our kayaks and I really like the peacefulness of kayaking on a lake when there are no boats around.
So here it is, our home for two nights!
Here is the reason I am writing this post. To prove that camping doesn't mean you have to give up on your healthy eating plan. Here are a few things we dined on!
We grilled up some amazing veggies right over the camp fire. Todd had a steak and I brought an amazing bean salad that I had made back at the cottage.
The morning came and we sipped on some green tea. I made Todd some freshly squeezed OJ (Yes, I spoil him - he said it was the best OJ he ever had).
We also had some fresh fruit that I had cut up before hand and some eggs. (sorry, forgot to take a picture of the eggs)
We went for an amazing hike through the forest up to a lookout point that was overlooking the water.
