Just came back and thought I'd post a bit about my vacation. It was just what I needed to gather some strength and peace in order to face my ordeal next week. (see last post) I love this place. One can be so in touch with nature and its creator. It is a great place to pray if you do that or just communicate your thankfulness for all your blessings to the universe while trying to absorb some of its energy.
We drive 6 hours to get to this point and then it takes 1 1/2 hours to drive 26 km on really rough logging roads. They were worse this year because of all the rain and there were ruts on both sides of the road to negotiate.
You can count on running into a few tress or logs across the road and we always bring a chainsaw.
The cook camp where we eat and actually have indoor facilities! PINK toilet and sink!! So we don't really rough it that much.
Just like a pioneer kitchen. It is so handy to have all the pots and pans hanging and the cupboards open.
The sleep camp where we all have our own little beds. And a great wood stove to keep us toasty on cool nights and mornings! Only a few fishing cabins around and this year no one was using them...ultimate quiet!
These hills are part of The Laurentian Mountains of Quebec.
Dave caught a pretty big pike which was really hanging on by his teeth to the little pickerel he had caught first!
A perfect evening for fishing! I never tire of this vista at sunset.... My sisters with me in the middle...and Dave...up in the bush with three crazy ladies! Poor guy!! Me, drenched after being out in a thunderstorm! Till next year.....
I wish I could bottle that place and the feeling I get from being there to use throughout the year so I could de-stress and completely chill. I'm going to have to look at these pictures a lot and pretend!
Mother of Invention, trying to stay relaxed and chilled....
