Good Time Had By All

campingWe're back. Did we miss anything? I heard there was a big soccer game yesterday. I'm sure I'll find something about it online.

Last year, James and I went to my favourite camping spot. This time, we went somewhere more suitable for four year olds. We headed 45 minutes west to Bronte Creek.

The rain didn't hit until we were nicely tucked away in our tent last night, so we were blessed with a couple of days of fantastic weather. In addition to traditional camping rituals like having a campfire and roasting marshmallows, Bronte Creek has a petting zoo, killer kids playgrounds, some surprisingly extensive trails and a cool old farmhouse that has been maintained in its 1899 state. I won't even mention the mammoth swimming pool, which was about as natural as a three legged dog.

On the bright side, it was only a forty-five minute drive, it was geared towards families and there was never any danger we'd be mauled by a bear. On the negative side, it was only a forty-five minute drive, it was geared towards families and there was never any danger we'd be mauled by a bear. Next year I'm eyeing Pinery, where I haven't been in fifteen years.

It was a muddy Monday morning pack up, but we had a blast. Here's the obligatory photoset.

For family camping I can highly recommend Pres Qu'ile Provincial Park. About 90 mins east of TO on the 401. About 400 campsites, good facilities, beaches, deer, forest trails (marked and otherwise), sand dunes, marshes, all on a tiny peninsula out into Lake Ontario.
