The time has come for our annual camping trip. My husband and I love camping and each year we get more and more ambitious. Well, not that we are those hiking-camping in the open-roughing it sort of campers. We have a massive tent, a blowup mattress, and a Moka espresso pot to put on the camp stove first thing in the morning after we crawl out from under the duvet (sleeping bags are for kids and cold weather.)
This year, after a quick visit with family and friends in Hartford, CT, we will spend a night in Vermont at the annual sessions of the New England Quakers before going up to Montreal and Quebec City. We camp at sites outside the city, then take the train into town to explore, eat at bistros, and buy baguettes and wine and cheese for dinner at the camp site. We will return via the New York State Adirondack Mountains where we will camp and canoe, then stop at a water park as we drive home just in time for the annual Sunbury River Festival held down the street from our house.
Don’t worry, our kitties, Emma and Wally, will be well cared for by our housemates. They are never alone.
Since relaunching this site and resuming my blogging activities, I see a lot of traffic on my blog posts (I watch Google Analytics like some people watch TV.) I’d like to hear from readers. Who are you? What are you looking for? And do you like camping? Please leave your comments below. It will be such a lovely surprise to see what you have to say when I return in two weeks. (Oh, yeah, when I camp, most of the time I am off-line–just reading and eating and hanging out, but I have scheduled some blog posts to keep you busy while I am away.)
