When the office is closed for a week, what better way to spend a week in the peak of summer than to go camping? We set off for a week to go camping around the Bruce Peninsula and made some stops along the way to see friends and some other random tourist attractions that the area along our drive had to offer.
We started off by visiting some friends at their farm near London, basking in the sun and catching up. From there we headed to The Pinery Provincial Park in Grand Bend, and it quickly became one of my favourite places I've ventured to in Ontario. We had a great swim in Lake Huron, followed by an amazing sunset.
After a great night at The Pinery, we headed to Sauble Falls Provincial Park and stayed two nights, meanwhile we took a day trip up to Bruce Peninsula Provincial Park to check out Indian Head Cove and The Grotto. The hike wasn't too challenging, and although the popular area was littered with people, it was definitely worth the trip. I couldn't believe that this was Ontario!
After a long day of walking, visiting Singing Sands Beach and a quick visit to Tobermory, we headed back to our Sauble Falls campsite for some nice camping dinner and relaxation with whiskey, including a failed fire with good looking, yet horrible campfire wood we unfortunately bought.
When night rolled around we had some fun with light painting. The moon was so bright, the long exposures made it look like it was daytime. We could see the stars beautifully, however the camera picked up more light and they unfortunately were not as visible as hoped. Believe it or not, it was actually pitch black out when I light painted 'love' in this shot. But hey, that's what a 20 second exposure will do when a full moon is just about to bloom!
After we packed up and left Sauble Falls, we had a long and beautiful drive to Tiny to meet a few friends and continue camping, and round out the week of living out of a tent and car. There, we continued living the summer dream, in the woods, without electricity. Here, we continued to take advantage of the darkness and more light painting. Two happy campers had a wonderful summer vacation.
