I had not been fishing with my dad since I was about 5 or so when I lost my plastic fishing rod to Greenbough Lake.  It was a traumatic experience for me and I was heartbroken. I loved that little plastic fishing rod and the cute colored fish that came with it.  With no other options, I went back into the bow of the boat with my coloring book and wrote off fishing for many [...]

I woke up Sunday with no plans at all. Such an odd thing for me!   I have been striving to find some small rivers and creeks to paddle in since moving to Port Carling.  It's been a hard search as most of the lakes in my area are very big and full of motor boats and cottages.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I like to paddle on calm small waters, still [...]

My dad provided me with the perfect word to describe the last few weeks, bittersweet.    It seems no matter how good something is, there is almost always something bad that goes along with it.

If someone had told me a year ago that I would go winter camping, or glamping, in this case, I would've said they were crazy.  Up until this year, it has never crossed my mind to even attempt adventuring in the snow, and now I have done it and am actually even camping in a tent for my next two trips!  Being in nature in the snow is truly magical and I now understand why [...]
