Hi everyone, we are back from our relaxing 4 day camping holiday. What great weather we had, sunny and hot every day. We stayed at our now favorite camping site in Georgian bay Craigleith Provincial Camping site. We enjoyed biking, Kayaking and swimming in the beautiful clear Georgian Bay waters. It was the first camping trip with our new truck Brutus what a comfortable ride it is lots of room packed with everything we needed. pulling our trailer was a dream, so easy it didn’t chug like our small Jeep did.
Even though its great going camping I always come back tired, you don’t always get the best sleep, I’m happy to be back to my King Size bed. I guess that’s because we still only have the pop up trailer and it’s bed isn’t the best. I think we are going to start viewing used full sized trailers soon so we can buy the best deal. We’d like to spend a lot more time camping so a bigger trailer is needed with all the comforts. Since my body was feeling tired I needed a well deserved green smoothie and this Popeye’s green carrot and spinach smoothie filled the bill. This smoothie is definitely green tasting, not your usual fruity one.
