Aside from the water traffic with bad taste in music, it was a fun and relaxing weekend with my sweetheart. The site we had was extremely small and the only place for the tent was on what was basically a gravel driveway, but with our sleeping mats and Rex and Mo's winter sleeping bag underneath us (very plush) we slept alright. On Saturday morning we walked along the banks of Beaver Lake to try to reach a beach that was actually pretty far away. At first we had a sand bar to walk along but that quickly gave way to just rocks, and then just reeds, so we walked in the water for a while
We played some ukulele, read our books and cooked some kabobs over the fire for the rest of the afternoon, and then made friends with our neighbour's dog, an 8 month old border collie mixed breed named Farrah. The first night we were there, she wasn't there our neighbours were a young couple that we thought were pretty cute and uncomfortable around each other. Then the next day, they had their friends come, an older guy who brought Farrah and another younger fella, maybe 19? It was a weird mix of people and we couldn't figure out how they all knew each other. Our campsites were so close that we could hear all of their conversations, it's not like we were listening in! What are we, some kind of weird camp listeners? Anyway, we never figured it out. It bugs us to this day (2 days later).
We're in Edmonton now and will be heading down to the Hat on Wednesday. Regards,
