Follow the Sun

I thought I may try something a little different here. This last unexpected trip was so breathtaking that I honestly don’t have too much to say about it. I’m only sad for you that the pictures will never do this place justice.

After the last post I wrote, about not having anything to do over the long weekend I was contacted by who was in the same boat. (Oh gosh no pun intended… That was kind of lame.)

Anywho, we devised a plan to camp on Crown land because neither one of us seemed to want to camp in a crowded park.

Christina turned out to be so much fun and so knowledgeable and so amazing, strong, and independent. I definitely learned so much from her!  I’m so glad that the weekend worked out the way that it did and we had the chance to get away.

We went in through Killbear Park and we paddled a good 14 kilometers out on Georgian Bay to check out all the islands before finally settling on the perfect spot. The place was so beautiful it might have ruined me for camping anywhere else.

As we were paddling back on the last day, we were having a discussion about which way we should be going. We were both saying different things but aiming for the same spot and when we looked off in the distance, that particular spot was right below where the sun was shining. You could see rays beaming down on Killbear Park. I forget who it was but someone said, “Well… just follow the sun.” That’s when I said, “Oh that’s a really great song!” Christina asked me to hum it and for the life of me I couldn’t remember a single word except of course, ‘Follow the Sun’.

Hopefully it was worth the wait… without further adieu…

  1. That was beautiful. I have so much to say but it wouldn’t do these images justice.

    You both are great role models, I enjoy sharing these adventures with my daughter so she knows how independent and strong women can be and are.

    It’s a bonus that she gets to see how beautiful a province we live in.

    I hope to one day see this place for myself…until then, thank you for sharing.

  2. That would be something! Just afraid of how much gear that would be needed… No excuses, just warning that I would require a lot of assistance šŸ˜Š.

    It would be an amazing experience though!

    This is how I know you’re a brave person, just thinking about possibly making a trip like this, even with a group, is making me a bit anxious.šŸ¤’

    1. Haha! You’d be surprised how much gear you don’t need! And how many things these days pack up super small! I have a winter jacket that packs down to the size of a football šŸ™‚ Having said that, I still have a difficult time standing up with my full pack on lol. But it’s always an adventure!
