Day 1: The first stars

Well we got everything for 6 people the car and you can still see out the back window. I’d say that’s a win.

Somewhere between Montreal and Ottawa

We crossed the Quebec-Ontario border before dinner. But we had left a bit late and only got to the campground at around 10.

Sunset in Ontario

We saw our first stars from the car, just as the tree line started changing from Southern Ontario to Central Ontario.

Somewhere past Petawawa

My older kids have been camping with their scout group but this was a first for my 5-year-old.

We stayed at Driftwood Bay Provincial Park. There were lots of empty sites so it was pretty quiet. Also, they have laundry which is a bit posh for camping. And chipmunks.

We had the whole site set up in about 20 minutes, in the dark. (I will blog about how much I love my tent soon. )

Then bed. It was a clear night and you could see the stars through the roof of the tent.

There were some pretty big mosquitoes. Not everyone was ok with that.

Kid #3: Where are we going next?

Me: North Bay.

Kid # 3: Do they have hotels there?

Total distance so far: 570 km

Four pairs of boots

  1. I remember travelling(around 2 years ago). around 480 km of travelling through the hills, plains, of Nepal, clicking photographs. Travelling is fun.

    Coming to your post, Ottawa River seems very big and beautiful. Have fun. 🙂
