Today I Will Be Happier Than A Seagull With A French Fry

Last weekend Aiden and I went camping for three days in Killbear Park. It was one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen. We basked in the sunshine, scampered over rocks in our bare feet, saw baby foxes, and deer, and tadpoles, and frogs, and even a snake. Some highlights include a deer walking through our camp site, finding our own private island and grilling prawns there for lunch, followed by sunning ourselves and having a quickie right out in the open in broad daylight. There was also slow-dancing under the stars (thank you iPod portable speakers) and drinking our coffee on the beach every morning. My new tent was the cat’s ass, and kept us warm and dry. It’s the perfect size for a queen air mattress and a couple of backpacks.

We hiked every day, completing around 12 kms (or 7.5 miles) worth of trails by the end of our trip. The hiking grill and firebowl I bought some months back worked out extremely well. We found remote rocks, right on the water, where we could cook our meal and enjoy a beer, without another soul in sight. I wish I had known about Killbear months ago, as I am certain that Jack and the kids would have had a ball there with us. It would have been lovely to have all gone together.
Over the course of the weekend we took over 400 photos, and on Monday I compiled the 200 best ones into a DVD slide-show set to music that we listed to during the trip. Out of those 200, I’ve selected some of my favorites to include in this post, enjoy!
