My Mom looks after one of our neighbours houses while He is away on business (which happens somewhat frequently), and his place has the most gorgeous garden I've ever seen. The flowers grow insanely tall, and it just has this magical feeling about it. My Mom and I were there this past week feeding the horses when this huge, insanely bright rainbow formed. We were both so excited, running around from place to place trying to see it better. It was a full, complete arc that was brighter than I've ever seen a rainbow before, and in the distance of one of the fields you could clearly see where it ended. I snapped these photos, but it had already started to fade. I swear, this garden is enchanted!
Sunset missions are what summer is made for. I've lived near/in Ottawa for the majority of my life, and I'm still discovering cool new places to check out. This is Prince of Wales Bridge, an old rail bridge connecting Ottawa, Ontario to Gatineau, Quebec. its been out of service for many, many years, as you can see by the overgrowth. A really cool spot to watch the sun set!
I went camping last weekend with the boyfriend and his brother & sister in law in Algonquin park! I totally didn't realize that my air mattress needed a pump, and it rained a fair bit, but overall it was a successful camping trip! Nobody fell off the edge of a canyon or went hungry, haha. Next time I am definitely adding air mattress pump and after-bite to my packing list, though....I fear I will never stop itching! Other than the obvious necessities, what do you always bring camping with you that makes your life easier? I'm slowly adding things to my camping gear...this year I bought an air mattress and camp chairs, but Its interesting to hear what other people consider to be life-changers!
