As I Explore this land

As I explore this land,

I realize that it’s a very big span.

With trees, water, mountains and more,

I realize as I hear the timber wolf roar.

Faraway in the distant world of wilderness and wonder,

That I would soon explore, sun or thunder.

But then after I stand here in the city,

I stand here in dismay.

As I look around and see no wilderness in sight.

We had a fabulous time at kejimkujik!  Their is so much to talk about but lets start with our epic bike ride to the……visitor center? At first we were excited but we were GRUMPY & ANGRY when we found out that it was at least 10 km just to get there. To make things worse Midas hurt his paw and had to walk the whole way home with Mom.

There were still a lot of ups in the park starting with making my two new friends Sam and Jo...

My Bothersome Brother

I have a crazy bothersome brother.

I am relieved I don’t have another,

Crazy bothersome brother.

I sit in the car as he yabbers away,

Like he does every other day, of my loud life.

P.S. Just kidding

P.P.S. No I’m not!!


Crack, Snap, Pop!

Fires are hot.

I thought as I listened to that big fire pop.

They burn everything in their path.

I reminded myself as I hesitated to throw a big wood in.

I was amazed as that fire...

Today was a very special day. Mom and Dad said that I had been so good on this trip that I would get a day totally focused on me. YAY! We began our day visiting Awenda Park, on Georgian Bay. I got to go swimming and play on the beach with Midas and my sisters. Georgian Bay is tons of fun. After our sunny morning at Awenda Park everyone looked super excited. They had a surprise planned for me. My Nana has a very good friend who...

I really liked Sleeping Giant! I thought it was cool that they actually had a legend behind the parks name. The legend explains how a native chief was protecting his silver from the white man and wished them dead. As punishment the native gods put him asleep on top of his silver protecting it forever. It was fascinating to see the silhouette of rocks that looked like a giant off in the distance.

We also hiked on a cool trail ca...

The Wilderness

Beautiful and strange at the same time thought the fisherman as a fish nibbled on his line.

“Why somebody would be so foolish to try and tame the wild sea”,  he said as he set that fish free.

He sat on the dock and let the wet waves tickle his toes.

How to tame the wild nobody knows.

Pizza is a Beanie Boo.

One day I lost Pizza.  I was so scared that I lost Pizza and we had to leave our camp site that day.  I thought for sure that I had left Pizza in at camp site somewhere.  One day past, two days past and three days past….no Pizza.  On the third day we got our laundry back so we looked in the laundry bag.  Pizza was in it, with all of the clothes that got washed.  The night before I found Pizza, mom got me...

We had a lot of fun at the Narcisse Snake Dens. Although, at first I was afraid to get out of the car. Once Mom convinced us that garter snakes don’t bite, we were on our way. We had four dens to visit…

At the first den my siblings and I shrieked at the mere site of a snake and I’m telling you, it was even worse when we found one in the middle of the pathway. To tease us, mom picked up the snake and tried to get us to hold it....

I HATE ticks. They are GROSS! The only place you can get a tick remover is at the pet vet. The GROSS GROSS ticks!

With our new friends they showed us a tree house. We gathered leaves we put them in the cracks. It was a shelter. We played in it. We built it. It was fun. I will miss it.
