Why not start with something uncomplicated and relaxing…. camping. For the past 2 years, I’ve felt brave enough on 2 seperate occasions, and have joined friends in some weekend camping. This year, the group is quite small, but we still had fun, and even had visit on the second day.
Here it is, our home away from home. Nothing too fancy, but perfect for us. Many Thanks to KE who was nice enough to let us use her tent.
The campsite is a local one, but what I liked best was the fact that I could “walk” in the water, not worrying about losing my footing. I don’t know how to swim very well, and my idea of a great swimming spot is to have a foothold on the bottom at all times.
The greatest challenge for all first-time campers, as well as dog owners, is to keep your dogs quiet at night. To my great suprise, Fannie the puppy is a good dog when it comes to that. Jasmine is the naughty one, but with a lot of work, she has learned to keep quiet. Actually, she was the first one to go in the tent at night, and go to sleep. I took this picture of her just before turning off the light. Needless to say she was not impressed having her picture taken so late at night…. : )
This weekend was also a great opportunity for Fannie to get to know my friends’ dogs. Here she is, trying to snuggle up to LR’s Walter, a german sheperd cross. Usually, he would shy away, as he doesn’t know her as much as Jasmine. That evening however, he was so tired, he didn’t care…
