We returned last night from our family vacation. We try and get away around Canada Day to kick off the summer and relax after the crazy month of June. This year was extra special for me. We went to a place that I have not been in 20 years. It is a place that I grew up at and holds so many special memories for me. It was great because now I have some special memories with my family. Growing up my grandparents owned a fishing camp - Camp Mac Mac on Lake Nipissing. Each year since the time I was 1 my family would go there each year for 1 week and then when I turned 10 I spent every summer up there working with my grandparents. It played such a big role when I was growing up because I moved around alot when I was a kid, this was the one spot that was a constant in my life. It is a totally rustic and isolated spot. You have to take a boat - the Lady Mac for 45 minutes to get to the camp. The cottages have running cold water and indoor plumbing and fridges but you cook your food on a wood stove or coleman. The beach is beautiful and fun for the kids with great sand bars. The fishing is good and the landscape is truly breathtaking. Words can't describe my experience. It was a very emotional trip for me because I was remembering so much about my grandfather and the amazing person he was. The kids had fun and Andy had fun. I think that we are going to make this an annual trip. Can't wait till next year!
