My family took a vacation every summer in Killarney Park or Georgian Bay, canoeing out to remote camping spots, cooking food over a fire, and swimming in crystal clear water. Two years ago I spent four nights doing the most intense canoe trip in Algonquin Park that I’ve ever done. I haven’t been canoeing since, and won’t be able to this summer either. I miss it, and photos like these from old chum remind me of how much I love it.
The next instalment in our road trip travel journal, featuring the amazing drive on HWY 1 between San Francisco and LA.
july 13, 14 & 15
We had five days in between the Renegade shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles. During that time we had both heavenly and hellish experiences. The drive along highway 1 was breathtaking. The winding roads high up on the cliffs were remarkable. The colours of the plants on the side of the road.
The first place we stayed was up a mountain, high above the clouds, on a secret campsite. We drank beer and took time lapse photos drawing pictures with a burning stick. We collected pinecones as long as your forearm. We should have just stayed there the whole week, but instead decided that camping on a beach would be more fun. Where we ended up was Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. We were attracted to the $5 a night fee and the fact that you could drive on the beach. We didn’t realize that “vehicular recreation area” meant hundreds of dune buggies, jeeps, and ATVs roaring past our tent until 3 in the morning. Not very relaxing.
