Eric had made his miles, and I had arranged for a few days off. So, with a desire to go camping, we headed on a mini vacation. I found a cabin available on Plato Island near Quesnel Lake. It was a little farther away than we anticipated. The marker on google maps is wrong (which led us to someones private property, an hour detour from where we were supposed to be)'
I figure, I'm too old to camp, basically, i just don't want to deal with that bullshit of rain, setting up camp. The cabin had a fridge, electricity from 8am - 10pm, and a toilet! It was a great little set up. Our puppy made some friends with another toy poodle, and two other dogs down by the river, and so did we! It was nice to be out of cell reception, and be undistracted.
We tried to teach our puppy how to swim. He didn't really go for it. I think it was too cold and the lake was too cold, and overall unpleasent. He did decide that he liked to dig in the sand! Eric, though, kept his feet in the water the hole time. Too bad the bugs were still bad even though it was noon and bright and sunny!
