We had a great drive to Parry Sound, Killbear Park, set up the site, had dinner and a campfire. The girls were making adjustments to their new...totally dirty home. To add a bit more to this trip, we were potty training the girls and they were almost fully trained, so this meant 2 potties propped up against a tree waiting to be used at will...and they were.
It rained through the night, and as morning was breaking, crash - the lid of the cooler was opened by a raccoon - or so we thought. About 1/2 hr later I could hear heavy foot prints and heavy breathing.....it was a bear. The darn thing climbed up the back of our pick-up truck looking to see if he could get in. When he could not, he moved on to the neighbouring campsite and shook the car until the car alarm went off - waking up a ton of people, but not my husband....he was awake, so he says, but did not move a muscle. I told him there was a bear on our truck, but he brushed it off until the next morning when the evidence was clear - paw prints on the back of the truck and tunnel cover.

On our final day we packed everything up and decided to have a beach day. I like the beach and on this trip so far I had virtually none, so dear hubby went along with the idea and we spent the day at the beach. It was a great decision - the girls really like it and were not "needy" almost the entire time. We had a lot of snacks, so that might of helped! A highlight for me was a wonderful smoked meat dinner at the Sharps's campsite. They had all the camping toys you could imagine. Doug smoked the beef the entire day...to perfection! truly a camping treat!
Over all the trip was a great experience for the girls and a learning experience for their mother and father. This is not going to detour us from making these types of memories...I will just be better prepared!
