We are just back from four nights camping at Blow Me Down Provincial Park, which is one of my favourite places to visit.

While on the beach at Bottle Cove, we were surprised by a beach-goer of a different sort.
This young bull moose wandered along at the edge of the grass, seeming rather unconcerned about all the humans watching him from the water's edge and from farther up the beach. I think this is the closest I've been to a moose. It was fun to watch him, though I have to admit I was a little nervous as he walked past me and Nathan, considering he was only about 30 feet away.
All three boys are excellent hikers, so we tackled two new hikes this trip. One took us to Cedar Cove beach and the other took us 230 feet up to the top of Lark Harbour Head. There's another hike we want to do, which takes you over 600 feet up a different mountain, but we'll have to wait until Nathan is a year or two older. I think that would be a little much for his legs right now!

Paul came across this idea for baking eggs in the portable barbecue, so we gave it a try one morning for breakfast. It worked perfectly!
We're hoping to get one more camping trip in before school starts. It's amazing how quickly this summer has flown by.
