A weekend in the Tin Can Cottage

A weekend in the Tin Can Cottage
So... for our second weekend out in our new trailer we had rain, rain and more rain!
You can see it running down the edge of the canopy here. It came down in buckets!

But the view from our campsite
was really pretty. This new campground has been carved out of an old area of trees and marsh.. so that everywhere you look it is green, green, green.

So even though I was stuck in the
"Tin Can Cottage" almost all weekend, the view out my window was beautiful and there were all kinds of birds flitting around (including humming birds)
whenever the rain let up for a while.
I am going to bring a couple of bird feeders out for the summer so that I can enjoy the birds up close.

There is nothing like being curled up with a blanket and a book (or now a days an iPad) to help you relax and disengage from the stresses of everyday life, which really is a main reason that we go camping.

I have to say that upgrading to a large trailer was a brilliant idea. The weekends of rain have shown us how functional this little place is, and we found ourselves happily occupied in spite of the lousy weather.

On our last, the weather improved slightly and we were able to take a stroll on the old fashioned boardwalk and enjoy the view of lake Winnipeg which goes as far as the eye can see!
