Outhouses, Wild Rapids and Fireworks

After a long weekend of white water rafting, sleeping in a huge tent and unfortunately, having to use an outhouse, I'm back to work; wishing I was sleeping instead.

I don't have time to post much about my weekend at the moment, so be forewarned that you're about to be bombarded with pictures!


Andrew and I en route to Otttawa
On Saturday, myself, Andrew, his brother, Raymond and our friend Savio headed up to Ottawa. It was a long, six hour drive. 

Me and Andrew's brother, Ray
We made mandatory picture pit stops along the way.

 We came across this little farm that was selling fresh pies.

It was strictly an honour system: You take what you want from the fridge and you pay for it in the box next to it.

We got these cute little heart shaped tarts that were really good!

 After what felt like days of driving, we finally made it to the resort! We had dinner and set up our giant tent, which was crowned the Taj Mahal of tents.

We finished the night off with some drinks around a communal fire, where we got to know our fellow campers. I then spent the night freezing in our tent and really wished we were still by that fire. 


Sunday was our big white water rafting day. There's a lot to say about what happened on our trip, so I'm going to save it for tomorrow's That Time I

The picture above is a preview our trip. Yes, that's our boat. And yes, the person who is flipped upside down and falling into the water is someone in our group. You'll have to come back tomorrow to find out who it is!


Monday was our Victoria Day, which meant I had the day off work. We drove back to Toronto, taking a scenic route. It was beautiful, passing tons of trees along the way.

The route got us to Toronto much faster than we expected, so we stopped off at a Red Lobster to meet up with friends and have dinner.

Which was followed by a walk along the boardwalk and drinks on the patio. 

Of course, no holiday is complete without fireworks.

The perfect end to an amazing weekend!
