Dreaming of August…

For as long as Tom and I have been together, August is our camping month.
The bugs are almost non-existent, the nights are cool enough for sleeping, and the days still have some warmth to enjoy.

Our hammock collection has grown each year, after we hit the top of the line with our tent collection. We bring the Condo { 3 rooms when needed, 2 rooms most of the time}. We loan out the Apartment { 2 rooms when needed}. And we offer space on the site to visiting friends who might come up for a long weekend trip.

When May and June roll around, I am in my high season of work. The dancing is still in full flow, with classes and the Ottawa Centre Class Party that I organize coming up on June 12 ( http://www.tav-creations.com/classparty )

And the prom/bridal/dance recital season is blooming too as the tulips begin to wilt and finish their brief visit to the world.

When I daydream, it is of Algonquin park and whatever date we are set to depart in August. We have been going there for 11 years – this will be year 12. It is always the same, yet always different. Some years we canoe more, some years we walk more. The Ice Cream hike has become infamous amongst our visitors.

And the sunsets, and the hammocks, and the general sense of wholeness it brings to our souls.

I hope everyone has a happy place they can escape to in their minds during times of pressure and/or stress! Feel free to borrow mine if you need it…
