Barnabas Landing

Barnabas Landing from the ferry. Nov. 15, 2017

Camping spot beside the sea,
tents sprout under apple tree.
Someone tucks the kids to bed,
flocks of geese V overhead.

Trails through woodlands to explore,
canoe or sail or fish some more,
watch the pigs philosophize,
lambs graze and a lone loon cries.

Dine in nature’s dining hall,
decor that surpasses all,
gourmet meals served sumptuously,
time for second cups of tea.

Breathe the early morning smell,
learn the truth you once knew well,
mountain peaks fade into grey
experience REAL holiday.

    Yeah, not the time of year for camping. It is a gorgeous retreat centre now.

    Sounds ideal! Could use a camp out like that right now – if it were a little warmer and drier out!
