A very brief post this week, as we continue to be enthusiastic about unpacking the boxes we spent the past two weeks packing. An invisible modern life problem to be sure, but goodness, where did all this stuff come from?

More boxes? Hmm.

Anyway, one of the many delights of our new neighbourhood is that Scout and I can scamper along the beach for our morning walks. Yes, if you’re up early and out there, you’ll catch a glimpse of a scampering PlaidCamper, gambolling in the surf and chasing sticks. Honestly, how does Scout keep up with me?

We gambol here. Or do we scamper? Hmm.

Right, time to shake off the sand, a quick towel down, and it’s back to the boxes…

What boxes? Easily distracted. Hmm.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

“Has he gone yet? I need some rest…”

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

    1. Thanks, Jane! This is our new home, and we’re enjoying the location. I hope all is well with you – we had snow the past 24 hours, and it was most un-spring like!


  1. I think Scout needs a new Life is Good dog collar to celebrate the beautiful morning walks and naps by the fireplace!🐾😁 You guys must be very excited to be in your wonderful new home and since I don’t enjoy cooking, I would be quite happy to leave those boxes packed up for a few more months.😁 Great wins for Everton and Tottenham this weekend and love the pale ale label! Enjoy the week and don’t hurt yourself scampering before those boxes are unpacked!😁


    1. The beer was almost as good as the packaging!
      Unpacking is no more thrilling than packing, and it sure slowed down my scampering… We’re happy to be in, the oven is all propane and very responsive – but I’m not much of a baker, so not likely to be producing batches of cupcakes, although the photos you post have me thinking about it. Works of edible art!
      No idea what happened to get that performance out of Everton, but I’m not complaining – until the next loss!
      Scout’s life is so good, having a new Life is Good collar would be too much (but I’ll check the website…)
      I hope your week is going well!
