Lac Philippe

Over the weekend we went for a BBQ at Lac Philippe. It was beautiful but the water was so cold. Afterwards we went for a hike that was supposedly 20 minutes one way but turned into 3 hours. Thankfully we made it back just when the sun was about to set.

On the way of our hike we saw camp grounds with polished benches and paved roads with RVs parked right beside- talk about lazy camping. But it's not like I want to go 'real' camping with a tent in wilderness either.

"I don't do camping." I said, after a friend asked me to go camping this summer.
"Sleeping on the ground with a piece of plastic over your head? Back where I grew up that's called ' homeless'."
"But you get to be with nature!"
"I have a comfortable house with a bed I pay my mortgage to sleep in thank you."

File 'camping' that under #ThingsImmigrantsWillNeverUnderstand.


  1. Come on Poppy, camping is fun c: making s'mores at a firepit
    and singing songs with a guitar!
    Hiking in the nature is always nice ^__^
    Nice scarf btw! Xx

  2. Nice. I like the colors in your scarf.

  3. What a beautiful spot! My definition of camping usually involves my heated cottage. Ha.

  4. Lol. You always make me smile. You're the cutest. Personally I love camping. Lately though, we haven't had a chance to go to a real camp ground so we just set up in our backyard. It's called fancy camping. Lol. :P

    Love, x

  5. cool scarft dear :D


  6. lol, I agree with you on camping. Throw in all the bugs and the way your face feels when you wake up in the morning, no thanks. I wouldn't mind renting a cabin with a nice, big fireplace when the weather is cool (and dry). But no camping.

  7. I need my bed too!! I can't do camping, but ins this place could be!! you are very nice on your pics!! kisses!!

  8. Great photos, I love your outfit. I used to go camping all of the time, I find it so fun.

  10. Okay this is crazy, I swear we're practically neighbours, I live in Quebec about a 20min drive from ottawa and I grew up spending my summers at LacPhillipe. My friend now works there too. While i dont fully comprehend your apprehension of camping I have to say that RVs are definitely a copout to the real canadian experience


  11. Oh Pop... I detest camping... I even wrote a post about it last year.. called my idea of camping... a five star hotel on a beach... lol

    I do like nature, it is nice to visit or hike in but not to sleep in ... You will never see me there...

    Let's rent a gorgeous cabin, we will sleep comfortably ... the campers can have the outdoors :)

  12. Hahaha! I'm glad you managed to make it back before sunset and getting lost in the dark! I love camping but I gotta have a thick sleeping bag or thin mattress to sleep on and a good netting to keep bugs out and emergency blinding flashlights and maybe a shot gun to shoot bears or robbers! It's aint a easy past time but I'd love to camp in canada or in a national park in the states!

  13. You look so adorable! I loved your scarf nd yea I am not a big fan of camping either :(

  14. Lovely post darling! Great styling!


  15. Love all the are looking smoking hot :) how do you manage to choose such lovely backgrounds ? :)

  16. You're really gorgeous!!!! HAHA! I really love posts... frank but really funny, makes me smile... I have tried camping and it was really fun!!

  17. Heh. My parents were born in Korea. They took us camping when we were kids but always in a RV!

    I do really love camping. I'm lucky, I guess... I sleep really well in tents, and I'm not sure if that's because of the cold air or how quiet it is. There's nothing more breathtaking than unzipping the tent flap and looking out at something like this (the link takes you to a photo of Applebee campground in the Bugaboos):

  18. Ha ha, love your attitude! My friend is inviting me to go glamping, i.e. glamorous camping, but it's too much preparation, so I cannot be bothered… I would rather go camping, but I would only put up with the inconvenience for one night.
    You are looking very nice in your pictures!

  19. Love your scarf and top! :)

  20. Love the photos! Lac Philippe looks beautiful.

    I never cared for camping much. However, my friends want to take me and show me how fun it can be, so who knows? I might end up liking it one day.

  21. GReat photos and thank you so much for your lovely thoughts on my past post!!
    Deeply appreciate it ;)

  22. I dislike camping as well. I've only been once, and it was probably one of the worst experiences I've ever had. It's cold in the morning, and it's usually wet due to the dew. And don't even get me started on the noises that animals make.
