WE LEFT KAMLOOPS LAST SATURDAY and returned a week later. Our camping destination was just that: away from the craziness of life, away from breaking news and that obsessive daily COVID-19 count.
It’s been a crazy year so far and we’ve yet to see how it ends. Worries are piled high for young and old and everyone in between. One way to escape is to turn off phones and step away from everything social media even for just a few days.
The other reset button is being in nature, where life goes about at a slower speed and that’s what we found in our chosen camping spot by the lakeside.
We’d wake up to early morning silence and loons gliding over the glassy lake surface, their mysterious silhouettes matching our sleepy memories of their haunting calls in the nighttime.
