I'm not going to lie - not having time to photograph was hard. But it was also really, really good for me. I needed some time where I only grabbed my camera when the moment moved me instead of aiming for something awesome every day. Sometimes I would go most of the week without touching my camera. For someone who has been obsessed with picture-taking for the past six years, this is a Big Deal.
Since I finished work, I've been rediscovering our 'normal' life and bringing my camera along, too. One of the ways we really wanted to celebrate the coming of summer and its accompanying relaxation was to go on our first camping trip of the season. We drove to the coast, pitched our tent - and it began to drizzle.
We made the most of it and had a wonderful time anyway (especially when the sun came out mid-morning!) One of the places we visited was Ganong Nature Park, which we discovered last summer and hoped to come back to. I remembered it as being simple and pretty, but we had been there in July. Coming back in May was astounding, because the park was bursting with flowering trees and vibrant greens. We only stayed thirty minutes as it was cold and dark, but it was wonderful nonetheless.
