10 years ago – Camping at MacGregor Point

If my memory is correct, it was 10 years ago that Dad, Julie, Brian, Leanne, and I (with Winger and Surf) went camping for the May long weekend at MacGregor Point Provincial Park.

It was the weekend that Walkerton’s e-coli outbreak hit the news.

It wasn’t warm.

I slept in my little tent with my dogs, and Dad, Julie, Brian, and Leanne slept in the other tent.

When a park ranger drove through the park after dark to tell everything that there was a bear running around the park and we should all stay put, I freaked out and my dogs and I slept in the back seat of my car with the windows open a centimetre. I slept on the floor and the dogs got the seat. It wasn’t as comfortable as you’d think.

Here are a few pictures I dug out of my photo album and scanned:




And just because these were cute, I scanned in two photos of Julie from July 2000 in Mom’s old backyard. The first one is with Surf, and Winger got into the second photo with them.

  1. Very nice pictures Lisa.
    I remember wanting to sleep in the car too, but dad wouldn’t let me. He promised to save me from the bear though.
