Where does your heart long to go?
Once you’ve travelled to one place that you’ve fallen in love with you want to go more and more. For our family that is Sauble Beach, Ontario, Canada.
In Sauble, we just find it so relaxing with no schedules other than the pupalups telling us when it’s food time. Over the years of camping in Sauble Beach our trailers have grown up with us. We started camping with what we lovingly refer to as the “Flintstone’ trailer. It was a Citationette, not even big enough to to be a full citation. Those first few years of camping, the older kidlets were in a 2-room tent and the baby was in a playpen. Next we upgraded to a HUGE “bunk room” trailer that would sleep 9 if we needed it. If I think back eighteen years I think we had the big trailer our first year in Sauble Beach. The kidlets were 12, 9, 3 and 9 months. We camped with our friends for several years and the six kids all played together through the years. Our oldest hated camping and still hates it but the other three love camping with our oldest boy has his own pop up and our two youngest are going tent camping with friends this year. Our oldest’s last trip was with us to Disney in 2002 but with six people and Florida’s 4 people maximum we would never had been able to afford Disney otherwise. We stayed there for a week and the Fort Wilderness campground was one of the best we have ever been too. We have to say though that we feel we belong in Sauble. I think after 18 years of going to the same place you start to feel like a summer local.
We upgraded to a brand new but two year old trailer once the older two weren’t going all the time with us. We had built in bunk beds and a futon type couch that was the only slide out. That worked well until the two youngest outgrew the bunks. Then we got a larger trailer and the kidlets had their own “bunk room” and I loved it because I could close the door to their mess. Then my hubby got his Harley and I saw that our trailer dealer had the perfect trailer for us. We got it just before we had our annual trip to Sauble Beach. We went and exchanged our “not so old” trailer for the new “older model” trailer that we still have. Our first trip was with my daughter and our wonderful exchange student from Thailand. Then our boys came up with my awesome niece and my future daughter in law. It was a great adventure. We had to do all the tourist stuff for Sandy because well she was new to the camping thing and really it’s more like glamping now for us. The trailer has our own bathroom and the back room has a half bath. We tell the kids that showers are down at the public showers.
I’ve been to Cuba, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Jamaica twice, London, Paris, Lido de Jeselo, Venice, Verona, Assisi, Florence, Rome, Vatican City, Curacao and all over the United States with more to explore but my Happy Place is in my hammock with a book, glass of wine in Sauble Beach, Ontario.
