Bon Echo Provincial Park – 3AM!

Bon Echo Provincial Park – 3AM!

3AM – Outside of the tent, it is pouring rain. Raccoons are making the rounds. Everything inside the tent is dry and I have been awakened by the rain and raccoons fighting over an unopened sachet of hot chocolate powder inadvertently left out on the picnic table. Adell, with a flashlight out the door, is providing me with a blow by blow of the masked bandit activities outside the door of her side of the tent and shouting “Scat, Scat” at the raccoons who have now scurried up a tree. Not a peep out of the dogs in the neighboring campsites even though the raccoons must be only a few feet from where those dogs are sleeping.

It seems a bit strange to be tapping away at an iPad – in a tent at 3AM! Time to stop this silliness and get back to sleep. Hope those raccoons enjoy chocolate milk powder :-).

The woods have been bone dry for weeks but, after tonight’s all-night rain, I expect that the ban on fires will be lifted.
