Camping on the Mysterious Island
|our campsite on l'Île Mystérieuse|
We had a fantastic weekend camping with friends in Poisson Blanc Regional Park.

The weather looked promising when we started off in our rented canoes, but after about 2 hours of paddling we started to see dark clouds and lighting in the distance.

We managed to make it to a little island just as it started to rain and hail. Fortunately the storm passed quickly.

By the time we made it to our campsite, the skies had cleared and it was a beautiful evening.

We had gorgeous weather for the rest of the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the lake. I swear we ate better than we ever have at home; our friends brought delicious marinated ribs, salad rolls, bacon n' eggs and so much more food. Good thing we had another long canoe ride home to burn off all those calories!
I can't decide whether I prefer this spot or our campsite at Algonquin Park.
