I’m a bit behind in my posting, we went camping after we left the temple Sunday morning.  We got there around 2 pm and we were told that they didn’t have power and running water.  The power went out about the same time as the temple but theirs didn’t come back until the night we left the campground.  We decided to stay since our RV has a generator, and we thought that we could bath in the creek.  We had plenty of drinking water and food supply to last us for a few days.

Many campers left when the power went out so the place looks kind of empty.

Surprisingly there were rabbits everywhere.  I had to get out from the RV to chase several away before Bo could park.

My dad was on the water hunt.

Lee didn’t have any friend her age, so the game kept her entertained.

It works as a camera also.

The best part about this camping trip was the water tubing.  The weather in Virginia was above 100 that week and imagine for some campers there was no air condition.

Lee had loads of fun.

My second sister loved it.

As for Bo, he was so excited and didn’t even change his clothes.

The waterfall was nice and ice cold.

Bathing in the creek was not so bad. My oldest sister visiting from NYC came with us this time so she had a real camping experience.

Lee found a craw fish fossil.

Our meal was simple, we had spicy papaya salad and shrimps.

I’m telling you, the rabbits were everywhere.

Bo broke his fly fishing rod while fishing in the creek, so he was using Lee’s pink fishing pole to fish at the pond.

He caught 2 big catfish on the last day.

My dad asked him to release both of them.

I was surprised to see a full moon that night, and of course I didn’t have my tripod with me.

I used a bench and it’s a bit low but it works.

The night was a bit chilly and it’s nice to finally get to make S’more by the campfire.

It was a beautiful night, minus the sound of the generators humming away.  I would trade that sound for crickets and frogs any day.

The video was shot with Canon T2i and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens. The photos were taken with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens and EF70-200mm f/4L USM lens.

  1. Looks like a fun place for the family. Love the cute bunnies!

    Bo’s fishing reminds me of this joke about a fish being late because he got caught up in something. His fish friend didn’t believe him and asked to look at his lip. Well it was funny when I first heard it… 😀

    • cn, that’s a funny story. It was a good thing that Bo caught the catfish on the last day otherwise my oldest sister might have cooked it for our dinner. The bunnies are cute and we saw a few baby bunnies also.
