Just spent an idyllic three days camping down at Summit Lake near Olympia in Washington.

Three nights spent fishing (more of that in another post), eating every BBQ food you can imagine, telling stories and singing around the camp fire!

It was a bit chilly. We were hoping the NW run of bad weather might break, but the clouds and sprinklings of rain didn’t dampen what was one of the most relaxing weekends we’ve had in months.

I didn’t check my phone or do any Twittering once either!

Must sub-consciously know I won’t have time for that when our baby’s born, so was getting some practice in.

Like the photos? See more on my Flickr stream…….

Post coming soon about the big trout I didn’t catch……or did I?
