We went camping at Nutimik Lake in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. Nutimik is the Cree word for “up the river”. Here’s some pictures of our campsite and of the area. It rained the first 2 days so we spent a lot of time inside the camper, but that was okay, it was very relaxing. We got some sunshine too. We took those walks I talked about. 🙂
I saw a wide range of wildlife: a deer, a rabbit, chipmunks, crows, a crane, a flock of black birds, a bald eagle, chickadees, and some other songbirds I don’t know (lol). I was hoping to see a black bear (from afar) but didn’t.
Cooking over an open fire was a lot of fun! I tried individual dinner pouches. I greased tinfoil with coconut oil and placed on them: cubed potatoes, green beans (from the garden), chopped onion, green pepper, carrots, sausage, salt and pepper. I folded the tinfoil over and sealed it, then cooked it for about 30 minutes on the campfire, turning 2 or 3 times. They turned out very good! I cooked a similar dinner the next night too.
For breakfast we had nectarines and plums with yogurt.
Another favorite is baked sweet potatoes. I wrapped them with foil and baked over hot coals for about 20 minutes then served them with melted butter and dill. So good!
It was a very relaxing few days away. But I’m glad to be home even though it will take a few days to get caught up. The animals are doing well. I can see I have a ton of green beans to pick and at least one cabbage is ready.
