On Friday night, we spent the night at Othello Tunnels Campground in Hope, BC, but the others in our party found the passing trucks unbearable. I didn't really notice the trucks because I didn't know any better. But we packed up and drove up the forest road to Jones Lake.
And the sounds of nature were sonorous. And the sky was jammed with stars and a few planets. And it didn't really take that long to set up or tear down. And the beach was covered with sand and glass, but the girls had a good time. And I had a good time too, although I was admittedly antsy.
At one point, my S5's battery died because we forgot the car charger. Fortunately, I'd decided to bring the old Blackberry Torch, which I initially intended to be my daughter's camera for the trip. I used the Torch for quite a few photographs, including the one of frogs in the top-right corner. It was fun to use the old-school cameraphone, but it was also a good reminder of the severe superiority of the S5. The novelty of the Torch's camera wears off quickly.
It's good to know about the campsite. I will return there. I'd like to return sometime without needing to stress out about the RV's tires and whatnot, perhaps just to go there with the kids.
