Canada Day Long Weekend.


We went random camping near Limestone Mountain in Alberta during the Canada Day Long Weekend. Hubby turned an old cowboy hat into a witches hat for me. Nikon D70 ©


Although it rained quite a bit, we put up our tarp and had nice breaks. Nikon D70 ©

The squirrels were quite brave. Nikon D70 ©


The smoke from the fire helps keep the bugs away, with hubby’s new oven on the right, which he put together from another pipe culvert collar. There is a dutch oven inside with coals on the lid. Please see the next photo. Nikon D70 ©


View from above, on the right you can see the charcoal chimney starter. Please see the next photo. Nikon D70 ©


Hubby made a delicious lamb roast with vegetables, like mushrooms, potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, onions, etc. Nikon D70 ©

Look what Tok’s wearing, you wouldn’t think it’s summer.

Our rig. We put the cones near our camper so that vehicles know there are children or dogs about. Nikon D70

Fooling around 😉 Do you think Tok looks like the Blair witch?



Heritage Day Long Weekend


  1. Lovely photos Sisi. Your potjie looks delicious. Charles is very clever & inventive to convert the pipe into a potjie cooker. It is paradise for the dogs. What a fresh green colour the trees are. Thanks for sharing it with us. You could never be Liewe Heksie, way too clever for that role.


    • Thanks Colleen.
      It was, it’s worth lugging those cast iron pots along. The oven is working very well and makes a nice heater. It’s worth camping just for the dogs sake. The green is amazing, isn’t it? I would love to see the area in the fall and in winter as well. It’s our pleasure, thank you for keeping me motivated. Haai O blommie, nou maak jy my skaam 🙂 I wonder what Otilia would think.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
