Candle Lake, Saskatchewan 2014

Candle Lake, Saskatchewan :: A Harvest of Blessing

Iā€™m on a mission to go on five day/weekend/week trips throughout Saskatchewan this year. This is number five, you can also check out one, two, three and four.

Our last camping trip of the summer was a short but sweet one. We had five nights booked at Candle Lake but due to weather we ended up only staying two of the nights. (But, I am so thankful we did, the first night back at home we had one of the loudest thunderstorms I’ve heard in a long time, that would have been crazy loud in our tent!)

We went camping at Candle Lake for the first time last year and one of our main highlights was Waskateena Beach. I would highly recommend it for anyone with young children, the beach is shallow for so long, probably close to 300 feet, and then it was still only up to Raeca’s waist.

This year they had little kits you could take out for 24 hours, we got out the rock kit which included a magnify glass and a rock book for us to discover the rocks around our site. Had we stayed longer we definitely would have gotten the bug kit out and possibly some others.

The last morning was a bit chilly, we just walked along the beach and played in the sand a bit, somehow, even though she hardly went in the water, Rae got a leech between her toes. She said it was tickling her and cruised back to the campsite fairly quickly on her bike where we salted the little guy and got him off.

All in all it was a great end to our camping season. While I would definitely go to Candle Lake again I’m looking forward to checking out some new-to-us lakes for next year.

Did you go camping this year?

    Eeeeek! A leech?! Haha. I’m a city girl, and I think camping sounds like fun in theory. But that’s just conjecture on my part. šŸ˜‰ Plus? We live in Alabama, and it’s HOT and HUMID and disgusting most of the summer here. That said, I would love to go camping somewhere (not tropical) one day. I added “glamping” to my bucket list on my blog this morning, actually! THAT is right up my alley. Hehe.

      Haha, yeah, the leech was gross, but it was good other than that! See, I think our summers here in Saskatchewan are more like the spring and falls of other, warmer places. Summer is nice here (it’s the only season that is really). Also, if you want to go glamping you MUST check out The Beloved Society’s glampout! They just had one a few weeks ago and are planning a fall one. If I didn’t live so incredibly far away I’d totally go (I’m hoping for next year): http://thebelovedsociety.blogspot.ca/


  3. I am in love with this post! I am itching to go out and be in nature – you’ve inspired me!

    I’m intrigued by the book you are reading. Please tell more.

      It’s by Liz Curtis Higgs. I started reading it but couldn’t get into it šŸ™ BUT I really do like her fiction stuff so I’ll definitely try reading it again, maybe I was was just too distracted at the beach.
