We leave for the Boundary Waters and four days of camping and canoeing in less than 24 hours, hooray! I am really looking forward to this vacation. And I'm very excited about bringing the good camera, that is, the digital camera, instead of those cheap waterproof disposables that take grainy, crappy pictures. I've been wanting to bring our good camera for a while now, and today I finally went to REI and bought a really nice waterproof case for it. $45 for peace of mind and some great pictures. The camera stays in the bag and you take pictures through it, so the waterproof bag never need be opened. We tested it out already and it works great if you aren't using the flash, which I doubt I'll need much being outdoors all the time. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I love to take pictures, so I'll really have fun up there with my good camera.
Cocoa Puffs is going to her doggie hotel in a couple of hours, and she'll be there while we're gone. Wah! I know she will be okay there, I'm not worried about that, they take good care of her and she plays well with the other doggies, I will just miss her. Maybe next year we can take her with us up there. That would be fun. I just picked up the latest issue of Bark magazine and there's a great article about taking your dog in the canoe. If you love dogs and you haven't seen this magazine, run right out and get a copy, it's really fun. Not like Dog Fancy or some of that other crap, this is more literary and silly. And it has outrageous ads for dog stuff.
