A hammock tent!

Defying the odds.

The owners keep animals at the park. The pig and goat share a home and are best buds.  Their daughter’s dog used to live with them too but decided to move out, they do however, remain the best of friends.:) I was told that sometimes you can see the daughter, followed by her dog, then the pig and finally the goat at the rear, walking on the beach.

Mary March Wilderness Park, Newfoundland & Labrador

If you love glamping and enjoy posh settings when you camp, this may not be the place for you. If you like seeing the world from a different perspective, go…walk the shoreline of the lake, see the shore birds, walk in the woods and listen to the song birds, study the trees, listen to the loons at night, see how nature thrives on the rocky shores, light a soothing campfire, breath deeply and relax totally.

Everything we meet is equally important or unimportant.
