Our First Canadian Summer Holiday…

… in Waskesiu, Prince Albert National Park, was memorable, even with the vampires mosquitoes trying to suck all our blood. They are vicious and blood thirst. I was always fighting against them, I killed some and some sucked our blood. We went to a campsite that is secluded in the forest, therefore it was inevitable for us to get so close to all types of wide life. Deers were our every day neighbour. They were shy of humans, but came to eat in the around the campsite when they thought we were not observing. Hubby captured a picture of one that reminded me of Bambi –

so cute!likebambi It was really nature at it best. Green wild life and blue, blue sky and lake. We canoned and went fishing – yes, a pregnant woman casting a fishing rod :). preggofisherwomanI caught a tiny fish…tinyfishand hubby initially caught a medium size fish…smallfish …but we let them go, because they were not big enough. After more fishing hubby caught a big one – I was so proud of my man.bigfish The fish – pike – was slimy, but once cleaned, peppered and put on the barbeque…fishonfire … it was yummy with a little bit of sea salt. yummyfishfinishedfish We also so saw few elks. The cutest scene happened on a rainy day. The beach was empty, we were chilling and drinking hot chocolate under a nearby public kitchen shelter when we saw an elk crossing the street with her little one – so, SO sweet!elk The following day we went to chill under the sun.coolpreggo

It was a perfect short holiday, but we really enjoyed it. It combined our love for nature, water and sun together. We minded about the mosquitoes, but it didn’t make us not want to go there again. It is also a family friendly place and although some people looked at us, we know they were looking because truth to be told… we are darn cute mixed race couple ^_^!. Well, we can’t wait to go there with our little Berry and our extended family next year – however, we might go there again next month :).

Where are you going on holiday this summer? As a couple of mixed culture and race do you find people looking at you more in some places? How does that make you feel?


  1. must have felt amazing to be so close to nature and all it's wonders! love bambi so close up! beautiful! im probably doing a lot of area vacas this summer!

  2. My boyfriend isn't the same race as I am, and I always feel like people are thinking rude things about it. It's nobody's business but mine and my boyfriend's. Love is love!

  3. mosquitoes love me! seriously, my mom always said my blood must be sweet because everyone around me wasn't getting bit but me! ugh.

    but everything looks so beautiful! makes you see how beautiful God is! the deer really looks like Bambi!!! :)

    when we first started dating we always got some looks ... but now hardly ever or maybe we don't notice it anymore ... but honestly, i don't really care what anyone thinks ... i'm in the best relationship in my life and it just happens to be with someone who isn't my race. but i know they stare at us because we are just too hot, hehe :)

  4. Looks like a great trip to me. Plus I am jealous...I am in Texas burning up and you are/were drinking hot chocolate under a nearby public kitchen!!!!! No fair. Love elks. Especially baby ones...and speaking of: love your baby bump pic. very cool...

  5. Happy belated SITS day!

    I have always wanted to travel to Canada, because I've heard so many good things about the country. Your photos confirm how beautiful it is!


  6. I've never gone fishing before! That's pretty neat that you caught something! :) Glad that you had a good time!

  7. WOW! I am amazed that you were fishing! I don't know if I could do it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE fish.....just cooked and on a plate. :)
    My husband and I are of the same culture and race. However, we embrace people of all races, cultures, mixed, etc. Life is too short to stereotype or judge others.


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
