After spending two years in a row at Arrowhead, we wanted to try something new and decided on Balsam Lake Provincial Park for our family vacation this year. We chose Balsam because four years ago, we had spent a rainy weekend camped at there with friends. Most of that weekend is a blur, but the one thing that the kids and John remember was that Balsam Lake had an amazing beach. Since we love to spend our days and evenings playing in the water, Balsam was the perfect place to camp.
Most of our days were spent between lazing at the beach or chilling out at the campsite. On the only day that it called for rain, we went into the town of Lindsay, did some shopping and ate dinner. It was a low key vacation for us. The kind of vacation reminded all of us the meaning of family and how important it is. Here's our week in pictures.
