5 Star Camping: Ready, Set, Relax!

January 8, 2011 at 2:59 pm Leave a comment

Once we landed in Pender Harbor it finally felt like we were on vacation.  The weeks leading up to the wedding had been rush, rush, rush and with of feet on Canadian soil we now felt like “ready, set, relax!”  Upon our arrival at the Rockwater Secret Cove resort we confirmed our activity agenda with the front desk (Kayaking, Horseback Riding, and a couple’s massage) and went to find our Tent House!   This was five-star camping!

Our tent house had a steel structure covered with a canvas “tent” .  The slate floors had radiant heat; a must have every morning when we got up!  I had a minor obsession with the hydrotherapy tub.

Mr P is checking out the WiFi service.  Behind him was my second favorite feature, the rain shower.  Needless to say we we’re very clean throughout our stay.

Just like a tent, our tent house had screen/plastic/canvas windows.   For privacy you could roll down a canvas blind. If it got chilly (or windy) you could zip up the plastic window.

The view from our personal deck was amazing.

You access the tent houses via a raised wooden boardwalk.  The staff used that large bell on our stairs when they were delivering food to our tent house.  Not gonna lie, it scared the crap out of me a time or two.

By the time we arrived it was getting close to 2pm and we hadn’t eaten since breakfast.  We dove into our chicken burger (topped with green apple, brie, fresh herb aioli) fries, and salad.  Thankfully I remembered to take a picture before it was gone.

Beers sounded like a great idea ($7 per bottle did not but we fixed that later) and once our bellies were full we retreated to our little oasis to chill.

This may have been when we realized that we hadn’t packed any books or magazines for reading on our porch or by the pool.  Whoops- can you tell we don’t travel for pleasure much?

Later that evening we had a small plate dinner

Seared salmon

Mussels in white wine

Olives, cheese, and pate

We explored a little before wandering back to the tent house.

By the time we soaked in all the beautiful scenery we officially had made the transition to vacation mode.

Did it take a while for your body to adjust on your honeymoon?
