We were at Long Lake this weekend, which is one of Alberta's Provincial Parks. We went for a nature walk and on our way back I ventured off the path and into the bush. (Which is apparently a no-no, so don't tell....) Suddenly Cassie looks down and sees:
To which we say, "WTF?".
Cassie and Leon start pulling this container out of its hidey hole and open it up. (Picture re-enacted by Liv, who was not with us initially.)
Inside this container was a notebook and pen so that you could write a little something and date it. It went back to early summer 2008 and was written on by many.
There were little items in there. On the instructions, which was an actual website idea, you were to look at it and enjoy the find. If you wanted to take something out you were welcome to, but you had to put something in in its place. You notice Liv holding a silly little ball thingy. That was her donation and she took out a Little Pet Shop toy. There was everything from camp straps to tape to ear plugs to toys. There was even a love note to a long lost love, vowing to find each other again. It was so sweet!
This was easily one of my top 5 Long Lake moments in all the years we've been going there.
I'll finish with a photo of the young lady who first found the "Happy Place" container, and the girls and Ringo with it. I plan to print the group shot and put it in a ziplock baggie and put into the container.
Next to this, of course, would be the fact that I have caught more fish than Leon. I will enjoy this for now, because naturally it is just beginner's luck.
