Skates, friends & a wintry bell tent hot chocolate hut: A girls day in the snow

After a morning of skating,  snow shoeing and a winter blast of fresh air, what could be more fun than hanging out with a few girl friends with some mugs of hot chocolate, popcorn and a game of Bellz. It’s a glampy life. And what girl doesn’t love a little glam… Time to get cosy … More Skates, friends & a wintry bell tent hot chocolate hut: A girls day in the snow

November glamping photo shoot … or faking summer at one degree celsius

Before the snow officially covers Nova Scotia, we hauled the family to Bayswater beach for one last summery, beachy photo shoot with one of our 4 Metre Bell Tents. It’s not easy making Nov. 22 look like July, as early winter shadows creep along the tent walls. The sun was surely misleading, but the blustery blast of fresh air … More November glamping photo shoot … or faking summer at one degree celsius

Toasty Fall Glamping

Flurries drifted outside my window yesterday. Brrrrr. And a last, lonely leaf hanging outside has finally let go.  Almost hibernation time. Or…perhaps it’s bundle up and just get cozy time. As we prepare to launch our East Coast Glamping website in a few weeks, we’re scurrying to finish our last outdoor photoshoots and writing inside…by the fire. Stay toasty … More Toasty Fall Glamping

Earthy bread for glampers

My 10-year-old and I baked this fabulous Danish Stone-Age Bread from The Family Cooks cookbook by Laurie David. It was so easy, super yummy and energy-packed (not to forget, gluten-free).  I’ll see about posting the recipe for our inquiring pals in Ireland. Standby… In the meantime, here’s something similar: Danish Crisp Bread Crackers, by the same author. I … More Earthy bread for glampers

For the ‘LOVE’ of fall glamping in Cape Breton

The colours, they are a turning up in the highlands of Cape Breton. A brief return of summer, sunlight streaming around every mountainous corner, we hiked, searched for moose and enjoyed a blast of fresh highland air.

A wild moose chase along the Cabot Trail

Turns out, moose are everywhere along the Cabot Trail: One of our prerogatives this past glamping weekend, while fall camping in Cape Breton, was to find a moose. We heard it’s not uncommon to see these beautiful, ginormous mammals, roaming the highland plains of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. So we set our compasses to ‘moose’ and off we … More A wild moose chase along the Cabot Trail

Glamping is… a day cycling the Cranberry Islands, Maine

There are two little islands posted off the tip of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park in Maine. On our recent glamping trip we stepped back in time and spent a day ferrying with our bicycles between Great Cranberry and Little Cranberry (Islesford Island). It was pure magic and invokes memories of Anne of … More Glamping is… a day cycling the Cranberry Islands, Maine
