April flowers at the church camp (2010)


Cedar Lodge at Edgewood (2010)

Our women’s retreat at our church camp is coming soon. As well as our usual Bible Study, we do a craft, go for long walks in the campgrounds, worship outdoors, socialize and eat well. Looking forward to it. Perhaps I’ll get more pictures this year.

    What beautiful flowers. Just a little gift under that tree. I’ve had some good times at church ladies retreats too. Have a great time at your upcoming one.

      I liked that photo so well that I combined it with another flower photo and had special cards made. Looking forward to getting away. We have a lot of fun. Thanks.

    Those flowers are so sweet. It’s wonderful to get away for some nature time, isn’t it!

    • 4. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 1:19 pm

      Thanks. The nature time is good and the camp has some good features, like our walk up to the ridge, usually Saturday morning.

    I love spring flowers. Looks like a nice place.

    • 6. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 1:20 pm

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. The camp is going through upgrades and there’s plan to replace this cabin with something larger, but not just yet. It’s a nice camp; schools use it too.

  • 7. Sheila (Book Journey)  |  April 14, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I love the flowers… first signs of spring make me so happy!

    • 8. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 1:26 pm

      I’m with you there, Sheila. They do the same for me. Thanks for stopping by.

  • 9. cherylmahoney  |  April 14, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    Such beautiful flowers can pop up in the most random places…

    • 10. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 6:30 pm

      Tis true, especially in woodland or sunny areas. That’s nature at its best. 🙂

  • 11. gautami tripathy  |  April 14, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    Such pretty flowers and love the lodge too..

    Here is my Saturday Snapshot post!

    • 12. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 6:29 pm

      The lodge has no frills, but it does have the essentials and we have cooking facilities there too. I love the woodland flowers too.

  • 13. epkwrsmith  |  April 14, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    I love the idea of beautiful flowers growing wild like that…so special 🙂

    • 14. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 6:24 pm

      I think that’s why they caught my eye. It was still early and in the woods there’s not many flowers at that time of year. Thanks for stopping by.

  • 15. irene  |  April 14, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    Sounds like a wonderful get away. enjoy.

    • 16. storygal  |  April 14, 2012 at 6:23 pm

      Thanks, Irene. I’m sure it will be a good retreat again.

  • 17. Paulita  |  April 14, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    A rustic retreat. Hope you enjoy. Even more flowers should be in bloom with the warm weather this year. Here’s Mine

  • 18. storygal  |  April 15, 2012 at 12:29 am

    That’s just one of the buildings. Was a counsellor at one time when the cabins for the children and counsellors looked like mini log cabins. There are still some of those. Will maybe get a picture of those when I go. Thanks.

  • 19. Diane@BibliophilebytheSea  |  April 15, 2012 at 1:27 am

    Looks like a peaceful place:)

    • 20. storygal  |  April 15, 2012 at 11:40 am

      It is peaceful. The only times when it’s not is the land adjoining the camp that’s a rifle range for people to practise. We can hear it when we walk up to the ridge.

  • 21. Alyce (@AtHomeWithBooks)  |  April 15, 2012 at 4:28 am

    Those flowers look so pretty, and it does look peaceful. I could see why you would look forward to that!

  • 22. rubyport  |  April 15, 2012 at 5:15 am

    I love the flowers! So hopeful in the spring.

    Here’s my snapshot.

    • 23. storygal  |  April 15, 2012 at 11:31 am

      I agree. It’s one of the best parts of spring! Thanks for stopping by.

  • 24. storygal  |  April 15, 2012 at 11:22 am

    There are a variety of features of the retreat and being in the outdoors and away are two good ones. Thanks, Alyce.

  • 25. Louise  |  April 15, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Beautiful flowers there under the tree. You couldn’t pick a better spot to plant them!

    • 26. storygal  |  April 16, 2012 at 11:25 pm

      It’s hard to say how those flowers came to be there, but they are pretty. Thanks for stopping by.

  • 27. Edgar  |  May 12, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    The rustic setting and fresh air are good for the soul.Feel the presence.

  • 28. storygal  |  May 12, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    It is, Edgar. I like to just sit and be quiet there. Thanks for stopping by.

  • 29. Paulita  |  May 12, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    I think I’d enjoy a church retreat that include Bible readings during a massage and pedicure. That’d be my kind of retreat. Yours looks a little rustic for me, but I’m sure you all have a great, refreshing time. Here’s Mine

    • 30. storygal  |  May 12, 2012 at 11:23 pm

      Wonder what the ladies would say if I proposed a pedicure at the same time? It likely wouldn’t happen at this camp. We had a good weekend, not too much rain and we had good company and excellent food.

  • 31. Laura (@BurgandyIce)  |  May 13, 2012 at 1:03 am

    Looks like a great place to camp out!! Quite the lil’ getaway! Woodsy flowers, too. Nice!

    • 32. storygal  |  May 14, 2012 at 12:39 am

      When I was a camp counsellor at that camp in my teens, we did go on overnight campouts and one of my favourite things was our campfire when we sang songs and watched the fire burn down.

  • 33. Bev@My Reader's Block  |  May 13, 2012 at 2:20 am

    Beautiful white flowers! Looks like a lovely place for a retreat.

    Here’s my Snapshot.

  • 34. diane  |  May 13, 2012 at 2:53 am

    Looks like such a peaceful place. Great photos

    • 35. storygal  |  May 13, 2012 at 11:40 am

      After we unload our gear, all vehicles need to be driven back outside the gate to the parking lot. It is peaceful. And thanks. I do love taking pictures.

  • 36. Susan  |  May 13, 2012 at 3:00 am

    I loved going on my church retreat … it was surreal to be removed from all the responsibility of home life for those three days … so refreshing. I hope you enjoy it again this year!

    • 37. storygal  |  May 13, 2012 at 11:39 am

      I enjoyed being there; that was a couple of weeks ago now. Always like being our at our church camp. Thanks for stopping by.
