This coming weekend in Canada is our “Victoria Day Long Weekend” where we celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria. Happy Birthday Queen!
Victoria Day also means that many of us gather up friends, family, dogs and cats and bundle up into cars to head to our cottages or our camping grounds for a fun weekend of campfires, fireworks and smores. This year a few of my friends are getting together to do just that (and maybe we just might add some alcoholic beverages in there, just like my friends in the pic below).
For today’s post I thought it would be fun to share with you some fun “Vintage Camping” photos from the 30s thru to the 50s of fellow outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy!
Lets hit the road shall we?
Make sure you don’t forget anything.
What you like to use for camping depends on family to family. Some of us like tents, others campers or for really living it up..the cottage!
These couples like their tents and why not? Easy to pack and light to carry and easy to take down (just not easy to put up).
Cottages are my favorite. Warm, dry and a bed to sleep in.
Sometimes the trips you make to the cottage or camping ground are long and you need to take a break for food and drink. These lovely woman from 1931 are doing it right. Tea in dainty tea cups while wearing stylish pants and berets is the perfect Glamping uniform.
Your here! Time to relax and freshen up and maybe eat something.
Or just sleep on the boat while others worry about food.
P.S. I love her PJs they are too cute!
Or maybe some quiet time is in order.
No camping trip is without a night by the campfire. Whether it’s roasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories or just watching the glow of the flames, you know that you will always have fun when you’re sitting around with friends around that fire.
And lastly, the award for the most handsome couple around, goes to this couple! Such style! Look at his socks and I just adore everything the wife is wearing. I will not be looking this cute this weekend but I might have to channel this look for another trip.
Have a wonderful weekend friends, even if it’s not a long weekend for you.
