The end of rainy season has been declared last week. Apa lagi, camping, here we come! Camping is our routine outdoor activity in summer. This time, we decided to camp at a campsite called Shikoku Saburo no Sato, which was about an hour drive from the city. We have been here two years ago and really enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, so we decided to come back and camp again. Apart from camping we had another mission, which was to explore the so called 'clearest river in Shikoku island', Anabuki river. The Anabuki river has been awarded as first grade quality water in Japan and has been holding the title for more than 10 years.

Looking for a nice spot to land

Decision made! お決まり

A Japanese man fishing

Another man fishing, some peculiar method!

Very translucent clear water

Setting up a tent for some shade

Enjoying the cooling water

It definitely was my first time seeing people fishing using this method. He was using a binocular-like box to look for fish in the water while another hand holding a fishing rode.

All refreshed!

Time really flies when you are having fun. It was time for us to check into the campsite. We had to check in before 5pm and make sure the tent is set and dinner is ready before sunset.

Cooking time!

Our dinner

Ah...I ended up cooking too much food! We had roast chicken, baked potato and carrot, all sorts of grilled vegetables, barbeque chicken, lamb and beef. We ate so much! Luckily we had a cool box with lots of ice in it. So, we stored all the food in the cool box, hoping they would still edible the next day.

The next morning, we woke up at 5am, to watch the sunrise while I prepared breakfast. It was definitely a sight to see. Above was our new comfortable spacious dome tents, which the front part represent the living/dining and the back represent the bedroom. The two tents were joint together.

simple breakfast

Before enjoying our breakfast, I quickly prepared the ingredients for pineapple turnover cake and used the Dutch oven to bake, which I had used for last night's dinner, roast chicken. It took me about one hour to bake.

Surprisingly it turned out OK...just like any regular cake I baked in electrical oven! I was quite suspicious at first, wondering how it would be. So, now I know it really can function as an oven, I would definitely challenge myself with some other recipes. Hmm...maybe an apple pie next time? *wink*
My hubby would definitely love it!

Have a wonderful summer!
