Wind and Water – Part 2

As you know if you’ve read Part 1, there were things I could have taken with me to make my cottage trip a little more comfortable. So here’s my revised must-pack list for a trip to the cottage!


  • Warm sweater – because it can get very chilly!
  • Pants/jeans – to protect from the weather and while hiking
  • Light clothing – to travel and lounge in
  • Swimwear – the water is usually too good to resist
  • A complete change of clothes – just in case


  • Water shoes – in case there are sharp rocks on the beach
  • Flip flops – easiest to change into after a swim
  • Sneakers/Running shoes – best for hiking and general running around


  • 2 Towels – one for the beach and one for drying off
  • Blanket – keeps you warm!
  • Entertainment – books, games, movies. It depends on the group that is going but will come in handy, especially in case of inclement weather.
  • Camera – because you can get some amazing shots!
  • Insect repellent
  • Sunscreen

For the car:

  • Food & Water – because the drives are usually long
  • Pillow – someone is bound to fall asleep

I had an amazing time. It was cold. And I did have to stop reading my book out of fear for my life, as the rogue frisbee seemed hell-bent on causing everything, and everyone, around it pain. BUT the positives outweighed the minor bumps by a long stretch. I’m so glad I got to go and would jump at the chance to do so again! I will definitely be more prepared next time!

Anyone else in love with cottage life? Anything to add to the list?
