The lush green landscape of The Manor at Camp John Hay

The main entrance to Camp John Hay along Loakan Road

The lush green road within the camp leading to its main facilities

A refreshing walk along the pine tree dotted road of the camp

The Le Monet Hotel and its commercial center

The rain soaked wooden benches and tables under the pine trees

Taking a refuge at The Manor

A very welcoming abode in the middle of rain-soaked camp

Keeping myself dry inside a warm-embracing comfort room

checking outside if the rain had stopped

Walking along its corridors kept me warm

Checking on its bakers and wine corner what it is in store for me

Deciding whether to order for hot coffee or hot chocolate while seated

Checking again outside if rain has subsided

Keeping myself warm again by walking and documenting what I see

Needed to transfer to a more conspicuous part of the hotel

Seated alone at a warmer part of the hotel

Opted to stay at the hotel's veranda to have a full view of the picturesque garden outside

Looking outside the heavy downpour while comfortably seated with other stranger guests

At last! The rain outside had stopped!

While at the kiddie's playground of the garden

Walking further to the midpoint of the garden

Looking back how far I've walked

Staying long at the garden was so refreshing

Had walked further what is in store at the Little Camp John Hay

The time to leave and stop being mesmerized by the fascinating ambiance of The Manor
