Our Camping Trip

Our day began on Saturday, with Kathy and Marti taking a cruise on the tall ship, Appledore IV. Once out in the bay, it was full sail, but I couldn't get a picture.

One of the highlights of our stay at Port Crescent, was the look-out at the day use park. Birds of prey are a common site there, especially bald eagles. We didn't see any, but the sound of the birds, and the quiet peaceful surroundings were just beautiful. Here, Marti is looking through the telescope over the terrain. Claire watches on.
Daddy helps her see through the telescope.
Wendy and Dan are quite the recyclers! What an imaginative way to make tent lights! Mustard bottles, old pill bottles, and caps make a colorful display! I thought this was so clever! And you'll never see them anywhere else!
Evenings ended by the fire pit, s'mores were our special treat, and a pleasant end to the day.

How fun! Love the recycled lights. I have been so hungry for smores by the fire side. Now you have done it. I must go searching for a fire and take my chocolate bar, marshmallows, and graham crackers. Oh yes, a wash cloth too because I plan on being really messy.

Oh, that sounds like fun, Laurie. The lights are a great idea, they're colorful and look kind of like Japanese lanterns. Diane
