We got in some fall camping the other weekend… always a good time.
Through the woods and to the beach…
We are finally tall!
Camping is a little messy, but we don’t mind.
We kayaked through some cool wetlands.
…chasing this Great Blue Heron and some Sandhill Cranes.

Wow, I like ALL the shots but the sunset pictures are fabulous. Then again – I love trees! Lisa, you make it too hard to pick a favorite.
Did you camp on the beach? That’s one thing I grew tired of years ago. Grit in your burgers, grit in your bedding, grit in your clothing, grit in everything!!!!!!!!!!!

Louis our site was just off the beach in the woods… maybe a perfect two minute walk away from the beach. (:

Ciao Melissa, what a great place, non-touristy, great shots as always. :-)

Ciao Lynn, it doesn’t ever seem touristy in this particular park, even in the middle of the summer. It’s a beautiful place to escape!

Beautiful photos! I haven’t been camping in ages, but we always loved it when we were kids! :)

It’s as beautiful as ever! My girls loved playing at the beach for hours and hours, which means they slept like little rocks! (:

Melissa, I loved all of these, but the one of the water lily pads—do they actually stand up and enjoy the sun (heliotropic?)—I’d never seen anything like it! Of course, they may NOT be lily pads at all and then I’ll just go hide my head. Until then, I’ve made that photo my desktop background because I like it!

Suzy they were up in the air a few feet and facing the sun. They were by far the largest kind of lily pad I’ve ever seen. And they had neat seed pods sticking out of the water too. I’ve seen the seed pods dried and sold at craft stores and would have never guessed what plant they came from. Thanks for your kind words!!
