Camping At the Beach~

We love to spend time family camping so early this week we spent a night on site 27 at Winter Island,  the coveted first spot right next to the beach! It was wonderful to fall asleep on Sunday night listening to the waves roll in a few feet away. I think that this family was meant to live on the water. We love it so much! Here are a few of my favorite Winter Island photos. Needless to say, we had a good time!

IMG_2234What is this cool pole called? Maybe a peace pole?

Camping is also the best (next to gardening 😉  )

Enjoy everything!

    LOVE the picture of the boat in the moonlight! I think the smell of the ocean is infectious at night and in the early morning….Glad to see what a great time you are having!


    1. It is, the smell of the ocean air is the best. I came out of Home Depot the other day and I could smell it!


  2. I’ve never been to the ocean but it’s on my bucket list! Beautiful! and I love the lighthouse and moonlit boats. Looks so relaxing.


    1. Oh Brenda, I hope you make it one day! It is amazing.


  3. You are so right – camping and gardening – they are good things!


    1. Yes they are Judy!

    Oh I’m so envious… we once lived close to the sea. I could have stayed there forever.
