The Great Outdoors

June 29th, 2010

When I was scheduled to work on a Sunday, I decided to make the most out of my short weekend. So, my hubby and I tagged along on a camping trip to Scotts Valley.

Start the reactor
Our camping partners, Scott and Catalina, showed us how to enjoy the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park in style.

This marked our first camping trip since Perry Lake. For this weekend, Scott and Catalina helped us expand our dining options from instant ramen to fresh pancakes.

Yum!
Pancake Batter!


By the way – that Coleman grill/stove rocked! I want one!

Mark invested in some comfy camping pads and I slept deeply under the stars. A hefty spray of Bug-off stopped the mosquitoes from turning us into a midnight snack.

The next day, we explored Santa Cruz and visited the Bonny Doon Tasting Room. I enjoyed a flight wine and raised a silent toast to Bonny Doon’s winemaker. I met Randall Grahm last year at a Twitter/wine event in Sonoma.

Good Morning Scotts Valley
So far, it’s been busy in the newsroom. Other people’s vacations/sick days give me plenty of things to cover in Sacramento. I can handle all the overtime as long as I have something to look forward to on the weekend, like another camping trip.

Next time, I want to share the tent with Daisy. Fellow campers….beware.

Alright Facebook/RSS buddies – don’t forget to check out the blog post for a pretty Flickr slideshow on our camping trip.

Share and Enjoy
