Photo Friday: Sunrise

A blast from the past.
Watching the sunrise at Lake Perry in Kansas.

Another shot of the Sunrise over Perry Lake

My hubby introduced me to camping. I loved sleeping in a tent by the lake. I enjoyed smoked sausages and ramen for breakfast. I adored roasting marshmallows over the fire pit.

I don’t miss my graveyard shifts. I do miss watching the sunrise.

Daisy’s First Camping Trip

There will be pee.

Suzanne and Ryan introduced us to the campgrounds at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in Marin County. As always, we had a fantastic food spread on our picnic table.

Also, this was Daisy’s first camping trip.

100 Happy Days: Paws

Hungry paws left prints behind at our campsite. Suzanne and I thought our food would be safe on the picnic table.

We were wrong.

But first, I loved waking up under the tent’s “skylight.”

A 9-year-old sleeping bag kept us warm overnight.

It looks like raccoons visited us overnight.

100 Happy Days: Camping

I missed camping. I was so happy that Suzanne invited me to tag along on her camping adventure in Half Moon Bay.


It was lovely to find a campground that’s only 30 minutes away from my house.


I also loved pitching our tent next to the beach.

Photo Friday: First Light

I started waking up before sunrise, without an alarm, in Kansas.

My body couldn’t forget my graveyard shift schedule. That meant I didn’t miss sights like this one: a sunrise over Perry Lake in Kansas.

Our wedding gift from our co-workers still rocks. It still kept us warm and cozy on our overnight stay at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. Just like our first trip with it to Lake Perry in Kansas.

Our buddy Scott took care of the gourmet camp cuisine, just like our first camping trip in Scotts Valley. Mark sliced up the tri-tip.

The Great Outdoors

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.

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!
