it’s august, and we’re camping.

Monday, August 29, 2011


We bought our very first tent (yes, cute was a factor) and tagged along on a family camping trip to Malibu Creek State Park. The temperature was scorching inland at the campsite, so we headed to Zuma Beach for a glorious afternoon of sunshine and sea breezes. Hubs helped cook dinner, and my cousin made blackberry Mountain Dew cobbler in a dutch oven with coals (makes me wish I could have been a boy scout). We ended the weekend with a trip to Malibu Seafood and an evening showing of Guillermo Del Toro’s latest, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Even though our getaway was just a little over 24 hours, it felt like so much longer, as all getaways should.

Can’t wait to get some campsites booked up for next summer! Sleeping under the stars on summer nights is a dream.

What FUN! I am not much of a camper, but my fiancé and I wen ton one last year to Death Valley and just the other day I told him I kind of wanted to go camping again...which was a pleasant surprise to him! There are so many fun things and adventures about it! Looks like you had a wonderful time!

That looks so gorgeous!! My bf wants to camp in the fall, but I'm not sure if I'll like sleeping in sweaters and hats!
