{hi ho...Hi HO...it's off to camp we go}

{our camping dishes are packed}

{our ocean beach front is waiting for us}


{our favourite place in the world to camp is calling our name}
yes we tent...my husband would not have it any other way
now if it was up to me I would be in at least a five star trailer
oh well I'm a good sport about it all...seeing he does all the camp cooking




off to DeceptionPass on Whidbey Island for a few days
....see you soon

Enjoy your trip - hope the weather cooperates! I'm so not a camper but admire those hardy souls who do.

Hello Koralee .. If I my hubby did all the cooking I would go camping to. But to be honest, we hardly see each other in the year, with him travelling for his job and staying in good hotels ,, I think staying in good apartments is my treat... :-)

Enjoy and have a fabulous time. It looks wonderful .. :-)

Celestial Charms said...

Wow, camping in a tent sounds like a great idea. Mind you, I wouldn't want to do it for more than a weekend ;). I don't think I would survive past that. However, I'm sure it will create wonderful memories to cherish. Have fun!

Martina said...

Hi Koralee, wow, have a great time! I know what you mean about camping. I love parts of it, but then can't really sleep in a tent. Yet it's so important, to reconnect to nature once in a while. And it's fun to cook outside and feel wild and free. Enjoy your trip and take some pix!

Anne Marie said...

oh please document the trip!! we ONLY tent camp - and to be on the seashore? would be lovely!!

have a great time!!!!
xo+blessings,
Anne Marie

That all sounds so wonderful, except for the tent! I am definitely a 5 star camper-type too, but sometimes we sacrifice for the good of all. :) Hee hee

Hi Koralee,

But I love going into the woods and smell all the smells and see all the beauty. Beaches are hours and hours away from here, so you are blessed. have a lovely time dear one. It sounds like a blast.

Very beautiful camp!!! :) I just posted some camping pics as well. And..yes, we camped in a tent (even though the wind picked up overnight and we thought we were going to fly off to the Land of Oz!!).
Have a fun-filled time!
blessings to you,
Gloria

Laura Marcella said...

I love those camping dishes!

I'm a camping girl, too! My family and I have camped all over the U.S. When I was really little, we always had a tent, but then when we got older we got a pop-up camper. Still tent-like, but a bit more comfortable during rain!

Have a wonderful time!!!

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

Ooh, Deception Pass! That sounds like a wonderful place to start a camping habit! Hope you all have a lovely time! xox

nerines said...

Oh, you are a good sport! We haven't been camping for a while...It get's raised now and then...I've tried to suggest it be an all boy's trip but it's met with protests of "But you love it!" I love being with them, that's true, But I would really love to hear all about it when they got back too;) xo

pollydove said...

I am SOOOOO needing sun and sand right now, I can't even tell you! So I'm a little bit envious. I do LoVe a man who camps and cooks - as long as he also sets up and cleans up! :)

Could your polka dot "tin" be any cuter! ENJOY! xoxo

Claudie said...

Oh I used to pass there all the time when we drove the Chuckanuk Drive
I think that's how you spell it. My hubby and I would leave all 3 kids with our fav babysitter, and head to Port Townsend. We LOVED crossing that pretty bridge and beach. I walked the trail once, but never camped out.
Have a wonderful time Koralee. Hang on to as much summer as you can.
Love Claudie
xoxoxo

Marilyn said...
