Turns out we were so close to the Canadian border that our phones thought we were in BC. It turned out to be a great blessing to have a no-technology weekend! We talked, laughed, ate great food, built fires, hiked and well...they say a picture's worth a thousand words, so why am I writing all this? Take a look for yourself:
Isaac was so awesome: he set up the tent in record time, then arranged the inside so we had quite a cozy little nest! He gave me the full length mat (love you, husband!) and slept on the too short mat. What a guy! We also inherited my parents' REI sleeping bags that are older than we are and still work so well! And bonus: they zip together to form a nice, roomy sleeping bag! No more sleep-clausterphobia!!
My man cooking camp style! Then he got the fire going (this picture doesn't do it justice), and read to me by lantern-light! :) (And it was The Princess Bride! I love this man!)
Hot cocoa and then freshly perked coffee started the morning off right! Then it was off to see the sights! And such lovely ones we found - up high, down at the shore, and everywhere in between. It's important to stay hydrated kid-style. I submit that one is never too old to rock the Capri Sun!
We had some tide pool adventures! I'd never stuck my finger into an anemone before. Those things have a grip! We had such fun exploring, then it was off to climb stuff, jump off stuff, and get lost a few times...
Yep, this is the main bridge at Deception Pass and yes, I did in fact cross it on foot multiple times...while maintaining a steel grip on Isaac's arm...but I made it! I admit I was pretty weak in the knees when we reached about the 30% point until we hit about 85% across and the end was nearby again. That is one looooong bridge! But what an adventure!
This was our first, but will not be our last, camping trip!
