Our first camping trip out this year was very adventurous. On our first night at the site we had to survive an impending thunderstorm. While we went out for dinner (and to stay dry during the storm) our tent came out of the stakes and flew up a tree. Tents DO FLY! Our nice camping neighbors grabbed our tent and held it down with the picnic table while we were out. One thing about camping is everyone is always looking out for each other, it is so wonderful!! We were fortunate that my mom lives close by and we were able to bunk with her during the night.
We made day trips to the camp site and where we were still able to enjoy good camp cooking, fires, the beach, and all the other things that camping has to offer. Just not staying in the tent. LOL!
