A Weekend Outing


We took a trip to my cousin's camp over the weekend. I thought we would be there for a few hours, but instead ended up staying there way into the night.

 
 
No electricity, no water lines - but there was a neat outhouse. A mirror on the outside wall, a shelf with wash pan and towel - what more could you ask for. It is even lit up at night with a solar light.

My cousins and I went for a walk into the deep dark woods. Here we are at the bottom of the steep hill (which we had just climbed down) contemplating the path ahead of us.



Lots of neat woodland scenery along the way...

We had a fun time climbing beneath the rocks...




 

 We checked for snakes before posing for these pictures...

 
After our walk  in the woods, we climbed up the hill back to the camp. There was a campfire waiting for us.
 
 We all had a great time with family and friends. When darkness fell, we sat around the fire and told family ghost stories! A great way to end the day.

  4. Such a wonderful place for a family outing! Beautiful rock formations, covered with the moss, and how thoughtful to have the outhouse prepared for visitors.

  12. Looks like you had a great day! I don't blame you for checking for snakes, LOL~they are always my main concern when the temp is warm and I'm walking anywhere not completely cleared out!

    They certainly found a beautiful place to camp.

  13. Hi Janet, how fun! You look so vibrant and happy! What a lovely camp fire. I am hoping to go visit my niece's campsite next week and spend the day. She and a group of friends are going to camp along the beach on one of the islands just off shore. I am longing for a day outside in the fresh air and hearing the ocean again! Have a great evening ahead! Delisa :)

  15. Ooo, I love camping and being out in nature. What gorgeous pictures!

    My kids and I walked at a local park last week, and I stepped on a snake! Sometimes nature can be too nature-y, you know!

  18. Janet...
    I left a comment earlier about how we enjoyed it too. Somehow it showed up with the other "apron comments" I said maybe I need to blame it on the ghost here in the house...it is the new moon. Let's do it again...soon. We might have to bundle up this time and build a bigger campfire.
