Holiday Weekend!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and weekend. We went camping, but spent more than  half the time, on the go, but lots of fun and relaxing and of course, Bean was the happiest, he loved camping, playing and visiting new places.

We had a nice site, open view to the salt water marsh and inlet and plenty of grass for Bean to roam around on. He was really good on this trip, but on the first night he was sick and we spent all night taking him out to go. I think he got too much salt water and beach objects into his mouth.

Sitting by the fire and looking out at the marsh was the perfect spot for relaxing.

We had a few larger grassy areas for Bean to play and it wasn't crowded, so he could play without his leash.

We visited the lighthouse and walked along the beaches and enjoyed the views from the hilltop.

On the other side, views of the lighthouse.

A little relax time to just enjoy the tranquil sounds of the ocean.

We also took Bean to another beach where he invented a new game, clam shell rolling. He loves to push rocks around on the beach, clams were more fun. And not a good idea since he probably got sick from all this fun;)

On the road next to our campground, is a bird sanctuary with nesting boxes for the Ospreys. This pair has made quite the nest, from found objects. Which of these things are not a common nesting item?

To end the first night, we had a beautiful sunset. We didn't have to go anywhere, we just climbed up the hill and watched it go down and then enjoyed the afterglow from the campsite. Since this post could go on, I will stop here and share the last two days with you, on Wednesday. I hope you enjoyed some of our adventures this weekend.

We haven't been camping in many years. It was always enjoyable when we did.
