We went to Doran Beach (by Bodega Bay) for a weekend camp trip. It can be a cold, foggy and windy place and I was a bit worried since we are faithful tent campers. We did this two years ago an I was miserable!!! Brian had the wonderful idea that I could sleep in the back of our minivan with Erina (the other sissy in the family, lol) and he would sleep in a small dome tent with Grace.
It worked out perfect... yes, it was overcast and cool, but not too windy and I was able to sleep (which means less grumpiness in the daytime!). The kids had such a wonderful time. They ate powdered donuts for breakfast, skimmed the low tide beach for clams & hermit crabs and even swam in the cold ocean. All in all a wonderful weekend spent with great friends.
