Ah... Doran Beach. I have a love/hate relationship with this place. I love watching the kids play and explore the ocean and all that comes with it. I hate the foggy, windy conditions... I'm not much of a beach camper, I humbly admit to that.
We do have a great system down by now. Erina and I sleep in the back of the car, Brian and Grace sleep in a tiny igloo tent covered in a tarp.
And we pack tons of clothes for the girls, even though we only spend two nights there... camping close to the water makes for a lot of wet, cold, little campers =).
But in the end the love is greater... must be, otherwise I wouldn't agree to go back every year! Our camp is right inbetween the ocean and part of the bay. And the bay side is very shallow, which gives the kids a lot of freedom to roam.
And I get a lot of great photo opportunities!
Lots of seaweed... but the kids didn't mind at all!
We found lots of starfish and even a good sized crab!
My darling Erina... she seems to wear her food on her face all the time. Here she realized it and you get a good view of her dirty fingernails instead... he, he!
Foggy... foggy... foggy
And that's the end. Now I need to finish packing for our next camping trip. Yep, we're being very outdoorsy this season =)!
