#10. Go beach camping.
There really isn’t anything better
than falling asleep to the crashing of waves.
I tried to take it all in,
the crisp air, the clear stars, and the soothing sound of the ocean.
Growing up, I didn’t spend a ton of time camping
so I can’t say I know all of the tricks of the trade
or even how to plan the ‘perfect camping trip.’
However, this was seriously everything I wanted
this idea of “beach camping” to be.
Though the weather wasn’t our ideal of perfection
(it sprinkled on and off throughout our stay)
it called for a little more creativity and resulted in a little more fun.
We spent most of our time either walking by the shore
or glued to the radio listening to the baseball madness
of the San Francisco Giants and Oakland A’s Game 4s
as well as the Sacramento Kings first preseason game.
We played cards, cooked delicious food, and enjoyed tons of laughs.
It says a lot to me when you can spend your time with just one person
and never feel like you need some “alone time.”
This was our fifth camping trip,
but our first one with just us.
And I’d have to say it was one of my favorites.
Brighton State Beach,
thanks for making my first beach camping experience
a good one to remember
and one I hope I get to relive and revisit sometime again.
