Another camping trip over. Things did not go as planned,but then they usually don't. For starters someone had taken our favorite site on the ridge and so we ended up in the forest. I like the woods for short periods of time but to camp in them I tend to feel rather claustrophobic an end up feeling crushed after 3 days in them. Our batteries were dead and so it was like the old days of "real" camping with flashlights and lanterns. Lily was introduced to a hammock and watermelon I think the jury is still out on her opinion re: these things. We spent alot of time hiking in open areas, the flowers are lovely this time of year and so there was much to look at. It was a great get away different than planned but great just the same.
