A Relaxing Mini Vacation?

We left on Tuesday with the 5th wheel for Shoal Bay, the local park. The mornings and late evenings were quite pleasant. But the middle of the day was very, very warm. 

I did not take any sewing with me--only reading material. So I spent most of my time there reading. I did watch a few movies on DVD.

This was the view from our camping spot. There were only a dozen or so campers so it was very quiet and peaceful.

Love the playground. Of course, we don't use it any longer. lol  But when our children were young, we would get the spot next to the playground so they could play and we could stay at the campground and watch them.

Then as they got to be teens and took along two or three friends each, they would ride their bikes playing shadow tag and we kept up with them through walkie talkies. Those were the days.

This bird (bluejay) was around the whole time we were there. It was funny watching it frolic in the trees. At one time, it tried to land on a limb but missed and fell down to the next branch.

We returned home around noon today. It was a very relaxing time.

Now, hopefully I will be ready to get busy on all of my sewing projects.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. camping has changed during the years hasn't it. Our kids to would go to the playground and then it was riding bikes. Now we go by ourselves and read, hike,play with computers, watch DVD's and sit and enjoy the quite.
    I haven't been to that campground - we will need to try it out sometime.

  2. I grew up camping...tent camping! Never really enjoyed it, but we didn't have the money to do all the Disney vacations or resort things. I knew that it was more work on my mother. My dad loved camping. I jokingly tell that my part of the wedding vows said,"and never camping". We built a sunroom addition to our house last year. I really enjoy sitting out there and watching nature. The mosquitoes don't bite and I can move inside at any time.
