http://tempuri.org?link=newWe're Back! Our camping trip was no less than Spectacular! We packed the car the night before and headed out the next morning.. now you know we only camp 45 minutes down the road at Dreher Island State Park ...we
arrived at the park at 10:00 although check-in was not until 2:00! The nice folks behind the desk let us get the show on the road!
The entire camp was set up in record time! Jim and I have things down to a science when it comes to our camping vacations... he has his tasks and I have mine. Yep you guessed my tasks.. setting up the interior of the tent and the storing of the food!
While Jim's is sitting by the ,not yet built, fire and taking in the view! Well somebody has to do it, that gorgeous view ain't gonna watch itself!
Anyhoo... on to the point of the blog.. The Grub!
Onion Sausage and campfire potatoes
The food was amazing... I swear that cooking out of doors adds a litlle extra flavor to anything.. even the leftovers we brought home still taste of the fresh outdoors! Oh I forgot one of my favorite Camp fare.. The almighty
roasted Marshmallows!!! I don't know why... but those fluffy white pillows of sugar are absolutely Heaven when placed on a stick and held over a hot fire! Am I right?
Well we spent four glorious days and three very cold nights at our Little piece of paradise... doing pretty much nothing ! Recharging the old batteries and eating like royalty! Now we did laugh alot and we had our campside
dancing... we released several Chinese floating lanterns... without burning down the island!
All in All one of our best trips... We have already Booked our site and two others for a family camping trip with the boys and thier families... Gramma time with Molly and Damien, in April !
