time to think about camping!!!

It's that time of year again. The ground thaws, we change the clocks and have more daylight in the evening. The tress wake from their slumber and begin to show tiny green buds. Daffodils begin to join the crocus in a joyful morning greeting. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ and, in my family, the birth of a good portion of us.

On the tail end of this family birthday train is my birthday. We like to celebrate by going camping. It's a little early in the season, especially for tent campers like us, but if you head to the south your overnight temps are manageably low. Last year we headed WAY south, to St. Augustine, Florida. The state park was nearly deserted for our weekday trip and the beautiful expansive beach nearly ours alone. Feeling a bit nostalgic for that awesome trip, this year we're headed to Kiptopeke State Park at the western tip of the Delmarva Peninsula.

Kiptopeke is one of the few places on the east coast where the sun sets over the water, and if you're lucky, can even see the elusive green flash. The green flash is an experience I'm still chasing. I've listed all the details for this awesome trip on our Camperino site. Maybe some of our camping buddies will join us on this trip??
