Chris and I love camping. I don’t consider myself a girly girl, but I do love makeup and beauty products. So I decided to put together a girl’s guide to camping! I know a lot of women that would
We decided to hike the trail around the Cliff Pond. It is listed as 3.2 miles so we estimated that it would take us an hour or two. That’s about the same distance as a 5k and you can walk that in about
We spend all day at Cliff Pond. Can you tell why we picked this campground? We floated in the lake all day and did a little fishing practice 🙂 and avoided the complications of the local beaches. We
We headed to Jo Mamas for breakfast. On their logo the â€˜o’ is a coffee bean which helps explain their selection, they have coffee and bagels and also bagel sandwiches. We each grabbed a bagel sandwich
We headed back to the pond for an evening swim and pretty much had the beach to ourselves. There were a few hikers and people coming to swim a little but the place was basically all ours for most of the
When we got back to the campground we decided it would be a good idea to take a nap. We had to put some things away first and were busy doing that when we discovered that James had started his nap early.
Finally we found a parking lot for the beach, there was a booth at the entrance so probably a fee but we wanted to see the beaches so we pulled in to find out what the rules were. Before we could ask
We slept in and decided to find a place for breakfast. Ideally we were looking for waffles but that wasn’t so easy to find. Instead we found a place called Cake for Breakfast which was a little pastry
After dinner we headed back to the campsite for a campfire and to wind down. James was chilly from being wet so we put him on his bed and threw his blanket on him to warm him up.
The poor guy was
After getting cleaned up a bit from the pond we headed to Cobies. It was just outside of the park so it was probably the closest restaurant anyway. We were hoping for out door seating and lucky for us
Back at Cliff Pond for the afternoon we were enjoying the clear water and the sunshine. James was fetching his ball farther and farther out and having a blast. I still hadn’t pulled out the fishing
We decided to head to Provincetown at the end of the cape. We had heard it was a really neat place to visit and that they had some good restaurants so we planned to have lunch up there. The drive was
We woke up early because the sun was up and nobody else was. This was the time to walk around the park and head to Cliff Pond because we would have it all to ourselves. The water was really cold but
Somewhere in the dark, in the middle of the night not too far from our tent it was quietâ€¦ very very quiet. Too quiet. I was awake but I wasn’t sure why, and did I mention it was quiet? Well not
For my birthday I got a FLIR camera for my iPhone, I’ve played with it around the neighborhood but this was my first chance to actually capture some wildlife with it and man did we have some wildlife
After setting up our tents we hiked down to Cliff Pond, just in time for the sunset. It was fantastic. This was well worth the drive and why we chose to re-visit this campground for this trip.
We arrived at our campsite just before 7:00 pm making the official drive time almost exactly 12 hours. Looks like a really nice estimate from Sandra once again. Now it is time to set up our tents, we
As we left the Bass Pro we spotted a float with circus animals on it. Then another float full of people. We decided to look it up, obviously there was some sort of parade today and it shouldn’t be
We left Georgetown around 7 am for what looked like an 8 hour drive. Sandra estimated 12 based on stops for food, gas and a trip to the Bass Pro Shop in Bridgeport, Connecticut. James love to swim and
We are about to head to Cape Cod for a week of camping in Nickerson State Park and we are often asked how we can pack so little when traveling so I want to show you our method. Last year when packing
