Beach Camping: San Elijo State Beach




For a few years now, we have been camping at the beach in the non-winter seasons. At first I tried to be a regular happy outdoorsy camper type person. But with the kiddos, diapers and the dog, the inside of a tent (sitting in a plot of dirt) can get pretty yucky.

So for my 30th birthday we bought a vintage camper and fixed it up and now camping at the beach is so much fun!!

It is a time for the kids to ride their bikes/scooters, boogie board,

 

make drip castles,



play a little frisbee,



be wave ninjas,




 

or mermaids,



eat PB and J,



hang out with friends around the campfire,






 make silly faces,


 


eat s'mores




and to be lulled to sleep by the sound of waves crashing.






They have a little shop where you can buy firewood, necessities and other fun stuff like Zinkas. We are trying to get a new color every time we go. They also have warm showers and toilets.

When we get tired of cooking we like to take wagon trips outside of the campground to VG's (the awesome local bakery).







Good times!



 

Salty Air.









 Amazing sunsets!

 
Looking forward to more beach camping this year when it is a little bit warmer!

Summer is coming!!!

  1. I am so happy for you, your husband, and the kids. I have read your book and followed your posts for some years now and I am so glad that you and your husband are free from the cult. I was involved with the cult for too long myself after having been introduced to it by my mother and life is so much better and more meaningful without having to deal with all the Scientology crap.

  5. My Lifestraw personal filter and I go back a long time. This was the first ever portable filter in the market that has been awarded extensively. Well, the product is excellent and very cost-effective. It is sturdy and filters the smallest pathogen so you can be sure of it's safety. I appreciate this a lot and it's one of the things that I don't leave home without.
