Camping trip


Last weekend, Denis and I went camping with my coworkers. There were 7 families represented from our staff and we had a really lovely time. We went to Bullard's Beach State Park near Bandon, Oregon. Some people had RVs and were in one section of the campground. Others, including us, rented yurts. We would have taken our tent, but thought that we would be a bit chilly in October.

We had lovely weather, good food and good company. On Saturday, a group went out in a boat and caught 7 crab that we boiled up for dinner. A second group went on a 17 mile bike trip (sore bums the next day) and Denis and I joined yet a third group to visit the tourist-friendly downtown area. There were lots of unique shops to look in. We also visited the lighthouse pictured above. We all had a wonderful time and are already talking about where we can go next year.

Those yurts look neat! I've never heard of them before. It sounds like a trip I would love!

Maybe I should have my hubby build me a yurt in the backyard. (ha, ha) They look like something I saw in a movie about a family in Mongolia. This family lived in a house that looked like that and raised some kind of sheep or goat. Anyway, I don't really need a yurt in my backyard, but they do look like a cool place to stay for a weekend.

That picture was borrowed from the internet. But I will replace it soon with one that Denis took.
