We packed a bunch into our day near Florence…
We started out his morning at 6 am searching for wildlife, and we caught a juvenile fox and three beavers. Then we came back to camp feeling pretty accomplished.😎 I just love seeing animals early in the morning, I get super pumped! Then Ryan tried his luck surfing while I posted my photo blog…here.
Then we all headed down to the beach and I watched boats and seal lions while the boys played on the beach. It was a beautiful day, but windy!
We had a quick lunch, and headed back to camp for a sidewalk chalk contest, which even Ryan and I took part in. It was actually super fun! Unfortunately we did not bribe the judges enough… no one in our family one a prize. 😏
Then we had dinner the kids got ready to watch Coco at the lodge. They had a blast today and have been going nonstop all day! They should pass out pretty fast tonight(in theory).
We didn’t see anything too exciting after our morning photos, we saw a small snake cross our trail on a hike, 2 little frogs in the lagoon, a salamander swimming along the bottom of it and one blue heron swooped in over the lagoon but never landed. One nice thing about seeing the snake… the boys let me lead the way after that. Thank you to the snake! 🐍
Leasing a site
We love this campground so much Ryan and I have been considering s lease option for the next year which would allow us to keep our RV on our own site all year. This would make coming over for the weekend a breeze! Sometimes when we get out of town late, we’re scrambling to find a good site and it sometimes adds a little bit of stress to the trip.
It was fun going through the whole campground looking at each site and seeing which ones were our favorite. Some were really wooded which wouldn’t get much sun and might effect internet service and I’d probably worry about the tall trees during winter when it tends to be super windy.
Also we wanted to be close to the lodge where the kids tend to spend a great deal of their time. We are trying to decide still…. it’s a big decision for us!
How did you make the most of your Saturday? Did you finish a great book, have a bbq, or maybe check out a festival? I ❤️ Hearing about it!
