Vacation Trip Number 3

Thursday, August 16, 2012

We went with our school group to a camp ground. The people we normally share a site with got a camper. When it started to rain, which it always does when we go camping, they were like, “We don’t have to do anything because we have a camper. We have no worries..” We still tent camp. Things had to be covered. Not only did we cover our stuff, we also go the chairs in out of the rain. Yes, the camper made it nice for them. It didn’t benefit us. Again that was fine, but since we are sharing the site, how about lending a hand?

We got to go out on a jet ski. We got to go out boating, and cliff jumping. They jumped I watched. Fun in the sun. I coughed so badly people we were worried. I had trouble catching my breath at times.

I spent one day just hanging out with my boy. We sat in the hammock rocking. We swam. We walked and talked.

We learned how to play Texas Holdem. My boy only bets big when he has something. The guy that taught us bluffs well and so do I. He, the teacher ended up with all the chips the first time. After that he had to work for it. ;) That was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it when we had 8 people playing at once. That was the best.

Over all it was a good trip. We had a new tent our site mates gave us. Sadly it only sleeps three not 4. My Hubby likes to sleep in the van so that works out I guess. Still it would be nice to have options. However this tent is light enough its easy for me to handle on my own. I can set up and take down myself. HOORAY!!! I normally have people around to help. But there may be a day I go out on my own again like I did when I was younger. I love to camp. I can’t always get people to go with. Its nice to be able to go alone. I’ve got to get better to make that happen.

I think the sun helped me to get better. The night air didn’t help much. But it was better than being home. I’ve been suffering with this neck ever since.

Now I think I’m all caught up.

    My hubby's idea of camping is staying in a hotel room. I would love to sleep under the stars, but it's just not in the cards for me. emoticon

    Well, just finished reading your recent blogs and have to say I loved all of the parts that made you happy and surely understood and appreciated the parts that left you, perhaps, a tiny wee bit frustrated. Still, what stood out to me, reading through these blogs, was your FINAL ATTITUDE, your very positive attitude, regardless of what you were describing about your health, your trip and your family, throughout each one - and that says a whole lot about you - A whole lot of good things about you!

    Wish I had time to write more. I really do, but for now, THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING your thoughts! It was fun reading about your vacation!
