Two years since we went camping, how can that be? Oh, well, it just means I can keep this goal on my list. Camping at Douthat State Park was great. We stayed at the Lakeside Campground, with the small lake shimmering in the afternoon sunlight just a few feet from our campsite. We had our usual Bratwurst cooked over the campfire, followed, predicatably and perfectly by s’mores. And the fire was great. And the sound of children’s voices, so excited by the new friends they were making, the fish they were catching, the salamandars they were discovering. The weather was perfect and the sky was amazing when we snuck out of our tent at 2 a.m. to watch the meteor shower. This was definitely a good camping trip. Maybe one day, we will actually go for 2 nights!

So far, this is our favorite place to camp. The trip to the park is a leaf-peepers dream, the weather was perfect and we got the best site (#21 for those of you who might want to camp there)! We are still pretty new to camping (it’s one of the things neither of us did before we met so it became one of the things that would be part of us together) so we have lots to learn. We have gotten really good at getting the tent set up but we need to work on our campfire cooking skills. We have agreed to stay for two nights next year (part of my mission to see a moose) and we may try to get in a night somewhere here in VA before it gets too cold this year.
