We somewhat spontaneously joined friends over spring break for a few nights of camping at Edisto Beach State Park. It ended up being a really wonderful trip. The drive wasn't bad, the campground was blissfully quiet at night, the beach was a short bike trip away (and what fun it was to load down all the bikes and parade down the shoulder of the road to the beach!), there was delicious seafood very nearby, the weather was beautiful, we were with good friends......... a wonderful trip indeed.
Before we left, Claire packed a suitcase for her doll, Violet. She packed Violet's blanket and Violet's dolls, and tucked a few of her own things inside as well. And then she made 'activities' for Violet. You know, for the car ride. A maze, a coloring book......... so cute.
|I admit I'm not the biggest fan of these lights when used as holiday decor, but on our friends' camper? Very fun!|

|nothing like camping with several of your buddies for a few days, especially when you're an only child! She had a blast.|

|yumyumyum. I got oysters two days in a row. this plus some veggies was my dinner.|
|there was a couple who went around the campground blowing bubbles for the kids. they said their grandson loved them, so they figured other kids would as well. they were quite right about that.|
I could watch her dance and skip along the shoreline for hours. And she'll do it for hours too, whenever given the chance. This little girl loves the ocean and the salty air and the seashells as much as her mama does, I do believe.
|NOT our dog. But he is the cutest, cuddliest little thing and I so enjoyed his company.|

Until next time, salty sea air and sandy toes, ocean wave lullaby and seagull calls.
