Weekend Fun for 8, 9, &10

Summer days 8, 9, and 10 were spent on our annual group camping trip. If you are curious about this tradition of ours, you can read a couple different posts I’ve done about it using this link.

We returned to Shawme Crowell State Forest on Cape Cod for this year’s trip. We arrived on Friday afternoon with relatively few traffic hassles, which is always a nice bonus.

We set up our tent in the sunshine and enjoyed a beautiful, rain-free weekend.

A short exploration of one of many trails in the state park started our day on Saturday.

That was followed with lunch at a local seafood place and an afternoon at the beach by the canal.

It was a beautiful, relaxing weekend spent with great people.

Our dogs even came home from the doggie-spa (kennel) fresh and clean!

  2. I am so glad you had such nice weather down here. We haven’t had that much warmth yet and the nights have been chilly. Looks like you had a great beach day too.

    • Probably some of the nicest camping weather we’ve had. Friday night was definitely on the chilly side tho! I got up Saturday morning and got a Box o Joe from Dunkin for everyone to warm up!
