our floating campsite

Yesterday we sailed to a (very close by) quiet cove and anchored for the night. The kids fished, dad cooked and the baby fussed a bit in the pleasant evening breeze.
We watched the sun go down and listened to the kids giggling as they went to bed in the cabin, excited about this new adventure called sleeping on the boat. The night was quiet and still. There was one bout of baby crying but not one moment of "get me out of here".
This morning, the sun rose over glassy waters we could bounce bubbles on. It was peaceful and perfect. No one was crying. We felt no rush to go home.
We kind of thought we were crazy when we decided to try our little camp out and we decided we most definitely were crazy as we were packing up gear and kids and heading out the door. But it worked. We had fun.
Call us crazy but we will definitely be doing this again.

    I love the bubbles on the water! I'm so glad it was a great first overnight experience on "The Summer Wind"!

  5. What a terrific way to build your family memory album! Lex and I often reflect on some of our pop-up-camper-days, pulling into Yosemite National Park and finding a spot at mid-night! Can you believe we were that adventuresome?.lv d
