Camping in Julian, CA

Julian, CA, is one of our favorite camping spots.

We stay in a campsite that has a little pond. Teddy loves to fish.

We wake up early to fish, when the shadows are long and the light is golden.

Kitty isn’t much of a fisherlady. But, I did catch her saluting the sun.

Autumn in Julian is exaggerated by the drought and the countryside was vivid shades of orange, yellow and tan.

Julian is also home of the Apple Pie. Oh my… did we eat pie!

And, when the day ends, the children look like camping children should… tired and dirty and happy.

Here’s to these happy camping days we share together. How very precious they are.

 

 

Here are some of our other camping trips.

 

Blessings and magic,

Donni, these are the cutest little witches I ever did see. I just found your website and so far have lost myself in your inspirational posts and crafts. Still new to Waldorf, my eyes are bigger than saucers, beaming with the endless creativity and learning that there is to be had!

Thank you for sharing these plump, festive darlings with us. Your shop is beautiful and I look forward to following you on your creative adventures.

Thanks all for playing along :-)

Good luck too.

Blessings and magic,
