These are the Days.

Oh, the excitement of camping… setting off for somewhere new.
Our little family of four… together… exploring… sharing… making memories. Up the Southern Californian coast this time to a breathtakingly beautiful beach called El Capitan, just outside of Santa Barbara.
So many beautiful moments…
Breathing smoke like dragons into the cold, early-morning air.
Our misty morning view from our camper’s window.
Drawing pretty pictures while waiting for breakfast.
Reading many chapters of Little House on the Prairie.
Hours of playing on the pebbled beach.
Finding treasures from the sea.
Saving creatures from the land.
More than once.
Collecting wonders of nature.
Enjoying special moments.
Discovering life on the rocks.
And moss from the sea.
Noticing the colors of the pebbles.
Spotting dolphins.
And, topped off with a S’more or two!

These are the days, my friends!

Blessings and magic.
