Camping with the scouts

This weekend was the first scout camp for our new scout. We all went along to Sunset State Beach with about 20 other families.

The location was lovely, the campground is actually on sandy dunes behind the beach, so is sheltered from most of the wind, but close enough so we could hear the waves crashing on the shore.

Adjacent to the group camp site was a large area of trees and scrub, ideal for small boys rampaging around building camps, and traps, and climbing trees.



While we were there Adam did his frisbee badge!



Naturally there was also a barbeque and camp fire, compete with smores and campfire songs. Finlay is now word-perfect in "Take me down to the ball game"...so he's all set for next year when he can join cub scouts.

Not only did I get a chance to sit by the camp fire and knit - but I met another knitter!




Altho it rained on Saturday morning, by the time we got to the site it had cleared and the weather stayed fine for the rest of the weekend.

Wasn't the rain different? So long since it rained.
