Every morning I go to work, I pass by the Crystal Springs Reservoir off of 280 South.
Some mornings, you can see the stillness of the water and reflection of the morning sun off its surface. Other mornings, fog/mist lingers over the water and crawls over the hills surrounding it. Whether it’s sunny or not, the sight is amazing and makes me want to pitch a tent and camp the weekend somewhere.
I haven’t been camping in a long time. B and I usually go every year at least once. We haven’t gone since The Kid was born. We went once when I was pregnant, which wasn’t so bad except I was probably six or seven months and slept like crap that weekend. Other than the whole “I can’t sleep” thing, it was okay!
B and I enjoy camping. I love the smell of outdoors, of waking up to freezing temps outside, campfires, hikes. Ooo, I love the hikes! A backpack, extra clothes, water, food and a sturdy walking stick… You never know where you’ll end up! Just don’t get lost – that would suck!
I hope we can go camping sometime this year. Even if it’s just to Memorial County Park for a weekend. I’d love for The Kid to enjoy camping as much as we do.
Here’s to hoping we pitch a tent somewhere in the middle of no-man’s-land this year!
