Just got back from an eight night camping trip to beautiful Hunting Island State Park near Beaufort, South Carolina. I have always loved camping. And we are real campers–that means tents, and in this case no electric hook-up.

Now this tent is a palace and my husband, Michael, is wonderful to camp with, so organized, all I have to do is pack the linens and towels. But this trip laid us low… Temps in the high 90s during the day, only about 80 degrees at night and high humidity.

The only thing that made it bearable was the beautiful water–80 degrees and a wonderfully changing surf with two high and low tides per day. Michael enjoyed hunting for shark’s teeth every morning; he found over a hundred during our seven day stay.

But frankly, we were in survival mode most of the time. The heat limited our enjoyment of the wonderful seafood. But we had our favorite fried dill pickles at the MoonDoggies Cafe in Port Royal, wonderful crab cakes at Boondocks, and incredible shrimp and flounder at The Shrimp Shack.

So are our camping days over? No way, we set off for northern Michigan in seven days! And this trip will be graced with the awesome trifecta of daughter Sadie, and her friends, Katie and Zoe.
