:: Cama Beach ::

Last weekend, we - along with some couple-friends of ours, rented a beach bungalow at Cama Beach State Park on Camano Island. The bungalow, originally built in the 1930's was at the very end of the park, tucked into a quiet little spot right on the waterfront. Here was our view from the front porch:

Our time was spent playing games, eating yummy crockpot meals such as chili, chicken curry with rice, and bbq pulled pork sandwiches, playing more hilarious games late into the night, walking along the beach, visiting the Fall Festival, painting t-shirts and eating caramel apples, playing bocci ball, knitting (robin), reading, and a whole lot of laughing. The cabin was warm, cozy, and soothing to my tired self. I didn't want to leave! I had a great time reconnecting with my husband, bonding with the girls, and just enjoying a break. Ryan and I took a little hike to Cranberry Lake, which ended up being a swampy marsh. And I learned about Phosphorescence, which is when the water glows when it is disturbed. It was a beautiful place to be at this time of year with the changing trees and crisp cold air. I can't wait to go back.
