Last weekend, I went to Ocean Shores for a camping trip with my friend Anne. I hadn’t been camping in a few years, which is pretty crazy for me. When I was growing up, my parents would load us up in the van (4 kids), hook up the camper and we would head off. We visited so many parks in Utah, Wyoming, Arizona, and Colorado. I am really thankful that my folks had us do this as kids because I still love the outdoors, camping and traveling so much, it’s just ingrained in me. Although I am sure as a kid, and especially as a teenager I would pout about it. I haven’t headed out for a long road trip in some time, but I really would like to. I did drive to Chicago twice in my twenties though.
Anyway, Ocean Shores was so much fun. I would highly recommend it. The beach was beautiful, and the campground at Ocean City, except for one crazy night, was pretty quiet. The town of Ocean Shores is so close to the campground that if you want you can go to the little theater, bowling alley, go go-kart racing or ride horses on the beach. We stuck to going to the Sand & Sawdust Festival, where you could see people participate in either a chainsaw carving or sandcastle competition. We also ate at the cutest little Moby Dick’s drive in, where we had delicious chowder and fish ‘n chips.
Hope you enjoyed the photos and have a great 4th!
