Ann was off to Africa in May for a few weeks working on her African Children's Libraries project. While she was gone I continued keeping myself busy cutting weeds and brush that were threatening to consume the driveway and path down to the river. This project had kept me busy since February. It was time to take a break.

Heather was willing to take care of our dog McKenzie for a few days. So it was off to the Oregon Coast for some much needed rest and to get caught up on my writing. When at home there are always projects that need to be completed. It is easier to rest and relax away from home.

The U.S. Forest Service has a very nice campground called Tillicum that is located on the ocean side of Highway 101 on the Oregon Coast. There is a mix of ocean view and wooded campsites that are not close together like some campgrounds. Reservations are easy to make at the http://www.recreation.gov website.

This was the first official camping trip since we got the the new camper van and I was eager to see how the interior layout would work for us. In the previous camper we slept on the main level. The new van had the sleeping quarters located in the space created by the pop up roof. It was a little difficult to get up to the sleeping area however the foam mattress was much more comfortable that the one in the old van which made the climb worthwhile. In addition to the mattress the bed is longer than the one in the old which led to a good nights sleep.

My days were spent sitting on the beach watching and listening to the ocean, napping, and writing up our trips for the blog. Evenings were spent next to a fire reading and cooking dinner.

Till next time.
