camping 

Prompt: Have you ever been camping? Tell us about a memorable trip.
My first camping trip with my husband is one I'll never forget. I had been on a family trip to Kentucky without him and called him each day telling him how I was so exhausted from the trip that I would need a "vacation from my vacation." Being the sweetheart he is he decided to plan a surprise camping trip for us when I got back to Florida.

One problem! He forgot to check the weather and even worse he forgot to check to make sure his camping gear was in good condition. Needless to say the night we went to Ginnie Springs there was a torrential downpour and we woke up in a huge puddle of water because the tent had several holes in it from wear and tear over the years. The next morning we rung out our clothes and promptly hopped in the car and went home.

Luckily, he made it up to me with another camping trip at Blue Lake Park and we swam with manatees and had a wonderful time. Weather report for that weekend? Dry and sunny!

  1. Last time I went camping, we left the top off the tent so that we could fall asleep under the stars. We woke up in the morning to a sudden shower of rain on our faces!

  2. Boy! We've been there/done that! Even when you do remember to check the weather, it can surprise you! Glad you survived that disastrous trip.
