Winter Camping

Last Wednesday night we had a heavy winter snow, Mother Nature kindly added a row to my earth loom. With a sprinkling of stars tumbling down, it was beautiful.
This picture showed up better on my camera, but you get the idea.

My husband and I left Thursday for a long weekend of nature and solitude at our local State Park. It was quiet and wonderful. The only thing we did was hike, eat, sleep, read and I quilted, a lot. Perfect.

When we went out in the morning we found there had been a party around our camper during the night. Deer,


and raccoon prints were everywhere.

We hiked through the woods and into the dunes.

This moss stays emerald green all winter.

At the top of the dunes,

a quick photo, there was a very cold wind blowing off the water.

The waves were high.

Crackers, cheese and shrimp for supper.

Then out to watch the sunset.

It was so cold but worth it.

Following the Lake home.
