i shouldn't be, but i am (and remember to enter my blogoversary giveaway)

being online while camping isn'tactually something i like to do. it just seems wrong to be sitting under canvas in the middle of a camp ground all wired up to the outside world. yes, we take care of ourselves luxury-wise while camping (powered up, waffles, fresh bread, cold wine and beers etc etc), but i'd actually prefer to be totally cut off from the outside world.

i was very disappointed to discover there was '5 bars of coverage' when we got here. (at our last campground, you had to stand on one foot on one particular sand dune to send a text) - and that's the way i liked it. i hated it when anyone brought a paper from the store and started reading the news out loud). i was happy just to CAMP.

anyhoo - we're having a fabby time. this connection is laboriously slow which is why i haven't been online (hubs has only been using this laptop to upload pics and check the weather). it's been sunny and hot; i've biked 72 km (over 4 trips) and this new campground has wonderful amenities; and i've already taken over 300 photos!

miss 10 turns 11 tomorrow. tara is making french toast, and i'm making waffles. hubs and i are taking the birthday girl out for lunch, then it's a combined birthday dinner with cake and a bonfire on the beach. bliss.

blogger doesn't seem to have picked up on my blogoversary post, so check it out below and enter away!!!
