Our Vacation, Days 1-2

When we arrived we immediately realized that we had had Yurt F the last time we were at Tugman State Park. It was really funny to realize that out of the 16 yurts that are there we had been assigned the same one again!

The first day we pretty much got there, hung around the yurtsite, made dinner and a fire, then went to bed. The next morning we headed out to Sunset Bay State Beach. It was fantastic! We got there at low tide so we could explore the easily accessible tidepools, then we spent the afternoon at the little sandy beach next to the tide pools. The waves were one foot high and the water was nice and warm. We hadn't expected to go swimming, but we improvised pretty well!

One reason we really like Tugman State Park is that it has a nice little lake walking distance from the campground called Eel Lake. There's a nice little sandy beach with shallow water that is perfect for the kids to float around in and swim. We went there in the afternoons.

Well that was Day 2. Then back to the yurt for dinner and another campfire. Everyone slept great. Hooray! Avi wanted nothing to do with his portacrib, however, so he ended up happily sleeping curled up right next to mama.

To be continued...

what cute kids. Looks like a beautiful place. The kids must have loved waking up to running in the water and just exploring. pqzsc
