Our house is the one on the right with the palm tree… can’t see it well, I know. Anyway, we met up with some friends and drove out of town for about an hour. Then we went off the freeway, let down our tires, and headed off into the sand dunes 🙂
Cameron had a specific spot in mind – the tallest dune in the range. So with the help of the gps and heading in the right general direction, we found a place to camp – behind this huge sand dune in a hollow protected from the wind.
While I worked very hard on my ‘Tis the Season stitchery, the boys contemplated the tent:
Not quite sure what they were thinking, but eventually they got it up 🙂 Now, can you see that little peak behind the boys? It is really, really, really high. Trust me. It is. Here, let me show you a bit more….
Cameron decided he’d drive up to see how far he’d get:
Here you can see our little campsite from the top of the dune:
As you can see, we were in the middle of nowhere 🙂 It was very quiet and peaceful… until some young hoons came to play on the biggest dune with their quad bikes! Boys will be boys everywhere in the world, and they spent quite some time showing off for us. I should have taken some photos, but we were trying not to encourage them 🙂 Thankfully they eventually left us in peace.
We had a lovely bbq, and camp fire, and roasted marshmallows. Fun and yum!
The next morning we had a relaxed brecky and pack up. As we were driving out of our little sheltered spot, we bumped into these:
So that was our first camping trip and probably the last of the season since it is already warming up. This weekend we had a sand storm and thunder storm, so good thing we went last weekend!
Oh, I brought back a bag of sand to use in my sewing projects 🙂 Handy living in a desert!
Weekend for all of you tomorrow, so have a good one!
