In camping life lately photography travel wild

Finding perfection in middle of caos

Last week was my birthday (yay!) and I was keen into going camping with my family. I love camping, it has been part of my life since my teenager years and I want it to continue to be part with my husband and daughter for years to come.

To me is a time to wind down from daily routine and just be in connection with nature is pure perfection. I am not going to lie, it is pretty hard and almost impossible for me to completely turn off all my electronics (read here phone) but still a good out of civilization option to have time for ourselves.

Our camping is, in majority of the cases, primitive where we can get to use what we brought only and we need to make ends meet when we forget basics. This past trip we forgot salt and butter for our cooking and having dinner and breakfast with no salt or butter had to do. 

I appreciate it the most because it forces us, and specially our child, to not be picky and to adapt to most situations. Life is not perfect and sometimes we need to have a way to see things with different lenses.

But we found this pretty place by accident. We had everything plan to leave and work got into the way making us leave a day later than expected.
We are all ready to leave in the morning on time, arrive in campsite with plenty of time to enjoy the day only to find out we have booked the wrong location.

No biggie, we move to the new location to realize it was a complete dump. In the middle of a bad part  of the town and there was no way we would spend 3 nights there. Within seconds I am on the phone searching for another campsite already thinking it will be impossible to find since we are in Memorial Day weekend in a high searched area.

After a few turn downs, we found place in Lake Aire, a few minutes from Charleston, and boy! can I say we lucked out. Campsite right on a "lake"with plenty of privacy and close to the city and on the way to the beach. The staff of the campsite was super sweet and accommodated us right away.

We were right on that peninsula you see on the map, where T6 is shown. Virtually no one to bother or to be bothered by.
