Beach Camping

This last Easter weekend, I went camping at the beach with some friends.
We didn't have school on Thursday or Friday. Thursday I just took it easy, but I headed out on Friday in the early afternoon to Galveston. It took quite awhile to get over there because of traffic and waiting on the ferry.
Once we got out there, it got overcast. I liked it just because I didn't have to worry too much about getting sunburned. It was really nice weather - just a little windy. I like being able to see those oil rigs way out in the gulf.
It was so pretty with the little sandy hills out there.
There's been a drought around here so there was burn ban. Katherine purposefully didn't bring wood because of that, but the rangers said we could have a fire on the beach, so we gathered a bunch of driftwood. We had a pretty good fire.
Just a nice shot down the beach. A lot of that mossy stuff had washed up on the shore. There were jellyfish in there so we had to be careful where we walked.
There were a lot of seagulls around. Something I hadn't ever noticed was that there were Arctic Terns down there! Daniel Farmer is a bird buff and he spotted some. Cool beans!
Here he is feeding the birds. It was a great time. I only took pictures for a little bit, but we had some sun on Saturday. It was a beautiful day, just really windy. We found some dewberry bushes and had a nice little breakfast of them!
