Watching the Sunrise in our sunset
For the fourth weekend in a row, it was time for another camping trip. This time, we were headed to nearby Lake Wateree State Park in South Carolina! And was it pretty...
Parked at Poinsett
When we started out this year, I made it my goal to book as many trips as I could for free weekends. Cameron and I prefer to be away from the world in our camper whenever we can, so I filled our calendar with little trips at the beginning of 2021.
This weekend it was Poinsett State Park. It was 2.5 hours down in South Carolina, which normally is nothing, however my work had a spontaneous vaccination distribution pop up, and I ended up getting out of work fairly late. Turned out Cameron also had a long day, so we were not as well packed as we normally are to just roll out after work.
Camping at Croft
After we "accidentally" bought the new trailer, time was of the essence. We scheduled a trip months in advance for the very next weekend! How were we to know we'd end up buying a trailer!?
That week, we got a quick rundown of how the trailer works, we brought it home on Wednesday, loaded up all our stuff on Thursday, and set off for our next camping adventure on Friday. It was an action-packed week, but we got it done.
Next stop: Croft State Park in good ol' South Carolina.
We Did a Thing...
So, we had a plan. Obviously, we like camping, so we've been talking about upgrading our little trailer for some time. The deal was to spend the year doing tons of research, looking at dozens of trailers, and making heavy payments on our trailer and MAYBE upgrade in the fall of 2021. Well... things change.
Hartwell Before Home
Sadly, it was time for the final campground stop of the trip (insert crying face). It was such a fabulous journey thus far, and we were excited for our final stop at Lake Hartwell Sate Park.
COLORS AT CALHOUN
After enjoying the coast, it was time for us to head back to more familiar terrain. Lakes and mountains
Christmas at the Coast
Hotdogs roasting on an open fire.
Jack frost nipping through your tent.
Yule tide carols being sung by the shore.
And folks dressed in shorts and flops.
This year, we decided to do Christmas on the coast in lovely Edisto Beach State Park, South Carolina!
Beginning At Barnwell
It's here!! Our biggest trip of the year! Christmas was a little hard to plan family visits due to COVID (still), so we decided to keep it simple and safe by roaming to some new state parks for two weeks! If you're one of our 3 readers, you probably remember that last year we went across the country and hit Texas. We had so much fun camping for the holiday season, it only made sense to do it again.
Checking Out Chester
Free weekend?! You all know what that means. It's time to book another camping trip! Thanksgiving festivities had wrapped up, and after a great week of food, drinks, and fun with Randy and Keith, it was time to hit the woods and have more food, drinks, and fun!
Hangin' at Hamilton
We were on our way (finally) to Hamilton Branch State Park! After almost two years since one of the campground hosts at Baker Creek state park suggested Hamilton Branch, we finally decided it was time to go! All I can say is we spent the whole time wondering....what the heck took us so long!?
The Mountain of Kings
It's really called Kings Mountain State Park, but I thought "Mountain of Kings" sounded more dramatic.
Just a Little Weekend Voyage
Woo! We had a weekend off. You know what that means!? Camping trip!
We didn't want to go too far during such a busy time, so we called John up and made our way to Sesquicentennial State Park in Columbia, SC.
Back to Our Tenting Roots
Heading to Maryland for a quick weekend? Why not make it a camping adventure!? But this time, lets save some gas and make it a tent weekend. I'm sure we remember how to do it...
Tales of Table Rock State Park
In many of our previous South Carolina camping adventures, we passed this massive rock formation and wondered what it was. Well, thanks to the power of Google and its all-knowingness, we discovered it was called Table Rock and that it was a state park complete with camping! Naturally, we had to check it out.
The Maine Event
We look forward to this time every year. It's time for our annual Maine vacation!
Happy 4th of July, everyone! For the holiday weekend, we headed to Jordan Lake State Recreation Area in Apex, North Carolina.
Its real name is Keowee-Toxaway State Park, but I couldn't pronounce that.
The Quarantined Couple
When social distancing measures go into effect, run to the woods!
The park so nice we visited twice.
Hanging Out with Seven
The beginning of 2020 was a busy time for the CameraCouple. We had several camping trips back to back to back, which is exactly how we like it. This weekend, we were heading to Andrew Jackson State Park in South Carolina. Get it... he was the seventh president.
For this week's installment of adventure, the Camera Couple heads to Dreher Island State Park in good ol' South Carolina.
Georgia Peaches, Georgia Beaches
Well.... We didn't have any peaches, but we did have beaches!
Don't Mess With Texas
We finally made it to Texas, just in time for Christmas. Hopefully Santa knows where to find us...
Basically, the entire point of this trip was to hit states that we've never been to. Oh, and also to have fun. Originally, we were trying to get out west to Colorado and Utah, but time didn't really permit us going that far. Instead, we settled for Arkansas as our only new state of the trip. We chose Hot Springs National Park as our destination because it sounded so cool!
Walking in Memphis
After an exciting trip to Nashville, we were off to Memphis.
He likes pizza.
