The sun was warm and the creek was inviting, so we spent a lot of time exploring the water right next to the campsites and keeping cool down there. The guys even took all the kids down for an afternoon, letting us ladies relax and enjoy a quiet couple hours back at camp. What a great afternoon just chatting and relaxing under the redwoods, while the menfolk enjoyed a beer and the kids had a blast in the water (we brought extra clothes this time for all the creek wading that went on that afternoon). On the last night, the kids put on what is becoming the traditional camp play, which this year again was appropriately dramatic, somewhat improvisational and perhaps a little chaotic, too. Love the budding thespians in all of them!
I am already looking forward to another camping trip next August. We might even try a new camping spot, but if not, Big Basin is tried and true. What a whole lot of fun for all!
