Camping, Rafting – If It’s An “Ing” I’m There

I feel as though my bones have turned to jelly (or should that be jello?) and my mind has become mush. It’s a lovely sensation! I have successfully resisted the urge to check my work emails and I’m struggling to remember what day of the week it is. I have, however, found a fragile Internet connection. Come on! Cold turkey can be dangerous for a person’s health, you know.

There has been this…

There’s always one damn fool.

And this…

Knitting in a Yurt

Camping at Yosemite

Action Woman

My Sorbetto tops (which pack up to the size of a fairy’s handkerchief) have been life savers during all the outward bound, sunshine-y activities. So have the pair of shorts that I bought for under a tenner from M&S. (I badly wish I’d indulged my instinct to buy a second pair in a different colour.) I strongly recommend these shorts!

If you could care less about the trip, and just want to hear about my sewing adventures, Beth has written a comprehensive post on our fun together. I’ll be reporting back myself as soon as I can get my head into gear.

For now, I have a waterfall to inspect. Then I must help Ian in his search for a decent Stateside Old Fashioned cocktail. Not much luck so far. Our hopes are high for Las Vegas.

    Sounds like so much fun! Which yurts did you go to? Tree Bones? I can’t remember if you were going in that direction (Big Sur). Hope you’re having fun in Vegas and surviving the heat!

  11. That looks like camping I could do (maybe for a day or two) Glad you are having such a wonderful time. LOT of opportunities for any cocktail you would like in LV. Good luck there.

    What an adventure you’re having! Pardon me as I live vicariously through you. Love the yurt! My husband and I stayed in a yurt for part of our honeymoon and it was fabulous. I’m determined to “yurt” again someday….

    Glad to see you having a lovely holiday! Enjoy the rest of it – how I long to be in California!

    I hope the cabin tents (aka yurts) don’t smell as funky as they used to! Spent much time in Yosemite when I was a kid. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen those old rocks. Enjoy Las Vegas, city of glorious buffets…
