I have some good news - my new camera battery charger came on Friday. Unfortunately, we had already left for our camping trip, so iPhone photos will have to do for this post!
Evan and I went camping over the weekend...just on Friday night. I had a work event this past weekend, so we could only stay for one night. Luckily, the state park we went to was only 45 minutes away - nice and close!
Before heading to Portola Redwoods State Park, we stopped by Mollie Stone's to grab their Facebook Secret Sale item. If you're in the Bay Area, be sure to follow Mollie Stone's on Facebook - their secret sales are awesome!
This Pinot Noir Brut (a sparkling rose wine) is originally $18.99 - after using the FB Secret Sale code, we snagged it for $4.99. Crazy, right?!
We busted into the sparkling wine immediately upon setting up our tent. It was an odd feeling being in the middle of nature and slurping down some fancy bubbly!
We loved our campsite - had a great opening to see the sky! We spent the afternoon and evening reading, playing Yahtzee and enjoying little (turkey) smokies + s'mores. It was glorious!
We had plans for a 5.2-mile hike in the morning, so we fueled with bagels and coffee.
Evan is quite addicted to coffee, so we picked up some Starbucks Via packets. Not the best coffee I've ever had, but it did the job!
The hike was a perfect way to start the morning. It was so refreshing to start the day with a long walk outside - so good for the soul. It was also pretty darn amazing to hike through redwood forests. Wow.
Do you like to go camping?!
