5 Tips for Backpacking with Kids | Say Yes to Hoboken. This applies to everybody: “1. Get out of the campgrounds. Trust me. Isn’t the point to get away from people when you camp? They’re very difficult to get a reservation if you’re in a popular area. Like, impossible. Drive just outside any national park and you’re probably in a national forest, wilderness area, multi-use area. You can do what they call ‘dispersed camping’ anywhere around there.”

Rue Montorgueil, at Oh Happy Day.
the Ugly Green Chair: Grand Central Station of the past A photo from before buildings were built that shaded it and prevented the sun from shining in the huge windows like this. Wow. Also, while I was in New York (way back) Grand Central Station was being cleaned and was largely closed off so I must remember to revisit it to see it in all it’s glory.

The other weekend I got to visit an alpaca farm with friends.
Alpacas have very soft necks. And they like apples.
There were chickens there too. Chicken butt!
We took a walk on the beach at low tide and found lots of things, including a sea cucumber, some tiny crabs, some truly horrifying looking seaweed, the shell above and one very startled heron.
These rocks looked decorated.
Miss you already sweet things!
