Remember this?

This is the little vintage trailer we purchased two summers ago. It was completely restored inside by the man we bought it from. Time sure does fly, because this trip we took around the Olympic peninsula was the first time we have really had a chance to use it! It was great! The girls loved it, and it made it so easy to go from place to place in, not having to take down tents, just hook up and go!
Our trip began with a ferry boat ride which the girls loved, then we arrived at this campground. After a hike, we arrived at this beach. M loved it because it was full of small rocks you could flip over and find lots of crabs underneath. L wasn't too excited about the crabs, and didn't like this beach.

At Ruby beach, L had a blast. It was such a large beach that she had so much room to run. She played in the water, and in the sand. She couldn't just find a little stick to play with, no!, she had to drag this big piece of driftwood around with her. Later she found a place to put it in the water and she sat on it like a boat. She went swimming, clothes and all!

Good-bye Ruby beach! M found an orange sea star while we were there, as well some other sea urchins, and sea creatures. We also found a small "ruby" colored rock to bring home as our souvenier from there!
From here we stayed at one more campground with a lakeside campsite. We had a small river otter that visited our site, along with a group of canadian geese. The girls had their share of new experiences on this trip! It was so much fun.
Almost home...

Hiking, exploring, biking, swimming, and more...they were wiped out!
Hope you have time to enjoy a little trip away this summer too!

I am so so so glad you had a wonderful time! I can't believe how much those beaches are like Cornwall!
