We embark on our final big trip today and I'm trying something new – a no cook camping trip (except coffee and marshmallows of course). I was thinking of making a bunch of stuff ahead like salads and snacks. So far I’ve only gotten a few things made like the roast peppers and the raspberry oat bars. The bars don’t look like much but yum they taste fab – kinda breakfasty – i suspect they’ll get gobbled up with coffee in the morning.
If i actually get to it my make ahead menu would look something like:
Dinners : (1) chef salad with rustic bread; (2) tortellini, pesto, cherry tomatoes, and mozzarella salad
Lunch: (1) croissants with roast vegetables (2) anything left in the cooler or peanut butter and jam
Breakfast: (2) cereal with berries
Snacks: apples, raspberry oat bars, chips, carrots

Bay Interpretive Center the boys are either napping or playing soccer.
I am thoroughly enjoying a quiet moment with new field guide, The
Beachcomber's Guide to Seashore Life in the Pacific Northwest.

We leave for our next trip this week. This time we off to Bay View State Park and I'm a little nervous about this one. Friends are coming and I picked the site, but i really don’t know much about it. I only chose it because it was close and our first choice, Deception Pass, was fully booked.
One friend mentioned that it’s not supposed to be that great – my rep is on the line! Bay View is on Padilla Bay, which looks like a naturalists dream, but how will it be with preschoolers?
I suppose i should be worrying more about the forecast thundershowers…

I’ve been playing around a bit with the macro setting on my camera. I took these shots at Spencer Spit. my favourite is the red crab although it seems a bit overexposed – can you believe that shell was only about the size of a quarter?
Which one do you like the best?
