Camp Blake Island

Without a doubt, this has been the mildest Pacific Northwest Winter I have experienced in my time here over the last 15 years. In truth, the entire West Coast has had it pretty good this winter. March is here already (!) and with it, the first day of Spring near the end of the month. Indeed, the flowers and trees began showing blooms and new growth in mid-February.

Already, I have a serious case of Spring Fever and have taken to cleaning out closets and drawers at home. I find myself often thinking of getting out in the yard to get it tidied up and ready for sunny days and lunch on the back patio. I also find myself thinking ahead to Spring Break and wanting to get out into nature. Maybe a camping trip is in order.

If you are stuck in a colder climate, with (perhaps many) inches of snow on the ground, do you find yourself dreaming of Spring as well? What plans have you made for the days when the sun is out, the temps are up and BBQ season is on the horizon?

Here’s some get-out-into-nature camp inspiration for us while we anxiously await the official end of winter.
