Except...we forgot to reserve a campsite until two days before we were hoping to be there!
Dan called and everything was packed. "Yes, there are always a few cancellations, but there is no way to be put on a waiting list." As we wondered what to do (and began mentioning different camping options), I prayed something would open up and that we'd be able to reserve it. As I made supper later that night, Dan checked the website. And sure enough -- a campsite was open!! And we jumped on it with excitement and thankfulness!
And we had such an incredible, incredible weekend.
We pulled in around 2 on Saturday -- and with the sun shining and perfect weather, we couldn't resist running to play in the ocean's waves.
Okay, so it started out as a walk on the beach, but soon someone threw the other person in. [grin]
Sunday night we took a moonlit walk on the beach (talk about romantic!) then went and laid on the sand and enjoyed looking up at all the stars and naming constellations.
"The heavens will praise YOUR wonders...
For who in the heavens can be compared to the LORD?
O LORD God of hosts, Who is might like YOU, O LORD?
YOUR faithfulness also surrounds YOU."
When its waves rise, YOU still them.
The heavens are YOURS, the earth also is YOURS;
The world and all its fullness, YOU have founded them."
A mare and her foal stopped by as we were grilling supper, and they thoroughly sniffed everything. We were enjoying having them visit until they tried to eat our supper. Dan came to the rescue and guarded the food -- while I continued taking pictures.
They walk, O LORD, in the light of YOUR countenance.
In YOUR name they rejoice all day long.
YOU are the glory of their strength.
Thank you Lord, for such a precious weekend!
