Camping on the Peninsula

We took my little cousin camping for the first time! The weather was perfect -- not too rainy and comfortable temperatures at night. Wanting to ease her into the camping scene, we chose a campsite with running water and toilets :P

Here are some pictures from around the campsite (yes, it was this beautiful!)

There was a path by our campsite that led down the coast to a beautiful beach view.

A few panoramas were required to try to capture the beach's beauty. Oh, and by the way, that's Canada across the way. We were actually camping on public land that was a fort during WWII (Fort Hayden).

I would love to straighten out the water in the picture, though.

This island stood out in the middle of the strait. I tried to frame it with the grass and trees. I like the look I captured with the sun's glow coming from the right.

And of course I captured pictures of the sunset. Look how clear the skies are! Using the panorama setting on my camera, the right side got a little bit choppy, ruining the lines. But I think it still captures the beauty.

My cousin loved camping so much, she wanted to stay an extra day past the 3 we had planned! I would call that a success.
