I’m not counting CigarFest ’07 as an official camping trip since it wasn’t the whole family. Weâ€™re back from our first camping trip of the season! We went to Beachcomberâ€™s Resort in Cape May, NJ this weekend and had a wonderful time.
This was Daisyâ€™s first camping trip and she was great – just like an old pro! She slept in her crate inside the camper at night and adjusted very well to her new surroundings. She did not, however, like being tied up on the lead very much and tried her best to chew through it when no one was watching. Sorry, Daisy – thatâ€™s not happening! Thereâ€™s a steel cable insideâ€¦
We went to Cape May Point (one of the few spots where dogs are allowed on the beach) and let the kids hunt for Cape May diamonds while Daisy dug in the sand to her heartâ€™s content.
I was surprised that Daisy didnâ€™t immediately jump in the water – she seems to like water so much (she even tries to jump inside the bathtub with Emily!). But she was VERY cautious and ran from the waves whenever they rolled in. Mike was determined to get her in the water, but she never went in past her little ankles.
Thatâ€™s the famous sunken concrete ship in the background (for those not from this area).
What a gorgeous day! And Daisy was quite the little center of attention everywhere we went. Everyone stopped to pet her and wanted to know what kind of dog she was. I went into one store for a few minutes and came out to find Mike surrounded by a dozen admirers – of Daisy, not Mike, unfortunately for him.
But I did tell my husband that if, God forbid, he ever found himself single again, he could sure use Daisy to meet women!
I also managed to fit in some stops to a few antique shops while we were in Cape May. I found it so hard to justify paying â€˜antique pricesâ€™ for items that I knew I could probably find at a yard sale for less than $5.
But I did make one purchase – a unique vintage sewing cabinet.
I thought this would be so cool to organize my punches, embellishments and rolls of thread. It has little clear jars and lots of little pockets too. Best of all, it folds flat for storage:
Only $25 – not bad for something not only pretty, but useful too.
Hope you have a happy day!
