This weekend I went for camping! I love to camp as it reminds me my school day…where we all friends used to camp away from home! It was a concept for me like anyone does today’s ‘sleep-over’ at a friends place :D!!!
“Camping is nature’s way of promoting the motel business.”
But the fun here is you are with all the friends with whom you are in school and always want to be with them for more than school time. Those ghost stories at night and then the cold breeze making us realize its time to sleep he he he it was fun!
“The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.” ~ Bill Cosby
I was told by many of my colleagues that it’s gonna be hot!! and I was kind of disappointed with the thought as my thinking was when we are in the woods its gonna be cold with some fresh air…! BTW I did organize for our project lunch @ Piatti :D…it was amazing 😉
“The thing about performance, even if it’s only an illusion, is that it is a celebration of the fact that we do contain within ourselves infinite possibilities.” ~ Sydney Smith
We reached the camping place its quite a long drive from a place called Gilroy! On the way we saw some deer crossing the roads…I felt more close to the nature now :D.
The camping was at Mount Madonna Park. Guys you wont believe …I had dressed up in shorts and a tank-top but by the time we reached thereI had to hunt for my sweater :D…it was chilly as winter!!!
“In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.” ~ William Blake
I loved it and enjoyed a lot with all other friends. We all gals went for a trail walk and in the evening there was a music concert! We all went for the concert. It was quite amazing to see the group of three people all the way coming from San Jose and Walnut Creek – in California – to present there creations as a voluntary work.There were amazing country songs…they were old with grand children and they did entertained the audience very well.
Night was with BBQ and camp fire…! I miss my Scouts & Guides days…it was so much fun!It was so foggy that as it started getting deep dark the fog started melting as dew drops and started pouring..only the places where the trees were…
“It is not the clear-sighted who rule the world. Great achievements are accomplished in a blessed, warm fog.”~ Joseph Conrad
Well we were near the camp fire so these dew drops didnt affect or made us to change our mind. We sticked near the fire…started singing songs and started having a gala of time. Now even at these camps…America or even in Canada there are rules :D….one should be off to bed by 10:00 p.m. and guys we were at 11:00 saying- night is still young 😉 We had our plans…as soon we see the Ranger guys truck coming we used to be in all our low voice and as soon they leave we were back live 😀 It was quite late when I got in to my tent…and the night was real cold with the dew drops falling as if its raining!
“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore
Morning when I opened my eyes…it just made me feel – what a life…its like a dream to be in the arms of nature and the birds with there chirping sounds telling you its time to wake up! I loved every bit of it and we all got fresh…started preparing b’fast…and by 1 we had to take out the tent!
“The really happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery when on a detour.”
After the camping coming home back was kind of mixed feeling…thinking the fun is over and now get back to work :D…but at the same time when you reach home you feel…there is nothing better than home-sweet home!
I enjoyed a lot but seems the wave of cold and hot weather made me kind a sick …with sneezing and stuffy nose:( But hey…am doing fine thats what its all about…;)
