Rustic is what we do. Camping has been part of our lives since Richard and I were teenagers. Not together back then but from the time we were married we spent weekends and weeks away camping or roughing it. I have slept in the back of a car, in a cave, in a tent, in a camper, on the edge of the ocean, back to a tent, and now days, we have a pop up.
For me this is a way of life, for many others it is rustic….
Early in the morning – I got up to watch the sunrise, walked a fair way down the beach, settled in to start taking photo’s when the heavens opened and the rain came down.
The Green Iguana is a common site down in the Florida Keys and where we were staying they wandered through the campsite. This guy got really up close and personal. The Green Iguana is a vegetarian, and fairly harmless, although they do look a little intimidating when you see the really big ones.
This Land Crab’s nest sat at the very edge of our campsite. It was huge and it pincers were enourmous. I think I was more wary of the crab than the iguana.

For me there is nothing more special than sitting and watching a sunset and reminding myself that this is the glory of creation.
