Island on the road....Day 4
Yes, the tell tale red egg that signifies a visit from the Easter hare was spotted quickly as two boys emerged from the camper -
The red egg!
Hmmm...I think all that's missing is the Wolf suit
We had a nice breakfast of hard-boiled eggs, citrus fruit, bacon, and toasted crossiants. This camping toaster is actually one of our favorite pieces of camping equipment. It was a gift from my sister-in-law and family and I have to admit that we were skeptical at first but it works great! One of the great things about camping is that you can bring special little items that can make a meal feel homey - like my sicilian orange spread. Yum!
I was a little worried about Easter clothes being presentable for Mass. I had ironed everything, placed the clothes on hangers and then carefully spread them out on the beds of the pop-up under the bedding. Once we arrived I could hang them up and I think we all managed to look pretty well for campers.
Mass was beautiful at the Cathedral Basilica of St.Augustine. After Mass the children all enjoyed their first ice-cream cone after our traditional lenten sugar fast. And later that afternoon....we were on the beach! The only thing that didn't get planned out so well was Easter dinner - hot dogs over the campfire. Oh well, there were no complaints.
