Beach Getaway

You'll have to forgive me that it's been a little quiet around here this week because...weeee! birthday weekend! Let's face it: I may be older but I'm just as excited as when I was little. This year I'm headed to Watch Hill (Fire Island) to go camping on the beach with my friend Lauren. I couldn't be more thrilled. Falling asleep to the sound of the ocean has to be one of my all-time favorite things. Lately we've been comparing notes on what magazines we're bringing so there's no overlap (Outside mag and Runners World) Oh and what camping supplies too. Priorities. Anyway, here are some awesome outdoorsy links so you can be excited with me:

  • I recently checked out the REI 1440 Project. I don't know what took me so long. It's so inspiring to see all of you out there exploring!
  • There's camping, and then there's canoe camping. Daniel Volland's beautiful photographs capture every second of the expedition.
  • Turns out you can cook eggs on a grill — here's how. And with a muffin tin too.

  • A friend asked me if I was bringing an aerobed with me... Um no, but I wouldn't mind a few of these luxury items.
