Do you wanna know a secret? I have been living in America for 4 1/2 years now but I have never really gone camping. I am not a wilderness girl but I’m in for travel and adventures. I went camping with Mikey and the family (not blood-related but I feel like they’re my own) two weeks ago. Work has been really hectic and I needed a time off.
We went to Lake Perris in Perris, CA and camped there for 3 days and 2 nights. This California state park offers camping, swimming, biking, hiking, fishing, boating, and horseback-riding, among others. The park fee was cheap, too, and you’re guaranteed to make the most out of your money’s worth. The camping trip made me feel like I was gone for a week! I recommend that anyone feeling the city woes to grab some spinning reels and go fishing here! It felt so great! Here are a few pictures I took while camping.
(I haven’t explored Photoshop yet, so I owe it to Instagram for post-processing.)
I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.
~ Henry David Thoreau
I love fishing. You put that line in the water and you don’t know what’s on the other end. Your imagination is under there.
~ Robert Altman
