In the summer of 2010 we took the long drive (10 miles) to McGrath State Beach campground, along with our neighbors the Podells.  We stayed at campsite #36.  As always, we had a fantastic time.

It was overcast and a little cool in the mornings, but it warmed up later.

When we go camping, we always seem to spend a lot of time eating! 

Aaron was skeptical that Cheryl's eggs would be any good.  He also doubted she could make coffee cake in a dutch oven.

But it all turned out excellent!!!

When Aaron barbecued his tasty ribs, he didn't care if he got smoke in his eyes

Or Harry's !!!

Large portions of McGrath State Beach are fenced off so endangered species of birds won't be disturbed.

This is not an endangered bird.  Just a common sea gull.
