Hamlin Beach State Park - New York

Friday, September 9, 2011
I couldn’t believe the day had finally come.   My husband and I had been talking about it for years.  As soon as we see the Hamlin Beach State Park sign, a sudden tingling feeling bubbles through my body knowing a few days of relaxing from work is about to start. Camping is a relaxing hobby that I have learned to enjoy. Many people have gone camping at least once in their lives. Some like it, and others do not but it is definitely one of our favorite things to do especially on a long weekend like this. I am glad that we decide to do this. I enjoy any chance that I get to go in a tent. I finally found something I love to do. I would not trade it for anything, and I look forward to many days of experiencing nature with my husband in this way. Once our camp set up and our appetite is in full force. After starting our first campfire, to make dinner.  I could feel the heat touching my face and the campfire smoke almost perfumed my clothes. We would cook hot dogs hamburgers, fish, corn on a cob; we roast marshmallows and everyone's favorite smores! 

Our first night at the campsite is so humid but very refreshing.  The next day I was surprise when I woke up I found out that it was raining. Since all the plans we had today involved the outdoors, such as going to the beach and hiking on the trail. We had nothing to do than stay inside the camper, cuddle each other and go back to sleep. I check my phone weather apps that day were supposed to rain like this for the next four to five days. I’m not happy about that, but I don’t want to ruin this great vacation so life must go on. I’m glad after couple more hours the rain stops. And we start putting our backpack and start our adventure for that day. First we go hiking like miles and miles out in the woods it takes us at least 2 hours. Then we change clothes and jump on the beach right next to the hiking site. It’s cloudy that day so the water from the lake is cold but the temperature is about 90F degrees (weird isn’t it?) Anyway we had fun though and surely next year we will come back again.
