Last weekend I went camping at Big Sur with some friends and family at the Big Sur Riverside Campground and Cabins. It’s a private campground that’s located right next to the Big Sur River and has a combination of cabins, rooms or campground sites that you can book.
Since I didn’t technically sleep on the ground, I wouldn’t consider what I did last weekend camping. But I semi-roughed it because I skipped a couple showers that weekend, dry shampoo was my best friend. I didn’t want to shower in the communal campground shower and squeak back to the campsite in wet flip flops.
The weather was beautiful, it was consistently in the mid-70’s Fahrenheit. It did get cold at night, but a cozy sweater and a campfire was more than enough to keep us happy.
The campsite had a cute pedestrian bridge to help us crossover the river and out of the campgrounds.
I wore the overalls I made over last week. It worked as a perfect coverup to the beach.
I always had a sweater or jacket with me last weekend, but most of the time it was tied around my waist because the weather was so nice. Side note: I’m really glad the tying around the waist trend came back. I still did it after it died in 90’s, but I knew it was the “uncool” thing to do. It makes me happy that other people caught on again. It’s way easier that carrying your sweater in your arms or trying to make it fit in your bag.
We took hikes on the multitude of trails in Big Sur. One of the most popular trails is to McWay Waterfall. It’s not much of a hike, more like a stroll that most people can easily do.
The water looked so inviting, I wanted to dive right in. Sadly that beach was not accessible, we all only got to look at it from afar.
My dad saw me take a selfie, so he wanted to take one too.
If you’ve never been in Big Sur before, I highly recommend a trip to it. After moving back from San Diego a year ago, I didn’t realize how much I missed living by water and the smell of the sea until I spent the weekend here.
