The trees in our campsite were all very tall, and the lowest hanging branches were generally over 9-feet above the ground. This meant that there were trees climbed.
And Brad and Eric threw rocks at each other (with rope tied around them) in order to string the tarp high enough. Eric was smart and used a shield.
Saturday morning started out pretty gloomy. It poured down rain not long after we got up. And it stayed cloudy long enough for Brad to try death-by-coconut.
However, by the late morning, the skies had begun to clear. We spent the day in the town of Long Beach eating ice cream, taking in the local music scene, drinking margaritas, taking advantage of the free carriage rides, and having an epic dance party on the beach.

The weather was gorgeous the entire rest of the day on Saturday.
Sunday morning, it clouded up again. We got up early that morning, packed up camp, and drove south to Astoria, OR to check out the Rogue Brewery Tasting Room. Before heading to the bar/restaurant, we stopped at the Astoria Column and climbed way too many stairs to get to the top. I told myself it was good exercise before having beer for lunch.
All-in-all, it was a great weekend with great friends. Those friends are the thing I miss most about living in Seattle.
