Blamping On

California Dreaming allows dogs on their porch dining area which overlooks the Ashley River. Emma really enjoys being by our sides, especially when there is food involved.  After dinner at California Dreaming, we headed back to our sailboat.  Music, candlelight, champagne, and a colorful shoreline to complete this evening.   

We prepared to play cards but were carried away in the beautiful breezy night, laughing and talking about our dreams.  My flowers are failing, our candles are burning out, but no worries because we have more candles, plenty of matches, and a lifetime of laughs to be had.

We had a time trying to coax Emma down to bed.

Time for a movie. Casanova on the ipad.  Mark didn't make it through my hitting the play button before he fell asleep.

Good morning.  This is the best time of day to be out on the water, it's so magical waking up to the birds singing.  Pour some coffee and sure enough the dolphins will come to greet you.   

Bacon, eggs, and coffee.  

It still amazes me how close the dolphins come to the boat.  I could sit and watch them for hours...

... and hours...

G'Morning Sunshine!

I hope you liked our blamping trip.  Do you have a blamping story to tell?  I'd love to hear about your glamping style.


Boat Glamping

A frozen Himalayan salt block makes for great cold appetizers and incorporates a light salty flavor.  Place the salt block in the freezer for about 3 hours prior to serving.  Here is fresh watermelon, feta cheese crumbles, and mint leaves.  

Emma enjoys blamping very much.

We headed off on the dinghy for dinner at the restaurant California Dreaming

California Dreaming in Charleston is located over the bridge in West Ashley, on the water .  One may describe their food as upscale bar food.  Salads are huge and they always come with a "sticky" croissant roll.  Warning, they are delicious but full of sugar.  A salad there is a hearty meal, California Dreaming doesn't mess around with portion sizes.  All in all, their food is delicious and the view is incredible.  I wasn't feeling like a salad, so I went for some devilish chicken fingers.   They are surprisingly the best I have ever had.

"Hey Mark, look at that cute dog over there..."

Whoops, thanks for the french fry!
