Camping--Vintage Style

[Me and my Beau on the beach. I am wearing a vintage romper/swimsuit]

Two weekends ago, my beau and I went camping on a cute little island off the coast of Charelvoix, Mi. The camping sites were basically just numbered plots, with no electricity or running water, so we were really roughing it! Definitely vintage camping, although I would have loved it to be more like The Long, Long Trailer!

I did get the chance to take one of my vintage rompers/swimsuits for a spin on the beach. For being all heavy cotton it was surprisingly cool and dried rather quickly after a quick swim in the lake.

Overall, we had a great time camping and I survived a very rustic weekend without the modern amenities of the 21st Century!
