Hurricane Creek

saturday//April 25
Emma && I went camping with a group of UA students, both international and domestic, out at Hurricane Creek in Holt, Alabama. Along the way we got terribly lost ((nothing new with me behind the wheel)) and stubbled upon a fabulous estate sale where I found the below items. Each room was filled with goodies but — cash & check was the only form of payments so I was limited to my 10 dollar bill, thank goodness. Needless to say I spent every penny and I feel like I got a pretty good deal on these vintage pieces, especially that pretty necklace.

Estate scores//vintage swim trunks for my sweetie, old Alabama tag from 87, vintage pillow case-can’t get enough of these! and a girly necklace from the 60s or 70s (detail below)

When we finally made it to the camp site we popped open a beer and went wading around the water, cautious for the suspected copper head neighbor.  We had such a good time searching the creek beds for arrow heads and shiny pebbles, playing with labradors pups, and sharing the secret of smors with the new international friends.

both sporting vintage tees and shades.
Emma scored her vintage Nuggets shirt off Ebay and thrifted the striped shirt and gave it to me.  Totally my new fav, and the shades too, they are the kind that change to a different color in the sun!

bye bye sun, hello fire!

laid by the sweltering fire after grilling out burgers, veges, & hotdogs until we retired back to the tent to sleep on the acorn covered ground.
Love the outdoors especially with friends!

    oh my god, it’s like you heard how much my soul wants to go camping! Haha, I love the outdoors and their simple pleasures.

    thanks for the comment, and that would be a peek of one of my tats- it’s an outline of a galloping horse, but in certain tanks tops, like that one from the post, it is, quite literally, as my grandma did tell me, “my dear, there is a horse’s ass on your shoulder.” Yep.
