No , definetely, there is no life without lipstick and without hotbaths adding bathing oils etc etc etc
BUT mama Nature is the most enchanting Serene and is able to drive you away from life's little vanities :)
I used to camp on a regular basis for years. But I am talking about real camping! Not getting your all clad frying pans along and your ice-cream machine...
Just a bathing suit, a pair of jeans and two white T-Shirts, a hat, fishing equipment,a tent, a chess, a bottle of scotch and someone good looking preferably tall in order to make a good shadow LOL :)
Cooking on the sand is relatively easy for an experienced cook.
Someone tought me once the "California Beach" Barbecue. This discussion brought it to my mind and it's a good opportunity to ask you about that.
California Barbecue is barbecuing in the sand.
You dig a hole and burn a serious amount of wood. When the coal is ready you place ON the coals large flat stones and you wait for them to heat up! Then on those stones you place whatever you want to barbecue and you cover it with foil and then with sand! You leave it there for some hours and you have a delicius dish!!
Is this a "California Beach Barbecue" ?
Anyway. Living in a beach you can also fish octopuses, hang them under the sun to dry and barbecue them as well.
Camping on the beach is fun if you are under 30 :)
PS 1.Thanks Monkeymay, that was sweet! No I wasn't absorbed by Eugenia I was on a trip :)
2. The photo above is where I used to camp :) The island of Elafonisos in Greece! According to Mythology, on this island lived Cyclops, the first adventure of Ulysses!
3. BTW. Who you think had a better time? Phatch or me? LOL ( Joking phatch)
