make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful."
-Joshua J. Marine
C and I went to Sleeping Bear National Dunes, Platte River Campground. It was a beautiful weekend with warm sunny weather. We slept in the tent in the woods and played chess in the tent. In the morning, I woke up early and laid there and watched C sleeping until he woke up.
We climbed the huge dune that is eight times bigger than my house. I had trouble climbing it but C kept telling me I could do it, and I did it. We sat on the top of the sand dune and played chess. I liked camping with my friend because he is adventurous. I didn't like the mosquitoes because they bug me. I liked floating down the river with C. We floated on our backs.
I learned to set up a campfire in a tepee position and I went around the campsite searching for kindling. C cooked our food on the fire and we ate macaroni and cheese out of the same pan. We had our own fork though. C also cooked sausages for breakfast but some of them fell into the fire.
We put up Tibetan Prayer Flags at our campsite to mark our territory. C said that they also have an interesting cultural meaning. I also learned patience because camping teaches you how to learn things step by step. I like nature and it's exciting to learn.
