OK, OK...
I'm torn between two different campgrounds ... but they weren't with our Sprinter ...
When we're out of the country, we rent VW Kombis as a our sleeping quarters ....
So here is one of the VWs at one of the campgrounds:



Here's the view out of the side windows visible above, showing the rest of the campground's occupants:



Here's the view out of the other side window:



In the morning it was a bit calmer:



Then, a few days later we stayed at another campground... we drove on to the grass putting our nose next to one of the fire pits:



This was the view through the windshield:



And this was the view out the side window:



The campground had a parking pad with hose to wash the salt spray off in the morning.

First site: Baffles Bai,
Second site: Tsitsikamma section of the Stormsriver Mouth branch of the Garden Route National Park... South Africa

About 100ft from our camp in the highlands of Honduras. This canal leads to an amazing lake.

Sunshine Coast, BC


Feathers, Central WA


Squamish, BC


Pemberton, BC


Yoho NP, BC


Vancouver Island, BC






and of course....on those days where we're willing to do a little extra work on top of where the van takes us...

Scott Provencial Park, BC


Joffre Lakes, BC
