When we went camping over the long weekend the nearby property has some great sand dunes on it. They’re just a short walk away from where we were setup and you can’t not go there.
JJ liked going off in his own direction.
The rest of us followed the path. I wish I’d gone with JJ as we ended up where he went anyway. Those sand dunes are a killer to walk on.
And the first hill we climbed was particularly steep.
Once we made it up the first steep hill and tried a couple of slides we decided to try another hill. JJ knew the way so off we went.
I loved the textures of the sand made by the wind.
Finally we found the good hill to slide down. It wasn’t as fast as it might have been which was apparently due to recent wet weather. Sand is a lot faster to slide down when it’s dry.
Looking back over to the property we were camping on.
On the way back I looked down this hill and the textures here looked even more fabulous than just the wind-made ones. You could see where the water had run down this hill.
I only had my prime lens on the camera so couldn’t zoom into what you can see in the sky in the photo below. It was an ultra-light aircraft with a special birthday banner for the birthday boy whose property we were staying on.
Linking up with Trish for – again – almost Wordless Wednesday.

Trish, by the time we got to the last sandhill I didn’t slide down because I couldn’t be bothered climbing back up. I just designated myself the photographer.
What a place to go camping! We have similar dunes near where we live, I used to love going for walks over them to the beach, I don’t do it now I have kids in tow.
Yes, we’re really lucky to have friends there. The kids will be old enough one day to join you and you’ll be back at it.
