C – Camping Coffee – the best time of the day

The A to Z Challenge is now at “C” and as a camper that can mean nothing other than Coffee.

As you wake up to the crisp morning air, the sun rising and the smell of coffee perking you will remember just why you camp.The sound of the coffee bubbling away and the smell as the aroma increases only helps to wake you up on even the coolest of camping mornings.  Even though we often camp with the conviences of electricity we still percolate our coffee. 


Being an early riser I have always loved getting up and enjoying that first cup of coffee before the rest of the campground has even rolled over. Listening to the birds chirping and watching the squirrels move about is all part of this morning ritual. It is a time to enjoy the sunrise by walking the dogs down to the beach or log that overlooks an ocean view.  Maybe it’s just pulling out my book and taking in a few chapters before the others start to get up. As the morning dew lifts and the sun starts to warm up the campground it’s a chance to reflect on the memories of the campfire that was.

And then it happens: the distant cry of a child or bark of a dog. The frame of an RV creeking as there is movement inside and doors begin to open as my sleepy campers begin emerge looking for breakfast. It’s now time for a second cup as the new aroma of bacon replaces the coffee.

Somehow the second cup is never the same as the first!

  1. Sitting in a comfy chair with a Hot Mug of Coffee, allowing your mind to slowly adjust to being awake, and being a silent observer as the rest of the world wakes up!
    I always tell people there are a thousand reasons why I Camp. This is somewhere around number 37? LOL!


  2. This place looks awesome for morning view with hot coffee. You must be lucky to wake up to this sight every morning. I remember back home my mom and I used to spend quality time in the morning over coffee. And it’s the best part of my day.

    All the best on the A-Z to challenge!

  3. I agree that mornings are the best time of day before everyone else starts making those noises of the day. I have to start with bucket loads of tea before I can climb up to coffee.
    As for the noise, maybe I’d be better finding a camp site which few people visit. I think I’d just want to keep the mug near and carry on reading that book.
