A Night at Cowell Ranch Beach

This weekend I ended up camping with Imad, Omar Fahmy, and Omar Shaker. It has been a while since I’ve gone camping, and I’ve been seriously craving it for some time. In fact, last week I have been reading the book “Ultralight Backpackin’ Tips” in anticipation of extended backpacking trips that I’d like to arrange at some point in the near future.

We ended leaving late Friday night to Cowell Ranch Beach. The beach is closed at night, but we sneaked in. There was no one else at the beach, so we set up camp fire and spent the night.

It was a magical night. The darkness, the stars, the ocean waves, the company, it was all just… magical.

One of my favorite moments is when we used the drums Imad brought and played it along some medium tempo music.

Another favorite moment is observing Omar Fahmy sleeping. It’s quite entertaining.

نمت في العراء خارج الخيمة و كان نوما في غاية الراحة و السكينة. استيقظت في الصباح الباكر و السكينة تملأني. استيقظت على صوت البحر العذب و تغريد العصافير و الندى الذي كان يكسي الرمل و الزرع.

هذه الليلة كانت تذكرة بسيطة لي أن السعادة لا تتطلب الكثير.
