Sleeping under the stars :D

I remember a distant memory when my friends and I slept under the stars, lying on a comforter laid on the sand, with the sound of the water to lull us to sleep. It all started as a disaster. We brought along tents to put our bags in, and to sleep in when night settled. It was a team building and retreat, so we had a lot of activities lined up. Everything was perfect! The day started out with sunny skies, but later on, clouds began to gather.. then came the rain. The tents, unfortunately, were left open for the rain to ravish. The floors of our tents were really drenched and couldn't be slept in. By some miracle, our bags were only wet at the top part, leaving our things dry. So when night came, we camped outside our tents and opted to sleep under the stars. My friends and I snuggled up to each other (good thing I brought along 2 comforters!)and told each other stories until we all fell asleep. Fortunately, it didn't rain that night until the next morning, and we woke up to watch a beautiful and breathtaking sunrise :) Has anyone got a story to share about sleeping under the stars? Please do post it here :) I'd love to hear from you! :)

Sleeping under the stars is always great, but it doesn't put me to sleep right away because it leaves me pondering and and appreciating the beauty of the night sky! That's why I had my house designed with a sun roof in one room and a wide porch for the purpose of star gazing... too bad, it's the bloody rainy season!

Boo for the rainy season! Yep, it doesn't put me to sleep in a jiffy too! I love star gazing and I remember teaching my friends about constellations and stuff :)

I used to enjoy "sleeping out" with my friends when I was a kid. We would just stretch out our sleeping bags in the backyard and go to sleep under the stars. It was a good time. We would see shooting stars and stuff. I remember those times fondly. It is a good memory to think of them now.
