Sunday was adventure day. We packed the BioLite stove, tins of beans, bread, butter, a flask of hot chocolate and some inedible essentials, and walked up to the forest to meet friends. The weather couldn’t have been better sunshine; blue skies and frost on the ground.
This is one of the best spots in the whole forest. It’s also where we cooked up my birthday breakfast at the beginning of the year. Pouring a cup of hot chocolate was first on the list.
Then getting a fire going with help from the little people…
Beans and buttered bread with a sprinkling of pine needles. Toasted marshmallows for pudding!
Some wild time was just what I needed! Not just a park but dirt, quiet and a lack of orderliness.
