As we drove out to the site the rain on the windscreen was suggesting that perhaps today was not the ideal day for spending round a campfire. However a bit of rain wasn't about to put us off, knowing that the woods should give us some good cover if needed.
As it turned out it the rain didn't stay long and we had a great day, den building, playing on the rope swing and whittling a variety of spreading knives, toasting forks and spoons.
Of course all that hard work made for hungry children, so some campfire
cooking was definitely needed. The bread twists made great hot dog buns
with toasted marshmallows for pudding. Yum.
