Back to the Woods

It is nice how friends and family who nudge one to try things otherwise avoided. As a result, we have gone camping as a family 3 times, largely due to people who have convincing answers to the nicely stated objections. For example:
"We don't have a tent." That's okay, Reuben has an extra one.
"We don't know what is a good camp site."
I know some great ones. And I have
booked you with the rest of us already.

"We are not big into hiking, etc.”
But you love a good cup of tea. We will make some probably every 2 hours or whenever anyone gets a bit bored.
Add to this that the forecasters were wrong and we had good solid weather, even if the nights may have been more chilly than hoped for. All in all, a superb way to end another summer.

I love the last shot of them all conked out midreading. Hey I accidentally hit some tab about needing more details to prove your the author of this blogsight. Can you resend that query from facebook? Disregard if this makes no sense to you...
