campfire. March, Saturday 17th

the air is still chilly, but we're back outdoors.
we went to a place not far from where we had the fall picnic. i used to come here a lot with the Scouts years ago, cause it's a good spot for campfires.

we had a little picnic, and cooked on the firewood. i've missed the smell of the crackling fire's smoke! i've missed breaking the dry wood with the knees, and making the tip to green sticks. 
in the Scouts we called this direct-heating method trapper cooking, which i think is in the name of north americans explorers, but i'm not sure.

sausages give their best, but potatoes, onions and eggs, too are delicious cooked this way!
special thanks to the firewood for keeping us warm while we ate and played cards.
