We snuck away for a beautiful camp on Lake Superior.


Gathering water for washing dishes.



Building fires.


Discovering smoke bombs.

Seeing how many we can light at once.


Building a Viking Long Boat, complete with outrigger.

Summarily arming it with smoke bombs (because why wouldn't you!).


Mama even got to do some fireside knitting.


Successfully kicking off Summer of Socks. These really are the days...

Oh, and there has been spinning. Yes, there has been spinning... :-)

Oh, that really brought me back to days(weeks even!) spent camping along the shores of Lake Michigan. Very similar in looks. Nothing like that here in Kansas. All the lakes here are man-made resevoirs. Not quite the same...

Looks like a great break. Good work on the socks- I recently frogged a pair,, couldn't stay focussed. Shame the spinning wheel isn't more portable :)
