A quick - but full - stop.

A brief pause to look up... Look in...
Appreciate the camping experiences of childhood. (I still love damper on a stick!)

Marvel at nature and the tiniest details of life.


See it through a child's eyes. (The adventure of collecting sap.... who'd a thunk it?).

Enjoy some bush craft (involving the words "warp" and "weft"... I couldn't help myself. Indoctrination at every available opportunity here).


Relish the opportunity to go walking through wet bushland in duck pj's and gumboots.


...or indeed cammo pj's and Italian leather (heeled) boots. (Guess who forgot to pack the Blundstones??)

One night away and a big dose of nature. Lovely.

Love how concerned your commenters are for your boots! Looks like a truly delightful getaway. Must compare damper recipes - I'm still looking for one that tastes as good as it did when I was a kid...

I must say, you're brave camping out in this weather! I never heard of the damper on a stick, that's a novel way of having it, must try some time.

Sensational :-) You're making me want to get back out there too! I adore the bush weaving - must give that a go with my kids.

I don't know which I love more - molten mallow on a stick or the impromptu woven works! - What a fun day that must have been

I love you wood weaving! I did similar for my litle guy's sand castle a couple summers ago when I wove some reeds for the drawbridge ... the realtives thought I was nuts, but my son loved it!
