Where I stayed
We ate some lunch and Scott lounged until he actually feel asleep while I blogged away in the tent. We were hoping that the sun would return but it never did and we burned most of the afternoon just lying around and catching up on blogs
We had planned to spend the day on the beach but thanks to the cloud cover that never really happened. We were a little disappointed but at least we had the morning which was gorgeous. We were also struggling with supper as our normal portion sizes were no longer filling us up and would have to increase how much we were cooking to fill us up.
Already dark and not having any plans for the evening we decided it might be fun to gather up a bunch of wood on the beach and have a fire. I had been dying for a campfire this trip but no campsites have pits leaving us out to dry. Luckily there was tons of wood on the beach and a fire pit which we had spotted earlier. The only problem was we didn’t have any paper and most of the wood on the beach was bamboo
It had just hit 19:00 and we were in heaven and I was on cloud nine finally having my campfire. It was time to find out what happens to bamboo and we tossed some on. We learned that it burns incredibly fast and hot and became a bit of a game as we just tossed it on now and then to create a raging inferno. Sitting there enjoying life time flew by until it was 23:00 and we had exhausted our supply of wood. Still having a bunch of bamboo left we tossed it all in one big heap and created ourselves a bonfire as a finale. We spent most of the time by the fire just chatting away about anything and everything until the final hour which was spent talking about all of mom’s home cooked food we missed. By the time we got back to the tent we were starving having covered pretty much everything our mom’s cook and how badly we wanted some. I hope those ovens are ready for when we get home cause there is a couple years worth of catching up to do. We fell asleep by midnight and hoped that tomorrow would bring us sunshine and again hoping for no rain as our clothes remained on the lines almost dry but with the cloudy day it was taking longer than we expected.
