|Who needs power?!|
We quickly found torches, lit some of our many candles and Nick primed our fuel lantern. He then set up our fuel stove inside and I adjusted my menu slightly to make a couple of vegie side dishes in our usual saucepans. I had already measured all the ingredients for (my first-ever) corn bread, so decided to cook it in our small camp oven, over a low flame. Nick BBQ-ed by candlelight and our impromptu camp cooking session was a success. The corn bread actually worked, though was a little charred on the bottom (no doubt due to my impatience)!
Typically, power was restored - just as we finished eating! Vaughan was not greatly impressed and voiced his disappointment "I was enjoying that blackout"! I think we all were.
