Much rain and local flooding in early July saw us taking advantage of a rare sunny day to head into our local forest.
We took provisions for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - so were well prepared for a day of fun.
The creek was full, which hampered Vaughan's critter catching but our new toasting fork was thoroughly tested and Bandit shared some special Sausage King fare.
I made my best-ever damper - so need to brag about that.
Well, on searching the archives, it seems there was another rather fine example in 2011. However, there have been slightly charred offerings in between, most recently at Firth Park, so some fanfare is justified!
We stayed late so as to feast on camp oven roast dinner, toast giant Aldi marshmallows and then admire three packets of Mystic Fire (when all the cooking was done).
Back in March we first tried one pack of Mystical Fire. It was pretty but the effect is definitely more impressive with three packets!
We finished the night with a sparkler finale. Better than staying home!
