Remember when we were all going to 21st birthday parties, then engagements, weddings, baby gifts, 30ths, 40ths……well for us it now is a series of 50ths.
Last night one of our mates celebrated this milestone. It was a fantastic party out at his place. There were little kids, teens, all of us mid years ones, right up to some oldies. Everyone had a ball. You can’t go wrong with a barbecue followed by a bonfire.
We camped overnight and took our new camper trailer out behind the car. It goes well and doesn’t look too small and silly.
Everyone settled in around the fire. I took out some sparklers and the little ones had great fun with them.
I can just sit for ages looking right into the fire, finding different creatures and faces. It was the perfect night for a fire, no wind, not too cold and nice and starry (which was great after the weather forecast of rain).
It was a very late night, but we were all up again relatively early to tuck into bacon and eggs around the remains of the fire.
What a stunning view. Oh, how I wished I had a camp oven of stew to put on those lovely coals.
