This is a picture of our 'kitchen'. It's hard to see, but that is an abandoned vinyl table cloth we rescued from an empty campsite and used to shield our picnic table and stove. It's held precariously in place by two dead tree limbs and actually did a good job to ensure we could cook with our kerosene stove.
Please don't misunderstand me, we had a really good time! Hence the dancing you see here. For a bunch of amatuer campers, we managed to feed ourselves and stay fairly warm in the cold nights. My lovely husband was a great camp cook and my dear Duck actually went swimming in the lake that was 'refreshing' to say the least (we don't call her Duck for nothing)!
We liked it so much, we're going back this weekend. Only this time we have extra tarps and warmer sleeping bags - that should ensure it is sunny and warm, right?
