The campfire at my cabin last night

thirty-second campfire

Turn on your sound and you'll hear the bugs, frogs, and the wood popping and cracking as it burns.

I spent last night at the cabin with the two dogs.  I was awakened by a delightful thunderstorm around 4:30 AM, went back to sleep, and woke at 6:30 ready for coffee.  Unfortunately, I didn't take any with me.  The dogs and I got soaked returning to the house, but it was all great fun.

The first thing I did at the cabin was start a fire.  We had rain the day before, so the wood was wet and made lots of smoke.  I love the way the smoke looked floating down into the woods.

I took this shot looking toward the north from my cabin porch when it was almost dark.  I did get to see the "blue moon" before I went to bed; you'd never have known a storm was coming.

Sadie knows food always tastes better when you're camping out.

The dogs went to bed  before I did.

Now that is some Country sound!  I loved that 30 second shot/sound of your camp fire!

The dogs look so cute!  That Annie is adorable!

I loved that sound from the movie clip. Your pictures are great. That smoke sure looks pretty coming from the campfire. I though of the blue moon yesterday but forgot about it last night. Helen

    Glad to hear that your "cottage" is alive & well ... what a great idea that was!  Admirable that you were able to take it from a wish into a reality.  Wonderful for you to have a husband that can make things like this happen.
    NOW ... you just have to worry about a husband & a son.  Love your pix.
