Easter campfires, canoeing and cooking

?>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Cooking with fire
2. Breakfast in the great outdoors
3. This bread cooked in the camp oven with coals
4. Freshly caught fish frying on the BBQ for dinner on Good Friday
5. Hot, strong tea at breakfast time
6. Well worn camping essentials
7. Our canoe and an old yabby net we found
8. Sunset
9. Magnificent water and ancient trees
10. An old fence emerging from the water

I hope you have had a lovely Easter.  We have enjoyed two days of camping followed by two quiet days at home.

How have you spent the weekend?

    It looks idyllic Jane. I'm longing for some warm spring days – Easter here is cold as winter seems reluctant to leave. I'm very envious of your camping weekend. A s

      Thanks Michelle, that grill belongs to my Dad and although it is very basic it is very handy and well used 🙂

    I can almost smell the fire, that food looks amazing too!! So glad you had another family camping trip before the cooler weather. We visited a relative's farm for the weekend and had a great time – 4 days is a great length for a mini-break. xx

    Stunning photos Jane. Looks like a great Easter weekend. I had mine in Northern NSW and spent a couple of nights a blues fest. With the highlight of seeing Paul Simon.

    Stunning photos Jane of a lovely family activity. I loved to go camping as a child. As a mum to 2 small boys I am not so sure it holds the same attraction but we need to give it a try soon as I know they will love it too. So long as I have a steady supply of that awesome campfire tea all will be fine 🙂 Hope you had a great Easter.

      Thanks Kyrstie, camping with children does require some organisation and patience, but we have found the more we do it the easier it gets! Your boys would love it 🙂

    Jane, such a beautiful post! The photos are awesome as always, but you really do have the gift to take your readers to other places! We had a pleasant Easter, though quiet as we were both under the weather.
