Camping season ends with September so I headed out for one final camping weekend. Already the weather was cooler with lower 50°F’s. Bought extra wood to keep the fire warm. It was still enjoyable with the extra blankets packed. I actually slept through the night for once. It was the best sleep I had gotten in a while actually.
Decided to try baking crescent rolls over the fire after seeing it suggested online.
BRILLIANT. Seriously going to do this from now on! Great for breakfast especially with a little bit of honey. I meant to wrap a hot dog up in one for a pig in a blanket but I got too greedy and just ate them all with honey.
Sometimes it just feels really great to get outside, enjoy each others’ company, and (mostly) unplug. This time I put together a “classic campfire” playlist that included Blue Öyster Cult, Carole King, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Kinks, Chicago, The Mama’s and The Papa’s, and others.
The temperatures have dropped this week so the fire served as both a stove and heater this time around. I packed sweaters and fuzzy socks as well. There’s a knitted blanket we always bring too. Its color is cream and brown and always reminds me of the outdoors.
I sometimes get asked what I wear when camping so I took this as I started packing. I brought a few more things than this but mainly this Free People Scottish Fringe jacket was most important item since it was really needed once the sun went down.
