First Night Camping

The campground was nearly empty this past weekend.
Perhaps some were put off by the stormy forecast;
there was just enough time to set up the tent and 
build a fire before it began to rain.

It rained hard all night and the temperature quickly 
dropped but there was no place I would have rather been!
Cold and damp but happy to be in the woods.

The old blue tent held fast, I did some sketches and
a little sock knitting with the help of my flashlight.

After a few days of following the natural cycle of light and dark 
it's a jolt to return to the world of abundant electric lighting.
The first night back I usually just use candles.

More about the weekend tomorrow...
