    At The Cottage

    I really love sitting around a campfire at night. Especially in the summertime up at the cottage. The smell of the air, the bright stars in the sky, and the company of great family/friends. There's usually lots of talking, laughing and telling of stories. Some of which I think...

    Damn Marshmallows

    Especially the color of the flame at night. When the moon is brighter than usual and it makes the flames orange essence so sensitive to the eye. The one thing I hate about campfires is someone always brings the damn marshmallows, but only one bag. It's like..you really expect us...

    The Warmth Of Fire, Family And Friends

    Many summer holidays and weekends of my youth were spent camping with my family. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins were always there, all in tents and small campers set around a fire. My grandfather, always needing to be in charge, tended the fire, keeping it going all...

    Everything Fades Away

    I don't know what it is about fire, especially a campfire, but I get lost in it. Everything just goes out of my mind. It's really peaceful.

    Good Times

    Some of the best times in my life were around camp fires.  Songs, skits, holding someone under a blanket.  Quite music or just quite.  Miss it.

    Fire Therapy

    I Like To Feel The Heat On My Face.

    I can sit and stare at the flames of a campfire all night. I like to poke the fire around with a stick and keep everything burning. A small steady fire is perfect. You can get close and stay warm while you talk with your campmate about whatever comes up. Camping and campfires...

    Campfires Are Meaningful To Me.

    Whether it is a campfire in the backyard with friends or at our campsite with family, campfires are comforting. We talk, be silly, cook in Dutch ovens, roast marshmallowsand make s'mores, warm up, watch the flames, and sometimes fall asleep around the campfire.

    There are few things that really feel like summer has arrived, but I think a campfire is my number one thing, followed closely by firing up the grill for the first BBQ of the season, hearing the crack of fireworks, having a cold beer just as it's starting to get dark, when it's...

    Once Before

    And I loved it. Not really because everyone was there, but because it was dark and cold outside and the firelight was so soothing, relaxing. I love a campfire, its just so great. A small light in the darkness.

    Best Thing About Camping

    If you go camping you must have a camp fire. Sitting around, chatting, drinking, cooking marshmallows and hotdogs. Throwing a new log on. Always needing to move because of the smoke. It's just fun being at a camp file.
