The report from camp is that it was "really good and I want to go back next year."

One sad bit of news, though. Due to the extreme fire danger level in So.California right now, they were allowed NO campfires. (In this case the, "it only takes a spark to get a fire going" turns out to be a life and death matter.) I understand why this has to be, but for me the nightly campfire was practically the whole POINT of camp. Let's pray for a rainy winter so they can have proper campfires next summer.

I remember a fire ban year where we sat around a big flashlight with red and orange tissue paper around it. Just not the same.

My son went to an overnight this past weekend at Leo Carrillo beach. I was surprised they got to have their annual enormous bonfire.

And the rain (truthfully it really was a glorified spit up here) was very very very welcome, wasn't it? We could hear the ground sucking it up and asking for more.
