First weekend at the cabin 2017

On Saturday it was Teres’ 40th birthday party

but on Sunday morning we were up early to drive to the cabin.  Monday we were both not working  and on Tuesday (today) it was a bank holiday, so we would have a long weekend.

The girls immediately began searching for worms so that they could go fishing

They did not catch any fish, but they did manage to make fire with a firesteel and we then grilled sausage over the fire

After eating so much sausage, Kelly needed to rest.

There were many wading birds displaying at the cabin including Wood Sandpipers

I found an old tent canvas at the cabin which I suspended under a fallen Birch tree

I also made a new knife while I was at the cabin

using moose horn, leather and Sallow root bur.

I also had time to make a sheath for it.

It’s so nice to be able to get back to the cabin again!
