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
and on Monday there were even not one
but three Red-necked Phalaropes swimming around on the lake, catching insects.
I found an old tent canvas at the cabin which I suspended under a fallen Birch tree
which the girls loved playing in.
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!
