#6 Campfire Cooking

I’m joining Becky in her February Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Odd, referencing one of these definitions: different to what is usual or expected, or strange; a number of items, with one left over as a remainder when divided by two; happening or occurring infrequently and irregularly, or occasionally; separated from a usual pair or set and therefore out of place or mismatched. Look for #OddSquare.

While we didn’t travel as much as usual in 2021, we were fortunate to enjoy several holidays in our home state of Queensland and one short trip over the border in New South Wales. Join me this month in a retrospective look at the very odd year of 2021.

You can’t go camping and not have a camp fire. This fire pit, with a large tyre rim keeping the flames enclosed, does the job perfectly. But what are those strange arms sticking out on the side?

Hang your billy or cooking pot on one, swing it round over the hot coals and let the fire do its job. Dinner coming right up!

Goomburra Valley QLD, February 2021

Camping is always better with a waterfront site and, at Goomburra Valley Campground, every site has a stunning view of Dalrymple Creek.

We camped here for five days in February and Dalrymple Creek lived up to our expectations.

It was beautiful early in the morning,

later in the afternoon

and especially in the evenings, when the creek mirrored the sky at sunset.
