Around the firepit

A couple weeks ago we took advantage of a mild afternoon when it wasn't raining for a short time, to try out our new firepit.


Our primary reason was to get rid of a whole box of old financial papers which we couldn't recycle, and it would have taken forever to shred. The fire made short work of them, and also gave us an afternoon of entertainment.






Towards the end I brought the dogs out but kept them on leash. Navi isn't as close tot he fire as it looks. Barclay actually just laid down in the grass and took a nap. It was quite relaxing to just sit and look into the coals and watch the flames dance around, and the red light as they burned from within was fascinating. I could sit and watch a campfire all evening.
