For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

So many trees, so little time...
Looks like ypu picked a great spot to set up camp. Nice gear too. Funny how somethings become humourous afterward, but not so much at the time.
Looks like you both had an enjoyable time in the pineys. Thanks for sharing your trip an posting pics.
You didn't make your grandson take off his shoes in camp... Did you?

During the 10 days he did a shoreline forage, gathered limpets and winkles, cooked them up himself and ate them. He did some night sea fishing for mackerel and river fishing for sea trout. Didn't catch a thing though (but it was fun trying). He also did a grade 4 rock climb and did a lead climb for the first time.
We also made some camp furniture from twigs and string.
It's a camp stool and can be made in about 10 minutes. When you get old and stiff, it's thing like this that can make life more comfortable.

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.
You don't stop playing when you grow old - you grow old when you stop playing.
Remember, Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may never incur.
Nice trip and report. Trips like this are something to cherish!
I can relate to old and stiff, have to try the stool!
I wish I had some time like that with my grandpa. He died when I was a baby, but I've always had a fascination with his life. Lucky kid there to have a grandpa like you. Thanks for sharin!
