Shelter

This is the strangest goddam campsite I ever saw in my life.

Kinda creepy?

I have to admit that the more I look at it, the more I sort of love it. Was it some kind of tin roofed giant lean to open garage type thing in the woods?

Pole barn?

Maybe. I suspect it's some sort of permanent semi-shelter that's used by a group on a regular basis for camping.

#1. Are those cats?
#2. I LOVE this. I want to live here. Look how tidy it is! Look at the cups and pan hanging on the tiny tree! I have always wanted to live in a place where you have to hang your cup on a tree. Also- the ax. It is basically in the living room.

I think they are animals skins, and there are stuffed possums in the tree back there. Unless they are real possums, I'm not sure.

Remember how well set up we got the campsite at Nancy's?

Yes. That is what it reminds me of. Setting up camp and improving it was 50% of what that was all about.

And then 25% cooking strange things and 25% playing in the pond.
