A weekend of bushcraft

Hi!

I am Alfie and I want to tell you about my bushcraft advantage this weekend.

On Saturday we kayaked on the river. I don’t have any photos but we saw:
•       Herons
•       Black head gulls
•       Common gulls
•       Red shank
•       Green shank
•       Curlew
•       Cormorant
•       Little grebe

When we got home we lit a fire with a flint and steel and cooked rabbit stew. I also made a shooting  target. That night mum and me slept outside under a tarp.

On Sunday we made a little stove from a tin drinking can. We went to the woods and cooked our lunch on it.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Object

This weeks Photo Challenge is to photograph one object. We used a torch to experiment with lighting up our objects and we tried a few different objects. Here are the best two Alfie took. (Mummy typing this week)

This is a green bouncy ball that we lit up with the torch. Patrick wouldn't leave us alone while we photographed it so we let him be in it.

Grannie has lots of tea pots. This is one from the Mad hatters tea party in Alice in Wonderland. We lit it up with the torch to make it's shadow behind.
