When Happy Campers meet for breakfast
They came up with the idea of having a breakfast with their friends. Ron and Betty have been visiting the Hot Springs year after year and Ron has been doing breakfasts for Betty every Sunday. So he had a lot of experience when he was the cook for everybody today.

He started it all with a bonfire yesterday evening. After we retired he poured the hot coals into a hole in the ground and placed too cast iron pots with beans and bacon on top. Then the whole thing was covered with gravel and forgotten until the morning. 

Today he dug up the beans and voila, they were cooked to perfection. Old Indian trick!

But that was not enough. Ron prepared a load of crisp bacon, eggs made to our individual wishes and toast as well.

 Soon enough the place got crowded with breakfast-hungry people. Betty had made sure she had a CD with Accordeon music of our very own camp musicians.

Can Camping get any better than this? I don't think so. While a ferocious blizzard has caused major problems in the Ottawa region, we had a fun-filled saturday morning in outstanding weather.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Looks like a lot of fun and great food too. Maybe next year we'll crash your party... maybe. Or, maybe we'll just join it.

  2. Oh how I wish I had been there for you SUPER BREAKFAST!!!! I guess you know that breakfast is my favorite meal.

  3. well I guess it doesn't get much better than that..:)

  4. Good friends, good , food an great weather, like you said it does not get any better!

  5. Breakfast ranks as our favorite meal in our house. But it's the one meal I don't fix - Jim does all the work. I can really make a mess of an egg so he just keeps me away from them. And I'm sure loving this weather we're having.
