Bushcraft weekend

What can be more perfect than spending a long weekend in an English woodland? We've been lucky enough to enjoy a few weekends away this year, all to the Swift Valley bushcraft meet. It's an informal get-together held roughly once a month and it's such great fun!

Last weekend, we did have a few torrential downpours (hey, this is a very typical summer!) but even that didn't put the gaggle of children there off racing round at full speed. They made swings, climbed trees, played hide and seek and had the times of their lives. We drank too much and stayed up into the wee small hours laughing our socks off round the fire. Fun all round then! :)
