Swarms of mosquitoes feasting on exposed flesh kept us from hanging around outside the camper until now. Finally the temperatures dipped to a range that kept the pests to minimum - well, that and powerful bug spray and sitting in the smoke from the fire. But tonight was the night for the steak dinner grilled on the open flames followed by s'mores. It was worth every itchy bite.
When some of us left for the beach, C was surprised as the raccoons began to circle. One snuck up from behind and snagged the bag of marshmallows right from his side, while another snatched a potato from the fire. No timidity in these creatures!
