Alley Spring Camping Trip - Part 2

I think the phrase "plumb tuckered" best describes how we all felt Saturday night. The little boys turned in and the big boys began the traditional bottle art by playing in the fire.
We've never mastered cooling the glass slowly enough to keep it from cracking, but that doesn't stop us from trying. This was Rob's melted glass masterpiece.

Before we left the area, we stopped by to look at Alley Mill. The mill wasn't open, but the grounds were still worth the stop. We ran into Derrick and Thomas who had stopped to do a little exploring of their own. We took this picture with the timer on the camera before we ran into Derrick and Thomas. Not my best work, but still proves we were there!
We got home Sunday afternoon and began the daunting task of unpacking and putting everything away again. Camp math is a funny takes at least 3 days to get ready for a 2 night camping trip and at least 3 days to clean up after you get home. But yet, it is still worth the effort. It was a great weekend!

I admire brave souls who go camping. What is this bottle art? I'm not familiar with it. It sounds intriguing and ... a bit dangerous.
