This was the first time we have camped and been allowed to have open fires. It really makes all the difference when you are sat outside at night, the kids only sat around it a couple of times as they liked to climb in their sleeping bags and read or play on their ds'. We made hot chocolate with cream and they sat out and watched the fire and the beautiful night sky. Its so clear in Wales that you can really make out so many constellations, we saw the big dipper and Orion's belt and so many more. I tried to take a photograph because they looked so clear but they didn't come out :-( I did see my first shooting star though, pity the kids were fast asleep and missed it.
