camp dinner, friday night

Friday gave us decent weather, but we were moving around the island, and later setting up our campsite at the Blackwoods campground.

Dinner was low-key: garlic bread (fresh garlic); pasta and tomato sauce, and grilled asparagus and mushrooms (all cooked over the campfire, thank you very much!) Granted, I brought a tablecloth this time, which for a picnic table is probably silly, but it was nice to have a "clean" surface to eat from, and then hang up on the line afterwards. It's not as snazzy as it looks though: it's a polyester thing I found on clearance at LinensNThings, ha ha.

I love the tablecloth idea! I will have to add it to my gear. In this instance, a poly cloth one makes sense and is way better than a disposable plastic one (which I'm sorry to say I've used before).

Thanks for the lichen info, I'd heard about lichen as wound dressing, now I know why!

I hope you had a good visit in my lovely Maine.

Thanks Ali! Maine is lovely, and I've always been fond of Acadia. I think the Usnea lichen is actually Usnea filipendula - I was just too tired last night to think about it. http://www.lichen.com/bigpix/Ufillipendula.html
And yes, I think the poly works pretty well - hey, it tolerated the inevitable stains, hung up to dry well, and was easy to deal with.

Nice pics, Margo. Love the lady slippers. I love Maine, too.

Thanks! Glad you liked them! I still have a couple more pics I should throw up there; besides, haven't been in the garden yet and it's been raining, so... :P
