One of my absolute favourite Christmas traditions is our tree hunt followed by a bush BBQ.
Usually close to dusk we head off to visit our friend’s property. They have lots of wonderful potential Christmas trees to choose from. We go with our good friends Fraggle and Mo, and this year their Italian cousin came too 🙂
We trek into the bush looking for the tree that *speaks* to us. Stopping to look at critters along the way.
For me the smell of pine trees is ‘Christmas’ as I always had a real tree growing up. And choosing a tree is half the fun anyway 🙂 Here’s our tree!
After our tree hunt we head towards a river where we set up a camp fire. Along the way we spotted kangaroos 🙂 I’ll have to keep my camera on the ready next time!
The lads collected the wood and got our fire burning bright.
We cooked up our bush burgers; minute steaks with a yummy salad on fresh rolls.
Before eating some camp oven baked damper dripping with honey (recipe here).
We all head home late, well satisfied, tired, and happy 🙂
The next day we decorated our tree and, as Master D said, ‘it’s beautiful!’.
Warm wishes, Kelly
