Well as usual we went to Hale for the May long. Got there Thursday and pretty much had the place to ourselves.

Hey Chris, I think you left something on the roof, better crank'er down again

The weather was so nice it was time for some blender drinks

The pups sure enjoyed it

But of course, where does a wet dog go to shake it off?

Why go to get firewood when the mog can just bring it to you?

Tim heard there was work to be done so he was heading in the opposite direction! :D

Musta been a union jobsite, 2 guys working and the rest standing around supervising! :D

Ben wasn't impressed

All of a sudden someone called a coffee break and everyone sat down

Weiser was sleep walking with his margarita

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6723.jpg

His wife taught us a game called 'bum darts' you have to waddle over with a twonie between your butt cheeks and drop it in a glass

Funny thing was when it was my turn, all that came out was a loonie! :dontknow:

This camp fire brought to you by the fine folks at Stihl

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6736.jpg

We decided to have a small fire

whoops...wrong picture

Weiser's wife decided this was a good time to attack Sas

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6771.jpg

I think she just finished with Tim as Tammy was rendering first aid

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6804.jpg

Looks like Bruce is about to get it too!

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6783.jpg

I think it was because he had to show the young guys that yer just never too old to funnel a beer

Awesome campfire, thanks to everyone who helped in the creation of it, I'm sure it was seen from space. The sparks were going up at least 80 feet in the air

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6915.jpg

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6916.jpg

It sure provided warmth and light all through the night

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6988.jpg

We gave Bruce the night off and brought in a relief cook

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_6999.jpg

It was such a great night, even the dogs were just chilling soaking it all in

http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y112/mikewild/Hale%20May%20Long/maylong%2009/IMG_7010.jpg

We did some exploring down to second beach. Found some cool fossilized rocks

Great pics looks like a FUN filled weekend. Kudos to Fireman, what a blaze!!

Where is the entrance down to second beach?? I know the 'easy" way to the left from the top , and the 'Hard " way to the right...but is there another road down?
thanks in advance...thanks for sharing all the great pics!
