    Hello all,

    As usual I like to start with a photo:

    Did a family trip to the beach today and while my bushcrafting was light did use my Bushclass skills to set up a tarp shelter to keep us out of the sun. Found four pieces of driftwood and used them as sand anchors and with my knots from basic and intermediate I gave us a spot out of the sun. Btw this is one of the Bushcraft Outfitters 10x10 if you were wondering.

    I only had four 6' sections of paracord and could have used a couple more 6' sections to make it really sturdy but it held up for the afternoon and practicing with the sand anchors was fun.

    I also brought my haversack with my Bushclass fishing kit but the tide was in so really didn't do any fishing. Started using a Tuff Possum Pouch that @The Woodsrunner sent me as my fishing kit bag. So got a few photos of it as well.

    Honestly most of the afternoon was spent just kicking back with my family. It was my four month olds first time at the beach and it was fun to watch her the Pup having a good time.

    Talk about a great day. Just seeing the pictures relaxed me. :) Bet it was nice to hang out with the family on the beach like that. :)
