One of the favourite winter activities in Gaultois is to have a ‘boil-up’ in the woods. And just like ‘boiling the billy’ in Australia the traditional pot for heating the water would be a makeshift old tin with a wire handle. We headed out with Rodney and Derek on the Piccaire Trail a little ways before turning off into a smaller track leading to a little clearing in the woods. The sky was blue, the ground white and our spirits lifted as we climbed the hills sharing many a story of cold , crisp days, other campfires, and days gone past. We look forward to more days spent wandering the woods on Long Island and sharing many a hot cup of tea and buns.
