The Best of Friends

The best sort of friends are the ones that you can go camping with.  They are the ones that wont judge you by your bonfire perfume and will admire how you rock your wooly camping socks with Birkenstocks. They support your off the cuff parenting techniques out of fairness and appreciate that there is very little soundproofing woven into nylon canvas. When you are two years old, everyone is your best friend, when you are six friendships, can run their entirety in less than 12 hours in the middle of field, leaving a fleeting impression that lasts a life time and there are some friendships that touch your heart forever. 

A really good friend can make the world a better place. To share be able to share a secret with someone who understands is as incredible as an ocean view. Josie has always valued friendship and it is lovely to see her able to form and develop compassion and empathy for others. 

Then there are the Dads. The father / daughter relationship is one that forms a foundation for so many situations in your life. If only I could walk along the beach arm in arm with my dad and ask his advice.  There  is after all no-one you can rely on quite like you dad.

And it wouldn't have been camping without toasted marshmallows.
