A beautiful day for a bit of a celebration. We got up fairly early to sort out the salads and get everything prepared. It was freezing up at the barn before the sun hit it at 11:30. Adam came by about half nine and sawed up some logs for us. Then Pierre came at 11:30 to start burning them. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves in the sun with wine, good food and great company. As soon as the sun left at 4:30 everyone dispersed again. Dinner of leftovers and then rugby.
