Our First Happy Hour

We had our first happy hour at Phaeton Place this afternoon.  Our new Campfire In A Can propane fire arrived yesterday, so we got to try it out as the sun went down.  All in all, we are pleased with the unit.  It puts out a fair bit of heat.  Happy hour started at 3 pm and we ran the fire pit from about 4:30 pm to 7 pm, well after dark. Most of us sat around the fire wearing just shorts and maybe a sweater. The fire must have attracted some attention because the ranger came by to check it out.  Definitely less muss and fuss than a real fire and no hassles with finding firewood.  The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed the chance to get out a meet new people.

For some reason I missed a photo of Bob & Julie.  Sorry guys.

    Looks like a it was indeed a happy hour, and not having to split wood is just a bonus.
