Thoughts on a perfect camping morning

Sunday morning, middle of the holiday weekend, I found myself in a perfect camping morning-entirely by accident. Lots of people choose this weekend as their first camping outing of the summer. We couldn't go this year; there was too much else crowding the plate. But I managed to sneak in a wonderful, unexpected camping morning, anyway.

You see, I was awakened first at about 5:30 am, then second at about 6:00, by my sons' alarm clock-which was somehow set to go off as "music, then alarm" while the boys were away at their mother's house. Of course, I was angry initially, having been unintentionally cheated out of a couple hours sleep time. I was wide awake, though. Not much to do about it, but to stay up and make the best of it. It was far too fine a morning to waste in anger or frustration.
