I went on a kayaking camping trip with my best friend on a remote lake in NW Ontario, DeCourcey Lake. Staying on a little, rocky island we listened to the waves, and watched the stars, sitting by the fire. When it was time to put the fire out, my friend began kicking the coals down the rocky slope to the water below. I ran down to the waters edge to catch the motion of the burning coals. Little comets streaming to the lake to be extinguished with a hiss.
