Splashy Bucket Light

Back in The Holler during the 2014 Blue Ridge Rally, one of Mom's friends gifted her with a bucket light.  Dwane and Margaret had their bucket light hanging way up in one of the pine trees and it provided a soft light to their whole campsite (and beyond).  They used a rope to hoist it up high, then ran a long extension cord to it for power.  If you look up above their T@B, you will see it hanging way up high during the daylight hours . . . 

Back in June at the ERU with Pod, I saw a set of bucket lights hanging outside of Travis and Carrie's Pod.  Every night during the rally across the road from me, those little white buckets put on the most amazing multi-color LED light show.  I made Momma Sharon go over and find out the secret from MoosePod's parents.  You see, my bucket light has just one color . . . white.

The little gizmo that Miss Carrie is holding provides the magic.  Well, come to find out, I wasn't the only curious one in the campground, Uncle Rob was gathering info too.  In fact, he told me that if we brought our little white bucket to The Holler, he would make it do magical things too!

And that's just what we did.  On Monday after we all got settled in for our camping week, he installed the magic LED bulb and handed the control to Momma Sharon.  Every single night we went to sleep with a rainbow of colors falling on us.

On Momma Sharon's to-do list is to find something to hang it from rather than put it on the picnic table. If she can't find just what she's looking for, we will just put it on our Dutch oven cooking platform like we did after the first night.

Thanks for coming by tonight to see if I had a Bedtime Story to tell.  I appreciate that and until it's Story Time again, always remember . . . 

"Peace, Love, & Colorful Camping"
