There's nothing better than the warmth of a fire, especially from a hearth that offers welcome relief from the outside chill and wind so common this time of year. After trudging up and down streets in an ocean-side village of 1627, a fire seemed like a wonderful and warm embrace. Quickly facing the nippy weather again wouldn't be a choice if it weren't for the smoke-laden air. A move toward the open door or uncovered window opening was the only way to get another kind of relief - fresh air to breathe. There was little comfort in the house with the dirt floor and no apparent place to restfully sit.
