I know exactly where you are coming from. In my ideal world the stone skimming scene would've been in there too. And even a R/Hr dance. For contrast! But alas, I'm left hoping for an extended edition and at the very least the deleted scenes. I'm just going to have to trust that, without having seen the stone skimming scene, Yates had a good reason.

To play the Devil's Advocate (aka Yates at this point), perhaps the humour and lightness of Ron's scene with Hermione undercut the build up to him leaving. There really isn't that much time devoted to building up Ron's desperate state, it's basically just a montage type scene. As such, perhaps a scene showing Ron having a good time while camping might have been counter productive to Ron's leaving?
