May half term camping

Campers, festi-heads, hikers, even spelunkers... all welcome here. No fresh air activity too hearty, no fold-up product too desirable.

We had wind and rain to pitch in on Friday, then good weather Saturday, Sunday and Monday (packed away dry - always a good end to a camping trip), but very cold at night. DH decided to make it more challenging by leaving the roof box keys at home - we managed to get our bedding, etc out on Friday, but then had to fit everything into the car on Monday, which was just possible.

DD1 enjoyed herself, and DD2 didn't complain too much, so I think that counts as a success! :D

We had dry Sat/Sun to set up, epic rain & wind Mon-Thurs then bright sunshine Fri/Sat to pack up dry :) New tent is AMAZING in the rain because it has so much space - more free living space than at home, I think ;)

It did become clear that new huge tent + freezer will not fit in our boot, so looking at trailer/roof box options (I sat between the kids for nearly 8 hours traveling, with the tent in the front seat... I'm not a fan of doing that again ;) )

We had such fun when we went for the bank holiday that we've just booked to go back to the same campsite this weekend :D
