Today we have returned from the wilds of Kent, where we've been caravanning for a few days over the summer solstice. Sadly the weather was far from summery, and we've brought back a sopping wet awning which we will hopefully be able to lay out in the garden to dry tomorrow.
However, the aim of the outing was achieved, ie to see how we would cope on a small CL site with no toilets, shower block, washing up area, drying room etc. The only site facilities were electric hookups, a water stand pipe and a toilet disposal pit.
Nevertheless, the caravan performed very well, and we gave all of its 'mod cons' a thorough trial.
Of course the cost of taking weekdays off is that I will have to spend the next two weekends working hard to make up for lost time but no matter. Along with Small Dog I'm counting down the days to our next camping trip but in the meantime here are some views of our bucolic waterside campsite pitch, deep in the heart of the Kent countryside.
