We had put our names forward to this camping event last year as it was arranged by a small friendly local group that we had camped with before. However, as the date approached were a bit concerned that it may be a little too close to our Euro Trip to be able to commit. However, the weather was looking good for the Saturday, the venue looked great, and it would be a nice social gathering before we departed on our main holiday to Croatia a few days later.
The weekend was made all the more special due to the fact we were camping with relatives. Our pitches were in a peaceful field next to the river, which provided entertainment for those that fancied a swim. My paddle board proved a great viewing platform to see the local church a mile or so up stream
My nephew, Oscar showed a natural talent for paddle boarding, and I can see him taking this up on a regular basis. The two night camp over included plenty of alcohol and some great food so all in all a great success.
We left the campsite just after midday and went for a Sunday meal at the local village pub called The Falcoln with close friends Kev and Lorrain. What a great Bank Holiday!
