first camp of 2017


We had a little trip out with our caravan the other weekend. Just to a very local campsite. It has been in storage at a nearby farm, and needed a bit of a dust off and sort out of all our equipment etc...We have still yet to get our gas cooker sorted so we are still using our temporary one. Except that, it is all ready for the summer.













Mr Leafy was just about 4 months old when we had our first camping trip in this, so I don't think he remembered it much. He loved it!...and as for P, well she was physically hugging the caravan when it rolled up outside our house!



The baby floor chair thingy was a life saver in the van, perfect for containing one very messy tot.

My beloved antique linen pillow case has come to rest in the caravan as it is full of holes : (


We could only stay for one night due to P's Pre-school and a very poor weather forecast, but we did manage a trip to the other side of the Island, Ventnor Botanic Gardens (a big fave of ours) and Steephill Cove for some tea and cake.




There will be more camping updates coming shortly as I think we are going camping in about a weeks time!
