Bank Holiday weekend we decided to go camping , even though the forecast was for rain, rain and more rain. we were not put off by this , and off we set, we arrived at Blaithwaite camp site and we put up the tent, when i say we i mean Ian, Dylan and whoever else would help out 🙂
Well the tent was put up successfully,i sat in the caravan of a friend and awaited the arrival of their daughter , son in law and 2 children our friends from “The North” .
when Nick and Kathy arrived we decided to have a Chinese take away – in their caravan 🙂 mmmm was fantastic. A couple of glasses of wine and a chinese – camping at its finest.
Another couple of friends were also on way Bryan , Marie (Kathy’s sister and their daughter Anna ) It was going to be a fantastic weekend.
And it was , while we were there we decided to do a walk up Catbells
Of course the men had to plan the route , which they did , and the walk was fantastic , it started off dry but by the time we had finished , we were absolutely soaked , but it was all good fun .
When we got back to the camp site the sun came out and we decided to have a BBQ, but of course the children decided to play first….in the mud …it had rained a lot
We sat around drinking beer and wine and watched the kids get very very muddy , that was the fun part , taking them to the showers and getting them cleaned up was not, of course this was women’s work as the MEN had a BBQ to organise.
But the BBQ was fantastic , actually we had 2 , one for the kids then one for us adults a little later , yum yum yum .
But sadly all good things must come to an end and on the Bank Holiday Monday we decided to pack up and come home , as there had been a severe weather warning 😦 and pack up we did , it was sad saying goodbye to our friends, but it had been a cracking wkend, oh that reminds me we went home via the cheese shop in Wensleydale and bought some cracking cheese .
