How not to go camping in Wales ......

Take three friends, eight assorted children, nine stuffed toys, one non-plussed dog and three tents. Put them all in a field on the Welsh coast. Add wind, rain and a severe weather warning (but of course!) and see how long you can maintain a stiff upper lip!

See how grey - see how miserable - see those guy ropes strain! Hear that flap-flapping tent slap slapping around your head ALL night - hear that rain lashing against the tent ALL day and ALL night. Oh how we laughed. Ahhhhhaaaaahhhaaaaaaboooohoooooooosob.
The kids did things to amuse themselves ....

Such as wearing a stuffed woodlouse as a hat .... and dressing up in girls' clothes and wearing a sock nose protector.
The dog got to dress up too .....

We did have one afternoon when we actually got out of the tent .....

..... but it was still an opportunity for some interesting headwear.

And on arriving home ... look what i'm going to have to deal with for the next few days ...



  1. There's nothing like camping in the UK is there?!

  2. This is the 2nd blog I have just read about very rainy camping holiday - it's just not good weather!!

    Hope it didn't dampen the mood too much and you all had fun (apart from coming home to all that washing)

  3. Uk camping is not for the fainthearted. My oh and I camped in Galway one August, and went into the town, returning to find our tent was now a foot deep paddling pool with floating belongings- joy!

  4. Hi. I have a blog at www.picturecamping.com where I feature people's posts about camping, and I would like to send my readers your way. Of course I would give you credit for quotes and would link back to your site.

    Thanks for considering this,

  6. Yup, that was my summer holiday in Wales LAST year!
