Girls glamping

I've just had a wonderful few days with my girls, and grandchildren, camping on the edge of the New Forest in Hampshire at Merley Court

I haven't camped in years so it was a bit of a different experience to just pulling up in the Nomad wagon and putting the kettle on. You have to first find your kettle and then find and assemble the cooker, hmm..... and then you have to light it with a cigarette lighter, not an ignition button, hmm..... bit of a challenge that one :-)

We had a wonderful time, chilling on the the beach......flying the kite

Digging holes and making sand castles all day......

Where did that sun go?

and then a bit of putting.......I just know I can get that ball in the hole.....

And there was just time for a bit of driving practice before tea, did someone mention food again??

........and something a bit more scary for one of our older members, a proper champion, he managed to run for 26 steps, no mean achievement inside this ball.

I hope he never gets as ambitious as this amazing young man that we saw at the Dorset Steam Fair.

It wasn't all thrills and spills, three of us girls went for a pamper at the spa with treatments too, so I was glammed up for a bit with a lovely manicure, thank you Pru, it was a fabulous day.

And of course there had to be time for technology at the end of a very busy day 

Thank you vey much to all of you for a very special trip.

Sounds like a lovely family holiday and the weather was kind too. My legs don't fold easily so I'm no good at camping! At my age a well fitted caravan is the nearest I want to get to it but I admire those who do it properly.
