We've been off to Norfolk to try out our tent!!!
Mr BM and I had booked the week off work,and the weather forecast was good, so we decided to take the plunge and head off on our first family camping trip.Just a short break,after the madness of the bank holiday weekend had died down.
Being new to this ,the packing took me ages.Trying to remember everything we would need.Finally ,we squeezed it all into the car and set off,heading East.
North Norfolk is getting quite familiar to us now as we have visited it both last year,and the year before.Usually in our regular holiday accommodation,a static caravan.
This was an adventure ,trying out camping,so heading somewhere we knew made it a little less daunting.
We chose a site which was recommended by friends,and very nice it was too.Lovely clean loos and showers,which was a priority for me!
Loads for the boys to do too.I'm sure we will return for a longer stay one day.
The camping areas are dotted amongst heath land.....
The heather was looking gorgeous......
And there was a great view across fields towards the sea.........
Here is our tent in the early morning sun .....
We had the luxury of electric hook up ,so I took along some home comforts to make life easier....
This table is actually our camp table from my childhood,it's a little shabby nowadays, but I still love the bright red colour.
Here's a cosy bedroom........
Warm sunny days were followed by very chilly nights. Our little fan heater kept us warm whilst we played cards. Thick P.J.s and socks were in order for bed.
I know the lovely weather made a huge difference,but I was surprised how much I liked the whole experience.
The boys had a great time too, popping to the site shop for supplies, fetching drinking water ,and even washing up at the outdoor sinks.
I've got some pretty sea side pictures to share with you ,if you can indulge me ,it will be the last time this year.
They will have to wait till tomorrow though as I'm pooped now!
Thank you all for the amazing comments on my last post. Glad to see I'm not alone in being a little self conscious about my hobby.
