We really enjoy time away in the caravan, it does not have to be far away, just away from home.
For a weekend, if your intention is just to laze around the van, take in the surroundings and blow the frosh off a couple of cold ones, I really see no point in towing for miles and miles after work on a Friday.
With the start of 'The Season Proper' still over a month away the hard bit is going to be resisting sneaking in a cheeky weekend away. This is difficult though, as it's getting close to 'The business end' of Jnr#2's rugby season, and Sundays are match days.
So I think it best to come to terms with the fact that we will not get away until Easter, where Pembrey CC site is our destination, not far but what with people's work committments and the reason given above, it doesn't really matter.
Later in April, herself and I would have been married for 20 years. In 1992 we honeymooned in Cornwall, so that is where we are going back to for a few nights. We are heading to Trewethet Farm CC site on the north coast near Tingadel. A long way to tow for 3 nights, but heyho!
Mayday bank holiday weekend is taken up with a rugby festival at Usk showground near Abergavenny, where the intention is to stay from Friday to Monday on their camping field.
For the late May bank holiday a trip down to St Davids in West Wales is planned. Pembrokeshire is a lovely part of the world.
Destination for the Summer holidays is undecided. We can't have time off at the same time as caravanning friends, so we may just not book anything and wing it when the time comes.
August bank holiday and we are back at Pembrey for the weekend and late October a week at Longleat CC site is planned.
If we manage to fit in a few cheeky weekends amongst that lot, we will have quite a busy season.
So as the title say .......... Patience Patience...........
