I am still recovering from the tiredness that I got from going to Cloud Farm Camping Site and due to my poor eyesight I was thinking of just resting this weekend but my husband has got other plans. If its up to me I just really wanted to stay home but he already told my son and my in-laws who will join us so what is there to do but to join them.
This time we went to Beeches Farm Camping Site which is in Wales. Wales my husband said is another country! So I just told myself GO ME! Camping in another country! We paid toll which is believe it or not amazing for me as we do pay toll in my country so its like in a way I am in my country. Sorry I so treasure small things that reminds me of home. Even paying toll. We pass by a massive modern bridge which reminded me of HK too!
The place is okay. There are a lot of campers when we arrived but there is still so much space. The staff is really supportive! This is the first time that I saw some staff around in my 5 camping experience. And the facilities are good. We have views of mountains too. But I miss the river in the last campsite. I miss the walking path too.
I am so proud that I am getting better at pitching tents. I helped my husband the last time and this time we did 2 massive tents this time. It is really windy too so that adds to the challenge. We were able to do the tent thing in less than an hour. We then just loaded everything in the tent and my son enjoyed following my mother-in-law. A tail if you want to call him.
He also played some badminton which he calls tennis and he is so keen in playing it! Even when night time came. Sadly its too dark for him. As the last time he is the one who asked if we can sleep already. He must be very tired from the travel and from playing around.
The wind blew stronger when we are asleep. In the middle of the night husband woke up to add more rope to both the tent to make it sturdier. It rained too but amazingly we feel cozy inside the tent. Too cozy I think that when morning came my husband and son slept till I late!
I woke up 6am. Went out to see the sun and went back again and walked inside our small tent. I am so bored in waiting for them to wake up that I ventured out on my own. I just walked and walked and saw a lot of blackberries by the road. It is the reason why birds' chirping is loud here too. I just walk and walk and cant find anything thats nice. I headed back. And saw my husband and son out to get me.
This is a bit glamping more than camping for me. In the past we are always cooking in the fire with small amount of food. This morning they brought out a massive cooking range and cooked breakfast of eggs, mushrooms, beans on decent pots and pans! They have tea and have juice and the whole shebang. That is like more than I serve at home even. My son and I just tinker with a Peppa Pig magazine which incidentally feature camping =)
A heavy breakfast I think is vital as after few minutes it started to drizzle to we have to disassemble the tent as fast as we can to not make it wet from the rain. Again I helped my husband David while my son helped too in putting pegs on bags.
I think that it is a nice camping gig for us. Would have been better with more area to explore but this is okay already. Didn't made me too tired. I am so looking forward to doing chores and tasks and blog and comment! Only to find out that we are heading to another site to just see and explore> Tintern Abbey.
