Tenting again

Did I say brave last time?  Whereas last week we temperatures in the mid 20s (Celcius) and Maria and I even went swimming in the outdoor pool, we had a very chilly two nights this time.

We arrived at 17:30 and set up camp in a bitterly cold breeze.  What with inflating air mattresses and all it took nearly two hours.  Maybe we need to get an electric pump!  Two nights of below zero temperatures and the day in between only a maximum of 15 - it was decidedly not the weather for light pyjamas and T-shirts!

We struck camp on Tuesday morning (10th October), and managed to get everything aired, dry and into the car just before 9am, which was quite a feat.

Next week?  A cabin or a tent-site?  There are times we favour the one, times the other.  But after a good night's sleep on an inner-spring mattress, rather than a sleeping bag on an air mattress, I'm leaning back to the cabin!

I think a cabin is a good idea.
