I've seen some beautiful castles, fabulous sunsets, vast expanses of sand, huge blue skies.
We've had very heavy showers, blustery winds - worth it? YES
We have been allocated the darkest corner of the campsite that is in shadow every evening when everyone else is BBQing in the early evening sunlight. Worth it? - YES
Take the 4 1/2 hour journey to Seahouses and looking forward to the same back again, followed by the struggle with what felt like an oversized kite for over an hour as we erected the tent. Worth it? - YES.
Open up the tent one morning only to be showered "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" style by earwigs who'd decided that our tent would provide great shelter from the elements. Even now I shudder. But yes, even that WAS worth it.
I've forgotten everything else for 5 days. Even my NLP workbook got pushed to one side.
Camping really is a great way to get away from it all.
Here's a great place to stay.
Best Man Friend and Special Friend bought me this book for my birthday. Its a fabulous representation of the area.
