Saxmundham Camping, Saxmundham, Suffolk - 4th June 2011

Isobel's group of Mommies organise a weekend camping trip to the Carlton Park capsite, just outside Saxmundham. The weather's excellent (although it's windy enough), and the site is not too rigidly organised. Plus, it marks the first proper outing for the campervan this year. After the first evening's ad-hoc barbeque, there's a trip to Walberswick, followed by a stop-off at Aldeburgh to get a pile of the legendary fish'n'chips, which are consumed on the windy beach.
