Dower House Camping, West Harling, Norfolk - 27th May 2018

The camping trip, which had been planned for a while, is nearly thrown into disarray as Rachel has chopped her thumb off and so can't go. However this means that instead of our pitch being down with the Hoi Poloi in the no-electric free-for-all, we get a nice spot with hook-up instead, which it has to be said is a bit of a bonus. It's also the first time that the van has been out for absolutely ages, which is nice.
