An Optimistic Camping Weekend, Waxham Sands, Norfolk - 22nd September 2018

It's the last camping outing for the van for the season, and we're at Waxham Sands - the camp site out of the 1980s or earlier but which is in a prime spot on the edge of the dunes on the east Norfolk coast - where it's also the campsite's last weekend of the year. It's not exactly tropical as the wind has moved around to the north west, but we battle through it and get a nice day on the beach and a few beers in the Nelson Head at Horsey. Sunday's a wash-out though, so we leg it early after breakfast.
