Camping at Three Rivers, Geldeston, Norfolk - 5th September 2020

It's a return trip to the bucolic Three Rivers campsite near Geldeston, just in Norfolk but right on the border with Suffolk, as marked by the nearby River Waveney. Once more we do a spot of canoeing up to the Geldeston Locks pub, and toast marshamallows on the fire. The Boy Phil even rocks up for a day, to help out with canoe duties, and to do a morning jog with Isobel and Allyson. Before that, there's an open-air production of The Importance of Being Ernest in the Oaksmere's gardens
