Cool Summer holidays !

Post by Nifty staffy on Sat Jul 06 2019, 22:11

For some of us (geographically speaking) the summer holidays are just around the corner.
Advantage - longer days, better weather, chance of being able to take time off to make the most of it
Disadvantages - more people out and about can lead to restrictions (access to public beaches, for example), weather too hot (scorching tarmac, risk of heat stroke and the such)

I’m going to try to take the girls out on local bridleways, to the woods, a little more often during the weekdays after work. Would like to take them to the beach but that will have to be out of season in the autumn.
Would like to take the girls hiking too but need to wait for Opium to grow up a bit first, probably for next spring for her to be able to handle the greater distance.

What have you got planned, what can you recommend ? Big Grin

We go camping in Romney Marsh area every year. The campsite is on a small working sheep farm & our pitch faces a field full of ewes & the current year's lambs.

That sounds nice. Smile
Camping in a tent the traditional way as opposed to being in a solid structure I presume ?
Isn’t that a bit more complicated with canine members of the family (especially those with houdini tendancies) ? Blushing Laughing

Yes, we have an air tent (inflatable 'poles' instead of fibreglass), but no dog at the moment.

Air tent ?
I admit I did do a search on the net. It looks like a standard luxury tent only easier to set up ? Cool ! Cool
