The Rame Peninsula – Camping Trip Day 4

The last day of our holiday already, and typically we awoke to find a thick sea mist had soaked everything. Thankfully, by the time we had been for a swim in the swimming pool, cooked, and eaten pancakes things were drying out nicely and the sun was out. It was forecast to be hot today...

The Rame Peninsula – Camping Trip Day 3

The weather was a little overcast today so rather than head to the beach we headed along the coast to a Monkey Sanctuary near Looe. It was a rescue centre for monkeys that had at some point in their life been part of the pet trade. Staff stood around the enclosures telling us the life...

The Rame Peninsula – Camping Trip Day 2

Today looked like being a bright sunny day. There was still a breeze blowing and some wind-blown waves on the long expanse of sands at Whitsands Bay. Rather than drive anywhere we decided to walk down the cliffs to the beach today instead. We of course had a swim and pancakes at the campsite first....

The Rame Peninsula – Camping Trip

Our family holiday this year was a week on the Rame Peninsula. We were camping in Ramsey, our VW campervan after racing at the Pivot 24/12 MTB races near Plymouth and had no real plans for the week. Typically after months of long hot summer with blue skies, hot still days, warm nights and no...

Isle of Man 2017 – Day 1

Hoorah, it’s the Easter Hols, Morgan is off school, I’m off work and Anna is off work too. Time for a trip to the Isle of Man in our camper. The trip had actually been planned for a while. However, initially we were going in the car as we didn’t have a camper. We changed...

Loch Lomond Holiday 2015 – Day 4

Not much of a holiday day today really, as it was the last day in Scotland. Rain overnight meant that the tent was wet when we came to pack it up after breakfast and then it was time to load the car and start our journey south. We weren’t heading all the way home as...

Just to finish off our bog posts about our holiday to Dorset, we had an early start on Sunday so that I could compete in the Osprey Sprint Triathlon. The race went well in glorious sunshine, if a little windy. Click here to read my full Osprey Sprint Triathlon Race Report. After the race we had...

Holiday to Dorset – Moors Valley Country Park

As was now customary on this holiday, I headed out first thing in the morning for an early morning walk to find some geocaches. This time I headed in a different direction along the network of Cycle Paths and found a nice little nature reserve to stroll through. I found a geocache as well, but...
