Welcome to my
Sunday Monday Sevens – a post where I share seven (or so) photos of my week away from the blog. A little late this week, because we’ve been on holiday.
For some time now we’ve been thinking we might invest in a motor home. So the sensible course of action seemed to be to hire one and see if this particular pipe dream was something we might really want to materialise.
We decided to take a small trip to Wales – picking our van up at Bridgend and driving on to the Gower peninsula.
I confess it didn’t start well. Once we’d packed everything in the van, with Harry happily following us in an out, we shut the door to set off and, despite me sitting in the back with him, Harry freaked out. We hadn’t even started the engine. We calmed him down and left the hire lot, but Harry was shaking and flinching at every creak and bump of the van.
We headed for the nearest service station and walked Harry around to settle him down then returned to the van to set off again. Harry was calmer, but still not completely happy. By now it was also raining and the roads were full of rush hour traffic – after a rather stressful hour and a half we arrived at Port Eynon. Very tired we had tea in the van and settled down for the night.
I’m pleased to say from there on things picked up. The weather changed and the campsite was so lovely and LH was so sure we don’t need to have such a big van – so he didn’t need to drive anywhere else in it – we decided to stay at Port Eynon for the week.
Harry and I loved our early morning walks on the beach, while we left LH in the van to sleep in.
We found some interesting early morning finds washed up by the tide…
The weather was just fabulous…
We had some lovely coast walks…
And walks on the beach at Oxwich
And far to many portions of fish and chips
And we generally chilled out…
I’m pleased to say Harry was much happier with journey back and we’re planning on visiting the camping and caravan show in November to explore more, smaller motor homes.
Until next time,
