Good evening,
I heard yesterday from some friends who described their camping holiday in Devon as disappointing. As they provided more details it became blindingly obvious that 'disappointing' was something of an understatement. Numerous daytime activities (riding/cycling/being out of doors) had to be at best curtailed or at worst cancelled, but they held on to their fighting spirit until their fourth night under canvas. It was raining -nothing unusual there- but shortly after midnight it became biblical & relentless, flooding the campsite in a matter of moments. Tents came adrift from their moorings as the already sodden ground turned to soupy mush & at 2.30 am the site & all its occupants had to be evacuated.
They have now had 2 weeks to recover from their ordeal & a disastrous holiday has now become a successful dinner party story. The only reason I mention this here is that our hardy & resilient friends now want to pitch their tent in the garden in a bid to get their much needed camping fix. I've looked at the weather charts for the next few hours & must call them immediately to encourage them to leave it for another day as we've got heavy, thundery showers pushing in towards us from Northern France. They won't be with us for long but they will certainly make their presence felt before conditions start to settle down for the weekend. So hold on tight, it'll bet wet tonight & then -if things go according to plan- the weekend could be rather nice. Almost summery, in fact....
See you later,
