A Spot of Camping

Well we finally dusted down my parents old tent from the 70s and took it on a trip to Sussex. It was just a one night taster to see how the old girl fared and I have to say for a tent of her age she stood up remarkably well. I slept extremely soundly after a night sitting with friends and drinking wine under the stars. I hope to take her on some more trips very soon.

Here are a few pics from the weekend (given the authentic poladroid treatment!)

    We had one just like that when my parents started to take us camping. We've upgraded through the years to a motor home named "Myrtle"

  2. how perfect. i love the old school look to your camp!

  5. The tent is beyond wonderful! I am entirely jealous!

  6. Coolest tent EVER!

    It looks like you has so much fun!

  7. Wow my parents had a tent just like this one, we had so much fun camping, not tempted to do it with my lot yet though.
