We travelled over to a Caravan & Camping Field we know near Chelford, nr. Macclesfield, to test our camping gear ready for our West Country tour this year.
And we are so pleased we did!!
Beauty and Breakdown!
First job was to waterproof the tent - here splashing on the Nikwax
Strange! The tent seems not to want to go up properly?
Turns out it was a pole short - there's a joke here somewhere!?
Chris watching - 'We are not amused!'
In more relaxed mode!
A short visit up the National Trust Garden at Hare Hill, nr Prestbury, Macclesfield
The beauty of colour in the garden
On the way back home - the BREAKDOWN - engine mounting bolts failed and the engine dropped! The only good thing was we were travelling quite slowly (at about 25mph) and were local to Chris' sister!
RAC rescue from Egertons
Happily the repair work was sorted out by our excellent motorvan garage and we collected the van in enough time to set off on our West Country Tour 2015
Back at the marina - finding the missing pole and re-stringing the section
All loaded up for our trip to Penzance for the Ferry for our camping trip to the Isles of Scilly!
