It continued to howl through the night and I’d like to say that we were rocked to sleep but that would be a lie – I still find it quite disconcerting when the van lurches around at the whim of the wind – at 2am I googled 3 websites to see how strong the wind was and when it was likely to abate. They all lied! I am sure it was stronger than 28mph – not as bad as ole ‘Brian’ but not far off ex-Ophelia – anyhow I have named this one ‘Flo’ and she now appears to have almost blown herself out – so sleep beautiful sleep 💤.
As we needed to do some washing, which entailed hanging around on site, I thought I would do a bit of forward planning so that I have a loose idea of where we are headed, bearing in mind my decision to stick to larger sites with hard standing and facilities. A sort of plan we now have – subject of course to change!
To keep Poppydog happy we contented ourselves with several trips along the coastal path towards Boscastle but turning back before any of the tricky bits – this is also a section I feel quite happy to let Poppy off the lead and therefore she gets about 10 times the runaround value – method!
Aren’t these moody skies fantastic?
Poppydog’s body clock is so much better than mine!
