These captured moments were taken last year.
It was July and we’d taken Dolly (our caravan) to a farm nearby our home, for a camping weekend with a couple of other families. It was a baking hot weekend and our friends were due to arrive, from London, later on in the day. We’d finished setting up camp and I’d wandered off with the camera.
Haselbech is such a beautiful place. The view from the hill is magical — there are not many places, in the UK, that still have views of unbroken countryside. These days, the skyline is littered with pylons, telephone lines and windmills.
A little slice of heaven…
This is a rare place indeed and we’re lucky enough that the farm is owned by the parents of some really good friends and, as a result, we’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time there. There’s been festivals and parties held there and, since having the Twinkles, there’s nothing we like better than to head off on a spur of the moment camping trip.
Taking the littles camping is something I LOVE. Particularly when it’s to a non-commercial campsite! Being able to kick of your shoes and run about freely — and safely — is a gorgeous feeling for adults and children alike.
I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can do it all over again!
These pictures remind me so well of such a lovely weekend! Everything was so quiet and as I came back to the van, I could see my three favourite boys, sitting at the table, with the most glorious view behind them.
We’re so lucky to live in this beautiful country. Memories, like these, are ones to be treasured.
