Glastonbury Festival June 2022. Three nights, four very long days in the heart of Somerset.

Overnight on the Jurassic Coast April 2022.  From Worth Matravers, probably Dorset’s prettiest village, to deserted Tyneham village, one of the saddest. And a hike along the southwest coast footpath between St. Aldhelms and Winspit, completing the section between Poole and Weymouth for us.

Appledore and Lynton March 2022. Two nights of gales and rain in North Devon.

New Years Eve 2021 on Portland. A last-minute overnight stop at Portland Heights, overlooking the harbour and fireworks at midnight.

Family Jamboree in the Lakes July 2021. Three nights in glorious weather, right in the middle of the Lake District.

St. Mawes and St. Just in Roseland May 2021. Two nights in a very damp Cornwall, unusually for us, on a campsite, walking and sightseeing.

Tyneham & Studland April 2021. A tentative post-lockdown two-night trip to the Dorset coast. So much has changed since our last visit, access is much more difficult in many places

Bath – December 2020. Our annual Christmas visit, with social distancing in mind.

Lymington and Keyhaven – October 2020. A wet and windy weekend going back in time and enjoying nature at its best.

A Summer Road Trip around Devon – September 2020. In 1949, my parents Mo and Alan undertook a Summer Road trip around north Somerset and Devon in an Austin 7 Ruby (749cc and 7hp). Seventy-one years later, Linn and I attempted the same route in a motorhome (4.2 tons and 7.6 meters long). We tried to recreate some of their photos, and have added a few of our own.
