I Heart Camping






Oh, I do , I do!

Camping at Easter is one of the highlights of my year.
We enthusiastically make the annual pilgrimage to Yamba every year for the Easter break. It started 10 years ago with 10 close friends -some couples, some single, pitching a few tents for Easter. It has grown into quite the production and this year we are up to 8 adults and 7 children under 4, 2 buns in the oven. (unfortunately 1 family is unable to come so we are down 2 adults and 2 children). It is a little more hectic then our child free days but still my favourite yearly holiday. Hopefully this years trip will be less dramatic then last years Check out last years amusing exploits here and here.
As you can imagine it is quite the spectacle with so many adults and children and requires precision planning. Lets just say we do not really rough it, with our purpose built communal marquee, large double door display fridge, tv/dvd player (something only for rainy days for to entertain the children) and fully fenced yard to contain the children (last year it was chicken wire- very old MacDonald).

I love having such a special family tradition that we share with such beautiful, dear friends, although next year the children will out number the adults- scary thought!

What are you up to this Easter?

These tents look spectacular and SO romantic. I have only experienced the camping safari once in the hills of Thailand but can highly recommend it! F
