Interesting weekend. Road tested Clover (A campervan) to make sure she was ship shape for an up-coming longer away mission. She’s fine. Invented a new rain / shelter system using a huge chunk of tarpaulin that we’ve got. Shanty Camping.
We were over in Markington near Ripon for a ‘festival’. Quite fun. Ace campsite (just behind the Yorkshire Hussar Inn, in Markington).
We got the very last pitch on the campsite – so lucky to get the one we did right behind the outdoor stage in a great spot overlooking the kids play park which meant we could sit and watch the kids from the comfort of our nomadic back yard.
The music was OK. Apart from perhaps one or two songs, it was exclusively a covers showcase of 50’s – 90’s North American music. Lots of blues, rock, a bit of country and some Motown. Rob Donnelly was one of the key contributors.
A whole roast pig, well worth the wait was served with all the trimmings – this was worth going for on its own.
We turned in comparatively early and got up to enjoy a superb morning in the sun where I cooked some top fried fayre in the van and listened t’ cricket on the LW radio. This blended into a lovely afternoon of sitting, reading and chilling. Hope to stick a few photos up on flickr later.
