Not quite as planned!

Hmmm, so that did not go quite as planned….

I love camping!  Mr OL quite likes camping and Baby OL?…. Not so much!

Going back to the campsite we used to go to as kids was awesome.  It was just as good as I remember, if not better.  We pretty much had the place to ourselves and it was so peaceful. We braai’d both nights on the beach and sat and had coffee in the mornings staring over the Keurbooms Lagoon.  I LOVED it! 

However it would have been a whole lot better with a child that was not running a fever, up all night and crying all day.  Not so much fun.  I am not sure what is wrong but she is going to the doc today.

Not that this is going to put me off.  She will like camping, I am brain washing her.  Every time I say “we are going camping” I have taught her to clap…. 

Here is the link to the caravan park we stayed in – the Keurbooms Lagoon Caravan Park in Plettenberg Bay.  I love this place!  One of the other guys we went with also camped there as a kid.  In fact his parents still go every December.  It was quite cool reminiscing with him and my sister about the good old camping days.  Our memories are all very different.  I was a teenager most of the time.  We stopped going when I was 21.  My sister was a little kid as there are 10 years difference between us.  Our friend fits right in, in the middle.  I think his parents are going to have quite a few gate crashers on their site this December.

Camping… yay

We have decided to go camping….

I love camping, but it will be the first time we have gone firstly as a couple and secondly with a toddler / baby.  Any suggestions – Cat I have re-read your blog with the tips! Thanks

I am rather excited though.  We are going to the same caravan park that I used to go to when I was a kid. We went EVERY holiday, long weekend or break we could get and some of my best memories are from there.  It will be interesting to see how it compares now to how I felt about it as a kid/teenager.  I guess one thing that will have changed is I won’t be sneaking out with my friends to the club up the road (fake ID in hand) ah…. those were the days.
