Well, we thought we’d experienced high winds up here but we were wrong! At 1.30am we met gale from the north! the tent caved in at one end. Although it remained in tact we think some of the tent poles have bent but we’ve righted it today ready for the next onslaught!
We’re considering buying an anomemeter to establish how high these winds are we’re getting, as we think they’re in the 60-70mph bracket. Dean was out there last night chucking stuff into the back of the ‘van as the barbecue fell over, alerting us to the tent giving in. After that he went to bed, leaving me to sit up all night keeping an eye on the tent to make sure it didn’t fly off across the campsite! I did managed to watch the second series of Gavin & Stacey though – cracking!
So today has been spent snoozing on the sofa. Good news though in that we received ‘most’ of our new uniforms today…although Dean is missing the most important part – that being his waterproof coat!
