Camping weekend

Regular readers of the blog will recall that, despite encroaching middle-age, we do still 'enjoy (??)' bi-annual camping weekends, were a crowd of our old friends meet up for a few days. Bit of walking, reminiscing, eating and drinking very much being the order of the day :-)
Well, this weekend we're off to a campsite in Northumberland, very close to Holy Island - so, not far for us to drive fortunately ... but a much longer trip for those coming from the South.

Certainly hoping for slightly better weather than the last gathering in May ...

So, will be a quiet weekend on the blog-front - how will you cope :-))

The tent in the picture looks like a great place to have a council meeting this weekend

If they had a tent then they could sell the City Chambers and that would solve the budgetry problems at a stroke.

Congrats on yet again getting in the papers.

"Edinburgh councillors Ewan Aitken, Andrew Burns and Ian Perry are to report to her on renewing local government, with hints this will include control of budgets at council level and young people taking part in decisions."

I'll supply a press cutting service at reasonable cost if you are up for it.

Hope the camping is going well. I see you also have the ability for a ride nearby - good luck.

John ... kids tried the horse-riding, I was a bit worse-for-wear so managed to avoid it :-)

In Arizona all evening rides are done in the "worse for wear" condition. It's the best way to get home without ending up in the drunk tank.

When you fall off, it doesn't seem to hurt as much either. Even if you fall off most nights in a week.

John

Believe it or not, I have ridden a horse in Arizona ... back in 1984!

Sadly, I was totally sober and can atest that falling off was bloody painful ;-(
