Well, the camping trip was eventful to say the least! The first night started out ok..the weather had stayed dry, we'd found the camp site without any trouble, we'd got the tent up in a field to ourselves, with a lovely view of the Welsh mountains...
Off to bed we went at 9.00 pm...early by our standards at home, but we were very tired from the 5 hour journey and putting the camp site together. About 11.30 some campers were coming back from the pub and started singing and shouting..we put up with this for about an hour, as it was Saturday night and maybe their first night, and then just tried to sleep.
As the music and singing died down the wind cranked up...to the point where the tent was shaking and flapping and making so much noise that sleep was impossible! This went on all night and all the next day and night! A lot of campers went home early.
On the second night I attempted to sleep in the tent but the sound of the wind flapping the tent got my immagination running wild..I thought that the poles that ran through the tent giving it its shape would snap and go into my eye! So I got up and moved into the car...I pulled the stuff out of the back seat, pushed down the front seat and got comfy...I did actually sleep much better...my husband braved it in the tent but didn't get much sleep due to the sound of the wind..it was very loud and aggressive.
