Velma loaded and ready for the off

Managed to get the kayak and surfski and paddles secured to the roof and six bikes on the back, with no (out loud) swearing.  Fill up with water and fridge stuff in the morning then off to Beautiful Days for the beginning of our summer holiday.  We will stop in Helston to check our various external loads remain secure, don't want that kayak exiting on the A30 or we will be on the traffic news!

Usually it is me that wants to leave at midnight and park half way, but today it was Pip, Talia and Tom that wanted to head off.  In the end there is just too much to finish off here, and the site doesn't open until 2pm, so we will leave late morning tomorrow and get to Escot House mid afternoon ready for a BBQ in the campervan field :)

It was dark when I finished loading, will add a picture of the laden Velma later.


  1. BDs was amazing, just left and en route north now. Will put a post on blog with bands and add some photo's at some point.

    Hope the rest of the Welsh trip and return home was good. Southbound M5 looking v sticky today.
