See that tent? Yes, that was my accommodation last night. And my friend in the foreground, getting her lunch ready. She and her husband have a tricked-out Toyota Hilux with a custom-built tray and camping trailer - almost all the comforts of home. They're serious campers, whereas I'm a dilettante in the camping world.
From another angle - showing the back end of my friends' trailer, and also another van in our 'wagon circle'. More friends. There were two other couples as well whose vans were tucked behind these - my little tent was very much the poor relation!
The verdict? I'll do it again. Even with the rain it was still a great little break and definitely worth repeating.
