A wholly restorative camping trip!

I’m still clinging on to the rest, relaxation and recuperation that last weeks’ camping trip delivered!

I love my camping – as many will know – but this trip surpassed my expectations – partly because we booked it so late and I was assuming the campsite would be overflowing!

Here’s the view we had from our tent!

Not a bad view to wake up to!

For most our time, we had this forest area to ourselves – and when it did fill up on Friday night (with what the campsite owners described as ‘weekend warriors’) it suddenly felt like Picadilly Circus!

I didn’t manage to get as much sketching done as I would have liked, but here’re are a few little ditties that I did during our stay:

So nice to be sketching on location!

And a closer up version of this A5 study, (which was my pick of the bunch!)

I’m due on another little camping sojourn next week so am keeping my fingers crossed for a similarly restorative experience then too! (Though at the moment, I’m struggling to find a site that can accommodate us!)

  1. I envy you, John, but unfortunately my body won’t put up with sleeping on hard ground any more. But with age comes a certain wisdom and this wisdom tells me that you sketches are very very good and that your dog had a good time, too.

    1. Haha, I tend to agree with Rob but we have recently invested in some extortionately expensive air beds that have made a world of difference! Really appreciate the comments about the sketches, I do quite enjoy doing these and often find that they’re much more successful than my larger efforts!

I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about this
