Happy Campers

A little person they know had a birthday.  
A camping celebration was arranged.
Amongst the trees.  
Balloons and food.  Walks and games.
The weather was kind.  Still air and birdsong.
The 'diver' came with fresh scallops.  
Mrs B made a sauce, creamy and rich with garlic and wine.
Late into the evening ... talking, laughing, watching the flames dance.
Thank you for the invitation Master M.
Mrs Fruit - camping goddess ... you rock!

These photos are so awesome Jane, it looks like a serious amount of fun to me. Thanks so much for that kind reply about the interview tomorrow, I'm nervous but I'm hoping I can do my best!

Buongiorno cara Marina.
Conosco bene i campeggi inglesi, sono tutti verdissimi, grandi e bellissimi.
Il nostro piccolo camper è sempre molto felice di passarvi le vacanze, puoi immaginare noi ;o))
Un abbraccio, *Maristella*.
