we have been on our holidays
we went camping over at Teeside - Stockton-on-tees that is
we went in my car which is called Ermintrude - a 1980 series 3 long wheel base station wagon
we always consider the journey to be part of the holiday - so we started and finished with an adventure so to speak !!!!
as you can see we don't believe in 'roughing it' when we go camping
even though there was only 4 of us going this time we still took a decent size tent - why be uncomfortable when you don't have to be ?
we slept in this side on a queen sized double height air bed and the kids were in the other side on their own air beds.
one of our days out was to a quad bike track which was quite local - to say the boys enjoyed it would be an under statement
we also visited lots of other towns and villages with Redcar and Saltburn-by-the-sea being of note
my dad will remember the 1 in 4 hill (25%) down into the bottom of Saltburn - yes it was fun in the land rover !!!!!!!!!!!
the north east is very under rated for holidays we think - but we enjoyed it and the weather was mostly good
why fly off to the Costa-who-knows-where when there are so many interesting places on your door step so to speak ?
