Summer Sun & Fun

Surviving the winter in Spain and Portugal was so tough! Since we returned home we have been waiting on our new van so have not got away.

However, seeing our April ( the van) pining on the drive we thought she needed cheering up so a quick two nights away was hastily arranged. Being the school holiday week we thought we should book so rang Uphill Marina at Weston -Super-Mare and were surprised they had spaces available. We were off!

A short drive and we had arrived, nice spot by the lake. There were a few other happy campers but the place was relatively quiet.

Big improvements have taken place at Uphill since our first visit many years ago. The boat yard has been spruced up and the campers loos have been improved. There is even hot water in the washing up sinks.

We tried the new cycle path to Brean Down, an easy 3 miles each way on an off road track. A really nice ride on our posh new bikes. I even managed to stay seated on mine!

The track to Brean. Also a nice easy walk.

A proper sea view.

It was sunny at times and not as cold as it looks. We walked into Weston and caught the bus back, quite busy with holiday makers. We had lunch at the Dolphin two minutes walk down the road and dinner at the Ship. A very relaxing two nights!

We are now getting extra excited as our new van will be ready on 9 July so planning some super new trips. Happy days.
