This time last year – (well 27th to 30th March actually) we were at the Caravan Club’s recently opened site at Bridlington. The weather could not have been more different. The North Sea at Bridlington was as calm as a mill-pond and we sat outside at a pavement cafe on the sea front enjoying a morning coffee in the warm sun.
In fact the evening was so nice, my alter ego “One Hairy Caravanner” donned shorts and apron and deployed the Cadac to conjure up the evening meal. We had three fantastic days in Bridlington and enjoyed three days of great weather…. and as I look out of the office window now, it’s sunny, still blowing a hooley and the wind chill makes it feel like below zero out there. What a difference a year makes!
Looking forward to June, by chance (well Twitter actually), we came across a site in Glastonbury…. The Old Oaks – http://www.theoldoaks.co.uk Some of the reviews it has received and the pictures posted ment it had to be worth a visit. So we have a few days there and maybe visit The Fleet Air Arm Museum and the East Somerset Railway. On the way back we call in at Warwick Racecourse site for a couple of days so we can visit Warwick Castle again and do a bit of shopping. Now where to go in April and May?
A little landmark passed today at around 12:30. The blog had it’s 55,246th viewer, which means that today, just under three months into the year it has had exactly half the number of visitors it had in the whole of last year. Many thanks to all who have visited, posted and tweeted about Caravan Chronicles.
Here’s hoping for a wonderful hot summer!

We were away too last year and had a lovely few days at CC Slinfold. Booked again for tomorrow but in the light of the appalling weather we have postponed until after Easter. No point in sitting around in a caravan looking at the cold and it costing money. We can do that for free at home and not have to fetch the water!
