The end of summer?

The Bank Holiday was wonderful in Swanage. The weather was glorious and everyone seemed to be having a great time on packed beaches.

On Monday John and I went on a Butterfly and Moth walk at Durlston Country Park.
Very interesting, we learned a lot. Durlston is a lovely place to visit with a great deal going on

Bank Holiday weekend

Bank Holiday weekend and lovely weather, there is an air of celebration on the site exemplified by this lovely decorated tent, it is actually the baby's birthday and it looked wonderful in the sunlight.
It will be sad to say goodbye to all the people who have been here through the school holidays, only one week before most return to school.
Meanwhile it is busy and bright and seems a long way from the muddied days a few weeks ago

Leo's Sponsored Walk

The other day Leo, who has been staying with his family at Tom's Field through August, had the idea to do a sponsored walk. Leo is only 7 years old but he drew a poster and collected a lot of sponsors from the campsite. He did the walk on Sunday with his mum walking from Durlston via Dancing Ledge, Winspit to Worth Matravers. He raised over £130.00 for the Life Boats in Swanage.

Solar Water System

At last, John has started the long held plan of making a solar powered water system using the large area of the Nissen Hut. Here seen with Greg making a start. Will it work? We'll see!!
The weather is lovely at present the soggy field seems a long way off.

Campsite crossstitch

One of our customers brought in this cross stitch picture. She had been inspired by the whole stitch process that we had talked about and incorporated various aspects of Purbeck and camping into this original piece of work.


What a difference a week makes. The fields are dry, the sun is shining it has been a lovely end to the carnival week. The fireworks were spectacular last evening.

I have kept meaning to say thank you to the people who brought a Rosemary plant for the 'growing' herb garden. It is a lovely contribution so thanks.

John and I walked up to the obelisk at Ulwell this morning, the fields were alive with butterflies and glowing with so many wild flowers
