  1. Friday night was curry night

    Emma & Paul's top-tip for winter: If it gets cold, put on a quilt. If it gets really cold, put on a couple of pooches too.

    Saturday dawned crisp and bright
    [​IMG]

    and lit up the seasonal veg
    [​IMG]


    Earlier risers waited patiently for the later ones
    [​IMG]

    and mrs. moosey waited for the temperatures to rise
    [​IMG]

    until carlot25 finally surfaced from Congi's van
    [​IMG]

    Moosey, meanwhile, was overwhelmed with all the pending excitement of the day ahead

    Puca just enjoyed the sunshine...
    [​IMG]

    ...and Charlie and Muggins took in the view...
    [​IMG]

    ...but Sophie was waiting to get to the beach
    [​IMG]


    Finally, the convoy left the campsite. Wilma lead the charge
    [​IMG]

    And Congi Dave brought up the rear
    [​IMG]

    We parked up at Lytham St Anne’s under a glorious clear blue sky, and attracted a lot of attention from the public. If you were quick, you could get an unrestricted view of the line-up
    [​IMG]

    but before too long, loads of riff-raff came and blocked the view of the vans
    [​IMG]


    The beach was easy to find, but the sea was still miles away
    [​IMG]

    So Sarah amused herself by doodling in the sand
    [​IMG]


    We were joined by some Yips
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And Julie went and rescued some jivedubbins from the campsite
    [​IMG]


    Night closed in
    [​IMG]

    It was all getting too much for Moira & Julie
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The full line-up assembled...
    [​IMG]

    As the dubweisers put the finishing touches to a well thought-out theme...
    [​IMG]

    ... Zoe just rammed as many lights on as possible
    [​IMG]


    Finally, we are underway... we're moving... and now we're queuing :(
    [​IMG]

    We were warned
    [​IMG]
    and it turns out that they weren't kidding.

    Sharon & Sarah remained cheerful
    [​IMG]

    but some others got a bit stir-crazy
    [​IMG]

    while I learned to love the back of the Yipbus.
    [​IMG]

    Two hours in, the convoy had lost a few stragglers and found the rain, but had finally reached some lights
    [​IMG]
    (They got better, honest.)


    Back at the camp, Sarah showed off her work with the carving knife; with the front...
    [​IMG]

    ...and the back of the same pumpkin
    [​IMG]

    The gazebo got quite full of people, booze, cake, crisps, cheese balls, mince pies and more booze
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And Paul's chair got a bit wet from the leaky roof. We found something for him to sit on though - never let it be said that we aren't nice to new members!
    [​IMG]


    Sunday was wet and hung-over.

    The AA man came and had a look at the jivedubbin bus
    [​IMG]
    but apparently couldn't work his magic, as they had to call him again on the way home.


    That's the lot! Thanks to Moira & Julie for a fab time, and to BarneyRubble for the bubbles.
