    After TLB summer camp 2011 VW Olive Jo with daughter and chum and myself had made plans to head south to Plymouth and visit a little place called Whitsands Bay for 7 nights.

    It was her choice and l must say she did well. The arrival weather however was not to my liking!!

    The roast dinner however was thanks to Mr Sainsbury's who refused to sell me vodka because l looked under 25. l could have kissed him :-*

    Crazy golf anyone? We had it all.

    The place is built on a fort to protect Plymouth from Nepolean. Sadly by the time it was finished the weaponry had evolved but the fort does still contain some items from yesteryear with tours on Sundays. We missed them but the groundsman showed us.

    Another day was spent at the beach. Being such a climb it's easy to say that it never gets busy.

    The local beach shops ingenious use of a shopping trolly.

    And l thought it was the Baywatch life guards that were full of muscles...so too were the rocks.

    Prize for parking. Yes that is a 4x4 parked in the middle of the cliff.

    We'd lost our other pitch that we were *cough* borrowing so this is how we looked.

    Our last day was spent at the site enjoying the heated pool. Having only learnt to swim recently the girls tried to get me to do handstands and dive. Afterwards the buses got turned into mobile clothes horses.
