Just got back from four nights at the C&CC site at Moreton near Dorchester, we really had the great weather at long last!
The Moreton site is conveniently near the train station, we had days out in Poole, Dorchester and yesterday, Weymouth. No surprises that the latter was rammed!
The site itself was almost full (about 98% throughout the weekend). In spite of this, it didn't feel overcrowded, I think they may have removed some pitches to increase the social distancing but I've no real evidence for this.
The sanitation blocks are now open which has brought out the tenters, watching some of them set up or pack-up you can tell that for some of them it's their first time, they're so clueless but I guess we all have to start somewhere, fortunately I joined the military and learned properly!
I had a conversation with one of the tenters this morning as I was cooking breakfast on the Cadac, he had a clear case of Cadac envy, I told him of my old boss who'd felt likewise when he was tent camping,
"How did he overcome it"? he asked,
"Bought a motorhome" I replied ( it's true, he bought a Benimar Mileo 243).
It was a bit of a bittersweet trip though, it was the last in our beloved Bobby the IVth, a Bailey Autograph Approach 745, finger's crossed, our next trip out will be in our new Bailey Autograph 79-4i! We've really loved Bobby the IVth, we've been as far north as Copenhagen, to Potsdam in the east and Mimizan Plage to the south. The furthest west we've been is either Brest or Devon. It's been great but it's time to move on!
