Camp Bestival – Day 3 (Sunny Sunday)

After Soggy Saturday, things could only get better with the weather. As we woke up on Sunday morning, we were smiling for two reasons. Firstly, the sun was out and the mud was slowly beginning to dry out and secondly, and most importantly. it was M’s 5th birthday! We attended his brilliant pool party a couple of weeks ago, but it was really nice to be able to share his actual birthday with him.

We had quite a busy day planned and, after treating ourselves to a lovely breakfast of sausage sandwich, some ‘proper toast’, a crepe with honey for the boy and a cup of tea, we headed to the Big Top to see the rather brilliant Andy and The Odd Socks.

Camp Bestival – Day 2 (Soggy Saturday)

Camp Bestival – the first 24 hours!

For the past few years, our friends over at My Two Mums have been going to Camp Bestival.¬†We have seen their amazing photos and read their blog posts wishing that we would get the opportunity to experience this for ourselves one day. Luckily, we were given the chance to be ‘Official Camp Bestival Bloggers’ this year and I have to say, we had the time of our lives!

We arrived on Thursday (straight off a ferry from the Isle of Wight – more about that in a future blog post) to bright sunshine. The walk from the car park to the pitch was quite a trek, mainly due to the fact that we were pitching as close as possible to the festival entrance, but this was definitely the best plan as it meant a short walk each morning into the action. Thanks K and C for saving us a place!
