We're determined to make the most of this year's trips in Tribby - even if it means getting wet or being frozen solid! The Early May bank holiday was no exception, I hope our next trip away is warmer.
We'd booked Saturday to Tuesday at the Caravan & Camping Club's Canterbury site - I used one of my valuable 3 days annual leave to enjoy Shaun's first long weekend off since we got back from Australia. We've come to the conclusion that using the club sites is less of a lottery as far as facilities are concerned. I know we have our own but being able to have a proper shower and hair wash at some point over the weekend is much more preferable to the dribble of water we can use in Tribby's little shower and also it's warmer! It also means that we can wash up and not fill our waste tank and have the hassle of driving off site to empty every couple of days.
Canterbury Club Site is about a mile and a bit outside the city centre. We were given a pitch in "The Wood". The site is quite large (200 units) and is divided into sections. The Wood was lovely and quiet - lots of enormous rabbits and a squirrel for Archie to stalk and bark at all day. There was only us a tent and a trailer tent - lots of space, especially when the tent left on Sunday! We weren't too far away from the facilities either.

On Sunday we ventured over the road and found our way along a series of footpaths to a network of cycle/shared paths - it probably had a name but I have no memory! It was very pleasant not having to walk near the main road.

Next stop - Graffham on 3rd June !
