Kendal

 29th to 31st July 2022

Our love affair with the Kendal CAMC site continues...our fourth visit this year.  We do like this site but it is mostly because we can't find availability anywhere else.  It's a bit of a mystery why this site is so unbusy during the school holidays, but we're not complaining.

Friday

We arrived shortly after 1pm and were congratulated by the warden for being the first arrival of the day.  Lots of available pitches, including dream pitch no. 21.  D told the warden that we would aim for that pitch and he gave us the key straight away.  We couldn't have asked for a better start start to the trip.



A frequent visitor to our pitch, it was almost eating out of our hands.

Just phone pics this trip because our camera has died and we haven't had a chance to get a new one yet.  Oh, and the rubbish weather...but more of that later.

The weather was great on the Friday, so much so that we dared to think this might be a 10/10 trip.  As is customary when we come here we went for a stroll to the nearby farm shop and then to the Strickland Arms, before a very successful barbecue in the evening.


A lot of sausages but some were for breakfast the following day

Saturday

What a difference a day makes.  It was raining when we woke up and it didn't stop all day!  Thank God for the canopy which meant we could sit outside and weren't cooped up inside the caravan all day.

It eased off a bit in the afternoon so we donned our waterproof coats and went for a stroll along the river, but that was it.




Afterwards we managed to make it to the bus stop between downpours and got a bus into Kendal where we had dinner in Pedro's.  Excellent food and we particularly liked their mago and passion fruit sangria.  Then a few drinks in the Fell bar and the Bowness Bay Brewery tap, then a bus back to the site.

Sunday

We awoke to the sound of rain and thought we would get soaked packing everything away, but it stopped just in time.  Blue sky everywhere as soon as we hit the M6.

Coming soon...

A break of a couple of weeks for a short film festival in Southport and then getting the car serviced.  We hope to go somewhere mid August and at the moment it looks like it might be Kendal again!
