On the Wednesday morning we read the weather forecast for the Thursday and were amazed to see they were forecasting one of the hottest days of the year in the UK, and decided to move from Sussex and base ourselves at a recommended campsite near Weymouth, so it was another hours Camper Van Tetris, fill the tank and we were on our way. Once we had got past Southampton on the M27 we hit the b-roads, and four hours later we pulled into the campsite, paid our admission fee and sought a pitch with the advertised sea view, after pootling around the campsite for ten minutes, it dawned on me i couldnt get a sea view, as i had pulled into the wrong campsite !!!!!! Asked for a refund which was declined so not wanting to waste our camping fee we settled in and enjoyed our uninterupted view of the shower block.
Still we made the most of a bad job and found the Osmington ‘Smugglers Inn’ and treated ourselves to a meal out and a few dark ales, before a stroll back to the bus for a good nights sleep.
Thursday we decided to drive to the stunning Lulworth cove which luck would have it was a stones throw from our campsite, never been to Lulworth since i was a wee boy and to cut a short story short it is absolutely stunning and worth a visit, highly recommended! As we strolled down from the car park i caught the first glimpse of the cove.
And we were not dissapointed so settled in for a days sunbathing, i wanted to do some fishing, but was simply too busy to start swinging my line full of hooks around on the beach, the water was cool and the weather was stunning!
In the end i brought a bag of fresh Lulworth mackerel for the BBQ and after a day in the sun was time to go back to our campsite. Great evening enjoying the view of the shower/toilet block, but had a great meal and lots of laughs!
