At last some good weather in June meant we managed to get away for a few weekends to the caravan.
Last season at the caravan we tended to just relax and potter about, especially as it was very hot. This season we are aiming to explore the Yorkshire Dales and visit more places.
We are sited within walking distance of a train station and, using our family railcard for discounted fares, we have found that exploring by train is more enjoyable than driving to places.
Over the last few weeks we have visited Skipton, Settle, and last weekend we went to Dent village Music and Beer festival which was family-friendly and free to enter. We (I) had a great time trying out the various ales. One of my favourites was called Dark Moose, whilst Mrs. FU enjoyed Kamikaze. We just managed to catch the last train back to the caravan or we may have been sleeping rough, as well as feeling rough the day after!
FU#2 has now finished her GCSEs and is preparing for her prom night this week. Future plans regarding A levels are still up in the air with alternative paths being considered.
