    We are staying at Haycraft CC site in Swanage and the wind is getting on my nerves! Spent late afternoon yesterday tying down another motorhomers awning as it was threatening to fly away (owner was away from site). One of the legs of awning had snapped and it was one hell of a job to hang on as the wind got up and under the awning. Pretty quickly a few other campers turned up to lend a hand and we managed to half dismantle awning and tie it down securely.
    Owner turned up an hour or so later and spent another couple of hours trying to fix awning - ably assisted by another couple. It was a pole joint that had snapped but he carried spares - just as well!

    Nice to see people get stuck in and lend a hand. ☺

    Just got back from lake bala in wales

    we were being blown around on the camp site a bit & sat morning the noise from the wind was loud (ive heard this before up there in a tent :Wink:) so I went to the shore line to get pictures of the waves on the lake.
    the wind accross the lake was so strong I had to get down on my knees to stop myself being blown over.

    I decided I wasnt paddling as I diddnt have my long boat :Rofl1:
