    Today, we made the most of the sunshine and gentle breeze...washing day! Does anyone else use their awning for drying their washing?

    Looks like you got yourself a very senic spot there.
    Was access as difficult as it appears ?

    It looks worse that it is. Believe it or not but this rocky hill is in the middle of a sports ground.

    Yes, and for drying my towel in the morning whenever possible. In fact it gets used more for that than it does acting as a sun canopy :(

    Yes as well as other methods. See our laundry page on how we tackle the laundry issue.

    Photo taken in Romania. No washing machine. All hand washed. It was a hot day and we celebrated with a swim in the pool at the campsite.

    I find it far more convenient to use a laundry at a supermarket and most town have one too, washed and dry, sorted.

    Yes but not as romantic and satisfying.

    I will mate.
    I must add that I enjoy watching my barefoot wife "treading" the washing in a large "Trug".
    THAT's the romantic bit.
    My contribution is putting up a washing line somewhere.
    But, as she is a happy soul, its win win...
    Mitch. ;)

    Tom Cruise is VERY short (like me) and probably wouldn't be able to see over the rim of the "Trug" when "treading" the washing.
    Let me guess, he has a shower in his clothes ???
