One of my favourite places and with a site for me to stay next to the marina and coach park it could scarcely be easier.

Beach Body Perfect

inpursuitofadream.com

There’s a haze on the horizon, the sunshine is beating down and the waves are crashing in today.

As we near the end of our winter break we’d promised ourselves a bit of down time. A bit of beach time.

With two sunbeds and a parasol priced at 12€ for the day, we choose our little bit of sand carefully. It’s almost like arriving at a car park and finding you’re the first there. Which spot to choose. The beach sprawls for what seems like miles. The Boss can’t decide on which grains of sand are going to be graced with his presence. So, I choose.

The waves are rough today, paddle boarders and surf boards are out riding the waves. I muse for a moment, if we go for a paddle, I want to be safe. Carefully combed sand near the life guard station seems like a safe bet.

Brighton CAMC site – open all year.

Spent some time this week at one of my favourite sites. With the Brighton Marina a leisurely 15 minute stroll away and Uber on hand for a trip into Brighton itself, it is hard not to like.

The wonderful weather accompanied me from Crystal Palace and I was able to see the two Airstreams which now join some of the other alternative accommodation available on site – with more types to follow on areas of the site not suited to caravans and motorhome pitches.

There’s a lot of talk at this time of year about winter storage and how to prepare for winter and come through it unscathed without any frozen pipes or frost damaged equipment. It’s an important subject if you are to avoid an unpleasant and unwelcome bill next spring when you start touring again. For my part, my motorhome is in use throughout the winter so I just keep it ticking over on the days it and I are languishing at home. It is on permanent Red Alert to depart at a moment’s notice.
