Day 3 – The day we discover that we can have fun after all
We didn’t wake up after our late night until 10am when a vey nice man fom the campsite came to knock on Bevs camper to tell her that we should not have parked where we had and that we needed to pay. Coffee, coco pops and toast with homemade jam signalled the beginning of the holiday proper and we decided that we just needed to take it easy, have a nice short(ish) day and find a nice campsite – we set off at 1pm in much better spirits and drove down through beautiful scenery over viaducts looking at mountains of trees and blue skies. By 5pm we had taken pot luck and left the motorway to find a campsite we had spotted on the map, near Frankfurt. We arrived (after driving around a field of allotments which we mistakenly thought was the site) at a fantastic site complete with electric points, a lake, sandy beach and hot showers and clean toilets – bliss. We had tea, the kids went swimming in the lake and we got a great nights sleep.
