Carry on Camping

Friday, September 17, 2010

On the 17 September 2010 I, Graeme McCartney, Brian Smith and Gary Harwood all went camping for the first time. We went to a campsite near a little village called Flyingthorpe which is approximately 6 miles from Whitby.  None of us had put a tent up before but we all had fun doing it and once we unpacked everyhting we decided to expolre the area. We first went to Goathlands which is where the TV series Heartbeat is filmed. Everyone bought souvenirs anad also got their photos taking standing in front of the police car that was used in the programme.

After Goathlands we headed to Whitby where we had a nice stroll around the harbour which is stunning. We decided to have a meal and went to a Chinese restaurant where we had a fantastic time.

After Whitby we went back to the campsite and relaxed a bit before we walked to Robin Hoods Bay where the views are spectacular. Once back at the campsite we then prepared our BBQ even though it was 9.30 at night. The only problem we had was there was a power cut and watching John trying to BBQ the meat in darkness was quite funny but Brian came prepared with a torch which was very useful. Eventually the power came on and normality was restored. It was a little cold but we had an electric hook up and heaters which made it very cosy. We stayed up till midnight talking and planning our next camping trip. It was our first camping experience and we all got on well and now i count Brian and Gary as my friends. We all had a brilliant time and would recommend it to anyone.

I have asked if we could set up a camping club and with the help of my support workers that has been made possible and i cant wait till next year.
