Despite the entire summer being taken up with hospital visiting, we did manage to have a couple of respites. We had a week in Tenby in June which was kindly covered by my brother coming to stay in Cardiff that week so that Mum still had visits. We were also able to dash down to Hayling Island for a few days at the end of September to attend my cousin's wedding.
We walked all day on our first day there, exploring the beach and nature reserve at the farthest point of the island. We camped on the island with our fabulous combi camp trailer tent. It is such a fantastic tent – so comfortable, and really roomy with the awning erected. We took our frontier stove which kept us snug, and—as we had electric hook up—I also took my electric blanket!
