I had planned to plan this little trip properly. But,Saturday afternoon found me frantically squeezing three sleeping bags and three pads into my new rucksack – The Mum would carry her own. At half the size and a third of the weight of Behemoth, the gear fitted into my new pack; just!
Once more, Behemoth would stay in the loft.
After a burger and chips for tea, we arrived at Belstone, the scene of last year’s outing with the Lad.
Notice the lightsabre; an essential item for the microadventurer!
As we climbed up towards the top of the Tor,the wind picked up and the skies darkened; rain looked imminent.
With rain forecast, we had brought along the tents, so while the adults set up camp, the children played until it was time for bed as the first of the rain clouds passed over.
We soon fell asleep to the quiet pitter-patter of the rain.
