This was the camp site? for caravans etc,had to leave the bike here as the field was too waterlogged.

Lonely camper - there was no indication where the 'camping bit' was but this looked good.

Berehaven Golf Course. The club house was completely empty, not a soul.
A sign instructed you to place the camping fee in a box!
About 1 or 2 mobile home owners were equally baffled?

I was very glad to stop, everything was now wet as it had been raining all day.
It was so nice to get out of the rain, even though the tent was soden on the inside.
