Camping at the White Horse

Our friends found a great spot for camping at the White Horse camp ground. It is fantastically situated right under the white horse carved into the hillside near Weymouth and a really lovely site with lovely facilities and lots of space.
 It was good to set up our tent with the new porch area!
There were 6 families in tents and we had a central gazebo area that the camp site let us move their wooden table under to use.
We set up the camp fire and chilled out!

 It was great that the freedom the campsite gave the children and they were soon off wanting to explore! Here they are on the first day making it to the gate - by the 3rd day the specs were seen through binoculars on the horse itself!!! We didn't expect them to go that far!!!
After a bit of campfire singing it was time for the first night's sleep. Our little monsters were very sweet snuggled up together!
On Day 2 we took a trip into Weymouth. The day started rather misty and rainy but as soon as we hit the beach it began to clear. I had a lovely swim in the sea and the children were just happy for hours digging and splashing!

We could even see the white horse from the beach on the far side of the bay!

A perfect beach lunch of fish and chips were enjoyed...
We had a nice walk back along the port and then found a fish shop where Dan bought some Gurnard to cook up later.

 It tasted great!
 It was a really lovely day and so nice to see the children so happy and playing so well together.
The last day we all made it up to the White Horse. It was a great view from the top!







 Then later we visited Portland Bill - the children loved playing on the rocks!





 A really lovely holiday with some fantastic friends! Bring on the next camping trip!
