New Year in Padstow 2013 - New Years Eve

After yet another wild and very windy night we finally woke up to almost clear blue skies so decided to walk from the site to the pretty bay at Trevone, approximately 2.5 miles from the site.  We chose to walk down the small country lanes, that were very wet and flooded in some places but it was well worth it for the beach and wonderful waves alone!

We had pre-booked our taxi for that evening, New Years Eve, and spent the evening in Padstow, enjoying a meal in the Harbour Inn and a few drinks and a sing-song in The Old Custom House, before heading back to the campsite to see in 2014 with our friends.  A great time was had by all.

We decided to head home in the afternoon on New Years Day, instead of early the next morning, so that we could catch up on some sleep as there seemed to be no end to the constant battering we were taking on site. 

We had been incredibly lucky with the weather during the daytime but nightime was a different matter.  As much as we love our time away in our camper it was nice to be home in bed and to be able to catch up on some missed sleep!  We have also pre-booked a New Year break for 2014, on Exmoor this time, so we look forward to doing it all over again!!

Our next booked trip for 2014 is Easter, which is very late this year, so I have no doubts we'll be heading away long before then!
