Cali has been to Dulverton

The forecast for the weekend was good so we decided to return to Exmoor House Caravan Club Site at Dulverton - this was the first site we had been to with Cali last year.  The site was full for the weekend and as we were the last to arrive we got the last pitch which was next to one of the toilet blocks.  It wasn't the best pitch on the site, but it was in a lovely sunny spot so we were happy.  After setting up on site we popped to the Bridge Inn for a couple of drinks and then had a lazy Friday evening.  On Saturday we decided to do a circular ten mile walk from the site, along the River Barle, through the woods and across Anstey Common.

It was a really hot day, probably too hot for the time of year, and we were both pleased to get back to Cali late afternoon.  We wound out the awning for some shade whilst sitting out to have a few beers!

But, how soon the weather changes. Shortly after this photo was taken I went for a shower before we had our meal only to step outside the toilet block to torrential rain (at least I didn't have far to walk!) and a clap of thunder.  The rain stopped almost as quickly as it started and after a dry night we had another lovely sunny morning on Sunday.  Perfect for sitting out with a coffee and the Sunday papers.

This is one of our favourite weekend sites as it's only about an hour from home and there are plenty of walks from the site.
