Two Days at Akebar Park

Dot was off work and we were not out this Saturday, so we looked for somewhere not too far away to go in the van. Akebar Park was a place we used quite a lot when the kids where little but have not been much at all recently, I think we went with the twins ones, a long time ago though. Anyway we booked two nights there.

17th September to the 19th

We managed to book in for the Saturday and Sunday, we had to be back home on Monday for Dots Dads 92nd birthday. We arrived at the site, booked in and found a site, it was quite busy with a lot of tents but not too bad. The tents I am on about are bigger than the van, even bigger that any of the caravans but thankfully most of them were quiet at night.

If you do not have a car there is plenty of walking to do there but we went just there for a rest. We just sat around most of the afternoon, reading and watching TV. Later we went for a walk up to the bar, only it was too full, so we just wandered back to the van.


We had plenty of beer back there anyway. So we just spent the night down on the site by the van sat in the sun, then moved in to watch TV.

Another quiet morning sat in the sun reading, very relaxing. Eventually we wandered up to the bar again and this time it was quite empty. As was most of the site, many people had moved off this morning, most to be back at work tomorrow and kids back to school. We had a couple of beers sat outside in the sun before wandering back down to the van.

Back there we had our tea before we watched the F1GP repeat on CH4 and the Paralympics before bed, the satellite wasn't working, something to look into later.

As I said it was a very quiet relaxing two days away and I enjoyed it immensely.
