Family Camping

We spent a fantastic few days and nights camping in Bright this past weekend.  Ruby, Poppy & Charlie developed chicken pox on day 1 but we didn’t let it get in the way (although poor Pops was run down with it for an afternoon).  Our campsite was alongside a river giving the kids endless entertainment from swimming, fishing, dam building and stone skimming.  It was also the perfect place to cool off from the sun. Ella & Charlie loved having the freedom to ride their bikes around the site and visit the playground when they wanted…..something they can’t do in St Kilda due to traffic & trams!

In all there were 9 adults and 13 kids, brave you may think but for us it worked well.  Everything we had forgotten was covered by someone else and vice versa.  Between us we had a great set up!

My only complaint….the torrential rain we had to pack up in but I guess that makes for a hardy camper!!
