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!!
