jubilee camping, on my way to the Ashram….

Danae and Louisa and their families decide to spend half-term and the Queen’s Jubilee camping at Batcombe Vale in Somerset. We join them and stay at the B&B owned  by Gary and Barbara who run run the campsite.

The week is meant to celebrate the Queen’s reign; it is also a celebration of another type of rain. But nothing daunted, we enjoy ourselves! The first wet day we spend at Wookey Hole, which has become more and more commercialise sand Disneyfied and less and sless to do with speleology, the river Axe and paper printing. But the kids like the dinosaurs and Cottle’s circus exhibits. And if they’re happy…..

The next day is for adults and we spend it at Glastonbury. In many ways this is just a grown-up version of Wookey Hole – commercialised and Disneyfied but for an older clientele. We all climb the Tor and witness spectacular views through the thunderstorm and bitter rain.
