It is extremely windy today, we took a route here that avoided dual carriageways and exposed motorways even then we were thrown around by the wind. We had pre-booked a hardstanding pitch with electric hook up and where we are is fine except we are underneath several mature oak trees and we have been peppered with acorns since we pitched up.
Alison and Peter arrived within 5 minutes of ourselves and took the pitch next to us fortunately for them they aren’t under the oak trees.
This site is huge and there are a large number of tents, caravans and motorhomes pitched up but because of its huge size no one is on top of anyone else. The site is bordered by the River Severn and is a 15 minute walk from the centre of Shrewsbury. We have chilled out since arrival and apart from taking Layla for two long walks around the site we have done very little else.
Since we got back from our recent trip to Wales where we had problems, we have purchased two new leisure batteries which I have wired up in parallel and all being well this will give us increased capacity to stay at places without the need for electric hookup.
During the course of the evening the wind has died down and all being well we will have a quiet night.
