    I love the pictures on these – they remind me of the kind of pics we have! Family holiday memories are so special, aren't they? I have lots from my childhood, and hopefully my kids are building some up now too.

      I went camping on my own with church a couple of times, and then with my husband right up until we had children. Then we took our first son and he hated it so much we've never been since…that was 1988 🙁

    That part about walking the tent across the field made me laugh out loud 🙂 I can just imagine it! We used to camp a lot when i was younger as well and we are actually booked in to take the girls camping for the first time ever this summer 🙂

      Me and my cousin were in fits of giggles while walking the tent, so it was a giggling walking tent. I do wish I could have seen it from the outside! Enjoy your camping holiday x

    This was so lovely and nostalgic and very funny. Reading about camping trips always is 🙂 We never went on any but I do love to hear about them, such a British thing in a muddy field.

    Oh gosh Anne what wonderful memories and great photos too (you should link up with What's The Story?). There's something about camping isn't there. We did it for years so I'm sure there are similar photos floating around somewhere. Fabulous post. Hope you're good lovely x

    Oh these photos are gorgeous – i wonder if our photos will look like this in 30 years time? With that quality of photos from a time now passed. What happy memories, even of the mud!!

    We never did camping, but the pictures of that era remind me of our summer holidays. My great uncle used to manage a hotel and campsite. He would do us a deal on the cost, so we stayed in the hotel. All around the hotel looked like that though.

    The image of a tent being walked along the field is cracking me up! What a wonderful trip down memory lane! The only camping I ever did was with the Girl Guides – I love home comforts too much to rough it these days, lol, but I wouldn't mind a bit of glamping!! Thanks for sharing with #StepBackInTime! x
