Both the car and the view look great, Mel. I expect your car attracted a lot of attention and deservedly so.
I've actually stayed at that camping site, some years ago though.

Down here we call that a 'full english' . Sausages, bacon, eggs (poached ,scrambled or fried ),hash browns, tomato and toast.....also known as a gut buster ,and is as close to a hangover cure as you can get (let the debate begin :boxing: ).
I haven't been camping for yonks , not since I got the hand brake.....I can't understand why bugs ,grass, cow shit and drunk boys don't appeal to her,.....fuckit ,I even caught her a eel once.......still not happy. I think what really did it was the time she fell asleep on a grassy bank and we quietly ( I'm surprised all the sniggering didn't wake her ) moved the whole camp a couple of hundred yards down stream.
Good times

Wow Mel. What a stunning Capri you have fella and what a beautiful part of the world too. Driving around there must be amazing. Glad you got back OK. A mazing how much stuff you can actually get into the back of a Capri!!
Great pictures by the way. Nice one mate :)

Never camped, apart from a tent in a mates garden around 1982 :lol:

You picked a good weekend for it Mel :cheers: We were at Paignton Green on Sunday under a Gazebo :D

As Nick said, you can get quite alot in a Capri without the parcel shelf, but with the shelf in height is an issue :?

Car looks great :cool:

Supposin' you actually catch something :xd: ha ha , if I was planning the fishin trip of a lifetime .....I wouldn't be goin to Blighty :lol: ......probly stay here......and spend the air fare on bait ( the fish here love Beck's, Benedictine ,and salami.......they don't like women, specially impatient ones ) :lol:

My parcel shelf was a bit damaged where the rear screen leaked on it(probly for years before I got it ) and I have a friend who made me one out of MDF (he's a cabinet maker ) . He has a machine that sprays that fluff stuff for the finish .......looks factory
