Camping in Sussex - Bodiam

Have been Camping this week in Bodiam which is in East Sussex :)
There were 7 of us in the end so me + Mika drove down.
Down the M1, then queue's on the M25 as usual but we chucked on Aretha Franklin RESPECT and Valerie by Amy Winehouse and sang to all the other traffic so that kept us, and most of the other cars, amused for hours :P

Got the the campsite about half 8 and chucked up my 2 pop up tents which we kept everything in and then we all put up Cookie's 10 man tent that we slept in.
Drove to Sainsbury's to get munch (chicken + noodles!) and went back to cook it. Attempted to make a fire with charcoal which was a bit of a fail but me + George went to the woods to get a load of sticks and then there was a wood pile on the way to the loo's which we 'borrowed' some logs from so we weren't cold!

Next morning we had sausages + beans in a tin for breakfast and went to Hastings, played in the sea which was really cold...

then on to Eastbourne and then up to Beachy Head.

Stopped in Eastbourne again to go and play with Sketts ball on the beach.
Went to Te$co on the way back to get a disposable BBQ + a load more food + booze. Had chicken + mini jacket potatoes for tea, cooked on the BBQ + fire, and we made corn on the cob.
Actually had fire lighting gel, charcoal, proper coal + bags of logs tonight so had a big fire that lasted aages :))

Next morning we cooked toast on the fire that was still going from the night before and made a load of boiled eggs. Sat around the fire for ages, burnt things - camping chair, football, milk - packed up and left just before 3. Got stuck in loads of queues on the M25 'cos Mika took us the wrong way round, stopped at a couple of services 'cos Nikki needed a wee, dropped everyone back and eventually got home for about 8!
