Finally getting around to writing up our third and final day of Camp Bestival. Day three was by far our busiest day of them all. We woke up to the sun beaming down on us FINALLY so we needed to get out and make the most of it.
As you can imagine after all that heavy rain and thousands of people walking over it, the grass had turned into a thick muddy slush. Pushing a push chair through it was not the easiest task.
The first thing we did was head to the Dingly Dell woods, I hadn’t managed to get down their last year but had heard how amazing it was for the kids. Mud or no mud we weren’t missing out.
Here’s Lottie and I as we took a walk down Lizzy’s Way. I was pleasantly surprised at just how much there was for the children to do. Lots of different activity stops on the way with a play area and then a little farm. The girls got to hold some baby chicks – they were so excited!
We spent a good couple of hours down in the Dingly Dell before heading to the main stage to watch some more acts and have lunch. It is such a different atmosphere when the sun is shining, everyones happier and kids run free; my girls were happy to be just sitting on the field drinking a slush puppy.
We went down to the Bollywood tent later on in the afternoon so I could have a proper catch up with one of my blogging besties Caro and her family. Bollywood was one of my favourite parts last year – the Big Fish Little Fish raves they host are so much fun! Parents are instantly transported back to their youths and the kids love to see all the parents going for it and dancing their socks off.
Next stop (I told you it was a busy day) was Kiddifornia, a place where the roles were reversed and kids were in charge of the adults. What actually happened was I sat with a gin whilst the kids played in the sand and relaxed in hammocks.
We then planned to watch Louisa Johnson on the main stage; there was a change in schedule and she was moved to big top which was so frustrating as it was so crammed and we were all seriously squashed. We watched her first couple of songs before the girls were just too stressed out by it all.
It was then we headed back to our tent, the plan was to chill for an hour or two before going out to see the fireworks. Even the best thought out plans don’t always pan out and we all ended up falling asleep, only to wake as the fireworks started going off. Lottie and I watched them from the tent door while everyone else was to exhausted to move, I am a little gutted we missed them but we still had an awesome day.
Thanks for an awesome weekend Camp Bestival!
