What a nice campsite. Now, where shall I pitch up? This spot’s perfect. A treat for the eyne. It’s beside the embouchure so I’ll be able to catch fish and paddle during the day and the sound of rippling water will send me to sleep at night!
Now, let’s get the equipage. Firstly my little tent. Apparently, it’s easy to put up. Just a few poles, some ropes and some cloth. Erelong, my home for the next few days will be ready for occupation! Eftsoon, I’ll be sitting by my campfire cooking … something. Not sure what just yet. I might go foraging. We’ll see.
Anyway, here goes. That fits there and this goes here. So far so good. Bang some pegs in...ouch, my thumb … and there it is!
Egad, what’s that? I’m being stared at by a wild beast. They didn’t say anything about them on Tripadvisor! Shoo!
Oh no, it’s beginning to rain. I’ll have to crawl inside. Blimey, it’s a bit smaller than I expected. Never mind. Oo-err, the wind’s getting up, please don’t blow me away!
I’ve had enow. This was not a good idea. I need to excogitate and I’m esurient too so I’ll walk up to The Good Intent pub for some grub and have a think.
“Fish and chips, and a pint of your finest frothing ale landlord please, and do you perchance offer bed and breakfast accommodation?”
