Day 531 camping in the woods with the sound of the birds 🦢 🦅 and the river flowing 🏞

This is wild camping.

All I can hear is birds tweeting…. Goats bleeting 🐐…. Owls 🦉 doing whatever owls do, an occasional cow mooing 🐮 and of course the river flowing.

The view from the back of the van!

It’s so peaceful.

Warren rescued this wee guy from the back of his truck!

Now this is not for everyone. It’s basically a woodland that cows wander around… but other than our mate Warren there is no one else around. Doug and Steve are arriving this afternoon. sorry I forgot of course Calaidh is here… barking at sticks occasionally 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Warren took as for a drive round Nash Oakland in his truck as it’s 4X4. It’s a huge expanse where people can camp for a tenner a night and not see another soul the whole time. First we had to get through the river.

I said to Warren that I’d take loads of photos of him driving through…. He already has loads! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

Then we went for a drive into Presteigne for supplies.

This is a lovely wee village and the guy in the shop was super friendly asking us where we were from and how long we were here.

Back at camp to chill and relax.

Doug and Steve arrived early to mid afternoon and started cooking dinner.

Doug and I went for a paddle in the river…. Oh my actual god. It is freeeeeezing and so painful but very, very refreshing!

So the guys are used to meeting up together and make poetjie (poy-kee) for dinner which is a like a stew which loads of ingredients and spices.

Tonight’s was Chicken Masala. Here is the prep!

Steve stirring the onions, garlic 🧄 and butter.

Almost ready to eat. We had it with naan bread and it was amazing!

Just throw the ball!

So yeah no signal again…. So can’t post this….. It’s lovely to not be checking your phone every 5 minutes.

Stay safe everyone 🐐🦉🐮
