Unfortunately, with the tent not having a fully integrated groundsheet, the rain had also penetrated underneath the bottom where it didn't touch the ground and there was a puddle on the groundsheet inside; it was soon mopped up with a towel though and with that job done I took the dogs for their first walk of the day. Across the lane from the site entrance were three fields - the first one was used for visitors' parking but I could see some piglets in the next one so I went across to take a look - there were three with what I assumed to be mother pig. Further along the field was a small horse box which seemed to be the living quarters of a goat and in the field beyond was a small group of alpacas and a herd of sheep, but the piglets were my favourites and I fell in love with the smallest one.
After a leisurely breakfast, during which the sun kept trying to break through the clouds, we started the packing up process and everything was in the van by 11.15am. With one final photo of the site I drove out of the gates for the last time and headed down the road to Pensarn where a dog walk along the beach was followed by an early lunch in the Pantri Bach cafe nearby.
It was an easy drive home with no delays and the further north we got the more the day brightened up until we arrived home in glorious sunshine at 3.15pm. It had been a good weekend, made even better by the lovely weather we'd had and also meeting up with Eileen and Annie again, and though I knew the sea air wouldn't have made my son's ankle any better the change of scenery had been good for him in other ways so I was more than happy with that.
