Remembering the summer…Wigwamming in Cornwall

In the middle of June, we went on a long weekend break to Ruthern Valley Holidays in Cornwall. It was a self-catering holiday, but instead of a caravan or a tent, we stayed in a camping wigwam! I had been inspired by the wigwamming trip that a number of my Click Collective friends had been on earlier in the year in Northumberland, so I was eager to give it a go!

I took far too much camera gear: 3 cameras – Nikon D7000, Olympus E-PL1 and a film camera lent to me by a Flickr friend,  a Nikon FE2, plus various lenses, so my resulting pictures are a little varied in their style!

We had a brilliant time, very relaxing and so lovely to be in the countryside. The weather wasn’t wonderful…it rained the first night…but we managed to stay relatively dry. I’d certainly do wigwamming again 🙂
