Where have the goats been?

That’s a good question… and sadly the answer isn’t camping! We both enjoyed holidays recently and both enjoyed walks – one in the Braid Hills outside Edinburgh and the other in La Caleta National Park, Tenerife. We’ll leave you to guess which picture is which!!

One of us even came across some other goats on our travels!!

These ones were outside the Johnsons Mill in Hawick. They are Cashmere goats – the long hair on their chests is what gets spun into yarn to make jumpers. We were treated to a tour of the knitting factory and it was fascinating to see the machines and people who turn the wool into (very expensive!) jumpers, scarves and socks!

The camping season hopefully starts again soon – we started planning last night! A lot of campsites seem to not be opening until Easter or even May, but hopefully we can have a trip in March. Any recommendations of all year round campsites welcome (use the comments or contact us).
