Meyrick Park

Can you believe that this photo was taken only 5 minutes from Bournemouth town centre in Meyrick Park.It was another lovely Spring day so I took the chance to walk into town,about 4 miles each way,with my son Joshua so we had a chance for a good chat. Joshua is now 8 years old where does the time go?

Clamcleat Aluminium Y tent pegs

I have just purchased twelve Clamcleat Aluminium Y tent pegs they arrived the next working day after ordering and cost just £3.49 per pack of six, so with postage at £1.73 I now have twelve very strong pegs for £8.71 That's fantastic value!
Info from Cleats website:-
A really strong aluminium tent peg. The Y section gives great rigidity and strength, while keeping the weight down to just 16gm. The bright blue anodising and red lanyard gives high visibility in grass. Ideal for hard ground. We did a lot of testing before choosing this design, to make sure we have the best combination of weight, strength, stiffness, visibility and good value. This are one of the strongest tent pegs you can buy.
