Wild Camping on the Teign Estuary

Down to the Teign Estuary on a lovely summer night for some ‘wild camping’.

Listening to Mahlers ‘Das Lied von der Erde’ (Song of the Earth)

Listening to owls hoot hooting.

Listening to the trains skattle rattle din on the far side.

Listening to the curlews melancholy moon music.

Listening to the air mattress slowly deflating, reflating.

Listening to that fried bacon sizzle.

We didn’t sleep much.

There’d been too much magic going on out there to waste it on sleep.

So that was Wild Camping Part 1.

Part 2 will be in a wildly wilder place: Dartmoor.

Successful completion of which will qualify Miss Brown for her Level 2 Wild Camping Certificate! (accredited by the Nizzwaz Institute of Outlandish Pursuits)
