Tylda isn’t quite waterproof straight away. Apparently to avoid getting slightly damp on your first camping trip (what a disappointment that would be!) you have to make sure she gets a good soaking a few times.
So we pitched her in the garden, checked the weather forcast…
No rain forcast. For a week. In Cornwall.
I mean, I thought I could rely on our temperate climate! Perhaps if we had done it on a Bank Holiday we could have the guaranteed dampness.
So we thought we would give the rain a bit of a helping hand and got the hose out and give Tylda a sprinkling. I thought watching the water running off the canvas was mesmerising, and I just had to share here.
