Camp Bestival Planning

Mojitos for tomorrow night and in an ideal world all we would need is three things: Tequila, salt and limes, we wouldn't need anything else to get us through the weekend as no food would be required or remembered. However, we have children so that's not going to happen *sighs wistfully*.

Neilson Lemnos - tennis, mountain biking and family photo

The girls played rugby, tennis and did a few Zumba sessions, one of which was on the gulet cruise with TAG. This was apparently hilarious but there are no photos. Surf squad went off on mountain bikes to Manos beach for ice creams and doughnut rides.

Neilson Lemnos, childcare, clubs and photos

How do we know what they've done every day? Do they tell us? No. So how do we find out? Clare Edmead Photography, that's how.

Neilson Lemnos - food, drink and waterfront

have to say that the waterfront staff have the patience of saints. I've spent 22 years trying to windsurf, I got the hang of it two years ago here and got going in Kos last year so the lovely Mike, head of waterfront, put me in 'improvers' windsurf class with long suffering instructor Max.

Neilson Lemnos - arrival

Our rooms are lovely, garden rooms on the ground floor with hammocks on the patio, fab idea Neilson. Sun tan lotion and cossies on straight into the massive pool, I was in first...children are wusses! I was also first in the sea!

Albufeira - holidays for 18 year olds

She got home today, the two of them had a fantastic time but couldn't believe the behaviour of some parents in the hotel (swearing at small children and each other in front of small children) and some of the other people they met.

Neilson Lemnos - 3 days to go

This will be my fourth time in Lemnos, I know I should be a bit more adventurous with my Greek islands but the truth is I love the Neilson beach club concept and Lemnos has the best windsurfing winds for me - pathetically awful, just about able to get up and it's taken me 20 years to get my 'Start Windsurfing' RYA certification.
