Tent-warming Party

We dearly loved our little Coleman Ridgeline, but it took a lot of strain in the North York Moors' winds at the end of last summer. And frankly, it just wasn't going to cut it in the Outer Hebrides for our propsed wild camping trip in August.

So we blew my invigilation money (one step around the Great Hall = 1 cm2 of tent) on an Outwell Colorado 5. We put it up in the back garden this morning (erected with great ease: we are already won over by it's slick Danish design and smashing Mocha Chocalata ya ya colour-scheme). We had friends around this afternoon for a tent-warming shindig and the elderflower and cava cocktails went down particularly well in the glorious heat. Hopefully the first of many happy little times...
