Littlehampton Caravan Club Site

Another sunny and mild morning greets us, can this really be October in England?

By 10:30 we are packed up and on our way, traffic is light, sun is shinning, life is good.

We arrive in Littlehampton just after 13:00. When we checked the Caravan Club website, it showed this site as fully booked for the coming weekend, with spaces only for tonight (Thursday). Even the Warden at the site is unable to book us in for the seven days we want because “the computer says it is fully booked”. What is the point in having such a useless system? Anyway, he tells us to just choose a spot and we all agree to ignore the computer system.

We have a cycle ride into Littlehampton, it is a typical English seaside resort, a bit faded grandeur. The beach is not nearly as good as South Shields, but there is no North Eat wind blowing off the sea!, so we sit and drink coffee on the “millennium riverside walk”, it is even warm enough to have ice cream, which I do of course.

Looks as if there will be plenty of things to keep us occupied here for a week, fingers crossed the weather holds up.
