We have been living out of our caravan for the last 2 months while our damage caused by the water leak has been sorted out. Fortunately we have an upstairs at home so we could still sleep in our beds. The toilet was flushed with a bucket as the water to the bathroom had been disconnected, the washing machine was connected via hose pipe etc. So we have really been living very rustic. Thank goodness for mom who lives in a granny flat on our property who helped with some meals. Not the sort of camping I want to do again in a hurry. Thank goodness we are campers and have a fully equipped caravan or this experience would have been a nightmare.
Although we have been basically camping under the carport in the parking lot, we are looking forward to getting away this weekend to Pennington. The place we are going to is not a star rated place but it will be a big improvement to the way we have been living the last two months, and we know the company will be good.
Tomorrow is my birthday, (yes I am an April fool). I am now feeling very positive that the rest of the year will be good and looking forward to getting the caravan off the driveway and getting away again for our normal weekends.
Regards MArg

Dear MArg and other Friends,

My Boss tells me I must stop being upset about issues as we must enjoy our senior years together.    MArg has just raised a point that put me into a tangent.  So the Boss knows it is MArgs' fault - and we haven't even met!!!.    The issue (to me) is rechargeable batteries.

Has anyone found quality recahrgeable batteries?   I have tried various makes in various different chargers and have been dropped at a critical moment by recharged BUT flat batteries.

I now carry spare Energiser batteries wherever I go as I cannot rely on 4 recharged batteries working once installed.    

Pennington has no Nkandla contacts with batteries.   Just had to get it off my chest.

Glad you enjoyed your camp after the house issues MArg.

Theo, eina!!!!, Man, I man using them rechargable goete, and for MANY years now (camera/shaver/general) If you have a charger that works, and a battery "meter" that can give you an idea if it is charged properly, NO PROBLEM. I have 8 batteries on standby for my camera when we go on holiday, and a decent charger, and a meter contraption, and, really,

You must just remember that you get what you pay for, and, most of them don't keep charge forever.

MArg, great pics, for that matter!!!, glad it worked out fine, and next time you can, if needed, try Corian's on you own. The larger sites are when you come into the park, and turn left, just at 2nd road going upwards, not high up in the park. Perhaps, if you arwe interested, gooi me an e-mail, I have pics and perhaps I camn search for the stand numbers.

Sorry for hi-jacking the thread!!!!!

Nice pics, MArg!!!!, the 3rd photo, just past the kiosk!!!!, where my sister's son is the manager/chief in charge!!!!!

For general interest, pics 3, 4 and 5 is sort of the "main beach" of Pennington. (sorry MArg, for taking over!!!) MArg can verify, I hope I am not too far off on this one!!!!
