Jelly tent

Our usual packing chaos!
It had been so very windy through the night!  Our tent would balloon massively and then bow under the next huge gust.  Vaughan was lucky and slept through everything but Nick and I were awake a lot - as was Erin in her smaller tent next door.

Given that Vaughan had slept so well, it was not greatly surprising that he was wide awake at 6:00am! He commented on waking that the tent "moved about like jelly" - and he was quite right but fortunately the wind had started to ease by then.

Nick got up at that point and I tried dozing for a bit longer (until Nick's insulin alarm went off at 7:00am). Once up, we all worked consistently and were ready for departure by 10:00am - a full hour before the check-out deadline!
