We rattled along in the van for ages until we got to the camp site we were staying at and then had a lovely walk up the hill to the observatory only to find the cafe closed an hour early that day so we walked back down and had a barbecue. I then read for a while and before i went to bed i had some chocolate and a card game with my ...
