Everything you need for the perfect picnic filled camping trip!
Camping and picnics go together like Enid Blyton and the Famous Five, who provided generations of picnickers with an enthusiasm for food eaten outdoors.’
It’s no surprise as Miss Blyton knew exactly how to hit the spot with her accounts of the lavish feasts that accompanied Julian, Dick, Anne, George and Timmy the dog on their adventures. While there’s no actual mention of lashings of ginger beer, there are often ‘lashings of boiled eggs’ made tasty with salt from the blue paper wrapper. The Five’s scrumptious food often includes tomato sandwiches, lemonade, tinned sardines, melt-in-the-mouth shortbread, pineapple chunks and bars of chocolate. The garnish is always the camper’s sense of freedom.’
So find yourself the perfect location, with a good view and ambience. As we’re into the colder months of the year, you’ll also need to get that campfire going for toasted marshmallows to round off the picnic.’
Enjoy your picnicking!
