Our sleepy spot view...perfect

Our sleepy spot view…perfect

Last night was absolutely brilliant. After dinner, we closed all the blinds with the exception of the windscreen. The lakeside at sunset, lined with trees and bushes, was perfect backdrop for a sharing a glass of wine and putting the world to right. We sat in the darkness for most of the night just watching the lights shimmering on the surface and listening to a selection of our favourite songs. Mac n Tosh even joined in and provided plenty chuckles with a doggy dance off. Tosh did some funky break dancing moves whilst Mac opted for a slow smooch.

First job of the day, check the battery and then swap it out for the second one! The weather was still rather miserable but at least it was raining, so we took a stroll to Plon Schloss. A rather large white palace set in an elevated position looking over the lake and small village. The well trimmed gardens and summer house provided a great place to stretch our legs before wandering down the village.

The cobbled shopping street provided a mixture of Euroland, cafes, boutique shops and tourist tat shops. Only small but a lovely stroll to the church and town hall. We managed to pick up two quick release collars for Mac n Tosh as well as 3 thermal screen blankets.


After lunch we filled Vin up with water and gave him a quick wash down with some pears shampoo before setting off the coast. We zipped through the run down port city of Kiel and scooted over to a little village just outside Schleswig. Right on the beach, so we put on the wellies and rain coats and took the boys for a mad hour on the beach. Dipping our welly tread and tiny paws in to the Baltic Sea…woohoo. Mac did his usual and got all excited and ran around like a giddy kipper, whilst Tosh found the smelliest dead object to roll around in.

The beach and surrounding countryside appeared to be part of a private estate. We weren’t too sure about parking overnight, so we bumbled a little further around the coast to the town of Damp. We arrived and sure enough it was raining! With dinner time looming we pulled over at the first parking spot and called it quits for the day.

Our sleep spot tonight, a convenient park and ride in the coastal town of Damp. Nothing like a bit of concrete and the odd weed to keep our luxurious lifestyle real!

      Thank you so much for your comments Pauline and so glad you have found it useful. One thing we did when looking for our motorhome – we visited the annual motorhome show at NEC. Every motorhome under one roof…we had a ball and it helped us no end in deciding our layout. Jo
