Life around Camp van der glam

Some pics of life around Camp van der Glam. We had Christmas and new year festivities with family, friends food, wine, dance and a whole lot of fun. The annex I made also turned out to be bonus, giving us extra space for a dinning table (that I made days before Christmas dinner) and a lounge sitting area.

At camp van der Glam

Some would say its trashed - take it to the tip !!!!.What you paid money for that ??!!! Not me - to me, it screamed renovator's delight!!!! I couldn't wait to do her up. Luck was on my side, plus some planning too.
The week I got her, we had hard rubbish in our neighbourhood. Out came all the unwanted stuff, straight on to the nature strip (sidewalk).  All around the neighbourhood there were finds to be had for the renovation.

Van der Glam

My little baby is ready for her voyage to Swansea in Tasmania after spending the last 2 months giving her the full makeover treatment. She was all glam'ed up and stocked with goodies. It was so exciting for me and master 4yo. Hubby was just hoping (as was I) for no incidents. We drove her to Port Melbourne and onto the Spirt of Tasmainia ferry for an over-night Bass Straight crossing to Devonport. From there we had a 4 hr drive to Swansea - up and down the hills we went. WHOOOHOOO -  my 1974 Capricorn caravan was dancing like a swan landing on Moulting Lagoon.
